Testimonials

We’re not the only ones that think Glasgow’s great, take a look at what some event organisers have to say.

MTV Europe Music Awards

 “The decision to bring MTV’s most prestigious international awards show, the EMA, to Glasgow was the culmination of several years working with the city. Throughout that time we’ve found Glasgow’s dedicated team to be a fantastic partner to work with – forward-thinking, creative and flexible, with a good understanding of how they can best contribute to the successful staging of events."

BOB BAKISH, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF VIACOM INTERNATIONAL MEDIA NETWORKS

 

Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

"Glasgow is a city with a strong track record of hosting international events. It has the venues, skills and expertise to rightfully claim its place as one of the world’s top sporting cities. As Host City of the XX Commonwealth Games, it has raised standards across the board, from accessibility to legacy and engagement. You can’t talk about Glasgow without mentioning its people. Their energy, friendliness and can-do attitude make Glasgow the complete package.”

DAVID GREVEMBERG, CHIEF EXECUTIVE, GLASGOW 2014 COMMONWEALTH GAMES

 

BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend

“After many years exploring opportunities to bring a major BBC Radio 1 event to Glasgow, we finally managed to deliver our biggest and most successful for quite a few years. The cCity simply would not have benefited from having these concerts, without the support from the Council. Throughout the process we had a fully engaged collaborative team working with the BBC, with a shared vision, passion and huge commitment – an incredibly successful partnership.”

JASON CARTER, HEAD OF LIVE MUSIC & EVENTS, POPULAR MUSIC, RADIO 1: RADIO 2: 6MUSIC: 1XTRA: BBC INTRODUCING

 

Summer Sessions

“We have worked closely with the city to host many large scale events over the years, including shows by globally successful acts in some of the city’s parks as well as at the SSE Hydro Arena. The multi-agency approach adopted in Glasgow ensures a strong team with representation across all relevant areas.”

GEOFF ELLIS, CEO DF CONCERTS

 

World Pipe Band Championships 


“This year’s World Pipe Band Championships was a record breaker in every sense. This could not have been achieved without our strong partnership with Glasgow’s first-class events, marketing and logistical teams. The meticulous planning, preparation and execution of world-class events is what sets Glasgow apart – and why the Worlds have been associated with the city for more than 60 years.”

IAN EMBELTON, CHIEF EXECUTIVE, RSPBA

 

UEFA CUP FINAL 2007

"UEFA brought the UEFA Cup Final 2007 to Glasgow knowing that beside the positive football environment, a strong professional local organising committee would be waiting for this challenge. The result of this true joint adventure was a memorable night of football, a successful event and excellent memories for all involved."

DIDIER ANDRIST, HEAD OF UEFA EVENTS

 

British Gymnastics 

“British Gymnastics (BG) has enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership with the cCity of Glasgow over many years. Glasgow’s continued success in delivering major gymnastics events in the city is attributable to their unique “One Glasgow” approach which encourages partners such as BG to work in collaboration to deliver successful events. Glasgow’s willingness to strategically work with BG over many years was instrumental in the winning of the bid to stage the prestigious Olympic qualification event – the 2015 World Gymnastics Championships.”

JANE ALLEN, CEO, BRITISH GYMNASTICS
