We lead on the promotion of Glasgow to international and UK tourists. We position the city as one of the world’s most vibrant, dynamic and diverse destinations.

We promote Glasgow's unique visitor attractions including:

  • world-class museums
  • contemporary art
  • UNESCO City of Music
  • the unique architectural legacy of Charles Rennie Mackintosh
  • events

We also work with businesses across the hospitality and tourism sector to promote a full visitor experience.
