Golden week for Scottish venue




Following on from reported success in securing conferences by Brighton, a flurry of association business has also been witnessed elsewhere in the UK at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow, with three new events were confirmed, recently, within seven days.
 
The phenomenal week of business includes secured contracts with the Institute for Safety and Health (IOSH), International Association for Teaching English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL) and the Scottish Patient Safety conference. These recent wins add to an already successful first quarter for the SECC with other contracts secured, including the MOBO Awards, which celebrate excellence in black and ethnic minority music.
 
"All the business secured by our excellent sales team in just one week is fantastic news for the SECC and Glasgow,” said the venue’s director of sales, Ben Goedegebuure.

“In these challenging times, we are working harder and smarter with prospective clients to deliver conference solutions, which will ultimately benefit them and bring business to our venue".
 
Molly Doheny, head of the Convention Bureau at Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, was also delighted with the bookings, saying: “These wins in rapid succession demonstrate Glasgow’s continuing attractiveness as a destination for meetings and conventions. We worked closely with the SECC on this conference business and it’s another great result for ‘team Glasgow’.”
