Business events membership

Join the many businesses that benefit from the activity of Glasgow Convention Bureau.

Glasgow enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the best equipped and most successful conventions destinations in the world. This is testament to the strong teamwork that exists between Glasgow Convention Bureau’s award-winning team and industry members across the city.

Each year over 100 businesses choose to become a member of Glasgow Convention Bureau and benefit from the 500 conferences secured for the city each year. Conferences attract 150,000 delegates to Glasgow with delegates representing one in five hotel bed-nights.

The Glasgow Convention Bureau has been named the ‘UK’s Best Convention Bureau’ for 17 consecutive years at the Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) industry awards.

Convention Bureau membership is not only open to conference specific venues but also to accommodation providers and suppliers such as transport providers, caterers and professional conference organisers.

The Convention Bureau at Glasgow Life help us set our venue and academic expertise in the context of our unique host city, bringing together an offer that is far more than the sum of its parts. This sets the tone for the warm welcome delegates can expect when they arrive in Glasgow.
