The Scottish Exhibition and Conference
Centre (SECC) unveiled a new partnership with Nextbike. The agreement gives conference delegates at the SECC
complimentary access to Nextbikes throughout the duration of their event as part
of an initiative to encourage healthier delegate practice.
Nextbikes are available throughout Glasgow
and enable easy travel between the venue, and hotel district and right across
the city. Conference delegates at the SECC have 45 minutes free bike time, as
many times as they like throughout the conference; be it in the morning before
the event, over lunchtime and post event.
“We’re hoping that our association
conference clients encourage their delegates to take the opportunity to travel free
of charge whilst doing something healthier whilst exploring the city,” comments
Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales, SECC.
“Conference delegates are a major part of
the city’s economy and we’re keen to support any initiative that makes them
feel welcome, and opens up the city to them,” comments, Tessa Carnie,
Operations Assistant, Nextbikes. “This is a unique partnership we have with the
SECC and we were delighted to be working with them.”
The SECC and Glasgow City Marketing Bureau
are also in partnership at International Confex this year as they stand share
for the first time.
