Business events are crucial to maintaining the city’s tourism industry and reinforcing the city’s economic strengths. With a focus on key sectors and the growth of the city’s ambassador programme, we will build on the city’s business tourism credentials and grow our calendar of UK and International conferences.
We will continue to target conferences that deliver added value to the city – through their profile and scale. The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) is an important asset, core to Glasgow’s success in attracting and staging conferences and major events. To build the city’s capacity and enable further growth, investment plans for the SECC are essential to maintain our competitiveness.
