In June 2017, the Scottish Event Campus hosted TEDxGlasgow for their fifth annual Glasgow event. TED is a non-partisan, non-profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TEDxGlasgow are TED’s satellite events in areas outside of the US.
The event utilised every facility that the campus has to offer – from catering right through to The SSE Hydro where 1,500 visitors were treated to an exclusive flight from The ‘Iron Man’ – Richard Browning, who also gave a talk himself. The drinks reception on the final evening was also hosted in The SSE Hydro.
The Armadillo was used primarily for talks and lunch bags were provided to delegates who could enjoy their food whilst networking in the grounds of the campus by the Clyde.
