The SECC and Glasgow have clinched three major medical conferences, which combined should bring 14,500 delegates to the city next year.
The conferences are: 9th European Breast Cancer Conference, EBCC-9, 19-21 March 2014; the Société Internationale d’Urologie, SIU World Congress, 12-16 October 2014 and the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) 13-17 September 2014.
“These are the kinds of event where the SECC really thrives; delivering large delegate numbers and an experience, through conference and exhibition content, that is both personal and allows delegates to get the most of the conference,” says SECC Sales Director Ben Goedegebuure.
“These are major conferences discussing significant subject matters and we’re delighted that they have put their trust in our venue,” he adds.
Aileen Crawford, Head of Conventions at Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, says: “Glasgow’s reputation as a centre for ground-breaking medical research and development, particularly through the work of Glasgow, Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian Universities, is globally renowned. This announcement proves that Glasgow is now also a destination of choice for the most important medical and scientific conferences.”
The SECC campus recently saw the completion of the SSE Hydro making the SECC one of the few venues around the world to hold purpose built, large scale venues, for conference, exhibition and live events.
