We have over 30 years of experience in welcoming national association conferences to Glasgow.

Our city centre location, array of flexible event spaces, forward thinking sustainable initiatives, first class technical support and our knowledgeable, friendly team, are amongst the many reasons we see clients return year after year.

For example, National Cancer Research Institute NCRI, hosted their Annual conference hosted at SEC in 2018 and 2019. The Royal College of General Practitioners selected the SEC as their conference venue for 2015, 2018 and 2020, whilst the SCVO The Gathering has been hosted annually at the SEC for over a decade.

At the SEC we believe that great events are created through strong collaboration.

We work in partnership with you from the outset and the award-winning Team Glasgow approach is there for you including the Glasgow Convention Bureau, local government and city stakeholders, who will support your ambitions and help create enriching experiences for delegates and exhibitors.
