Glasgow’s leading conference, music and events venues
Based in Glasgow, the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) is the country’s centre of commerce, conferences and trade fairs. Nestled alongside it on the banks of the River Clyde is its newer neighbour, The SSE Hydro, which offers unforgettable stage shows by international musicians, as well as entertainment and sporting events.
The SECCThe SECC is a the country’s leading venue for conferences, trade fairs, exhibitions and more, and as well as attracting national events, has a large appeal to international companies. It was built as part of the regeneration of the River Clyde’s old docklands and today stands as a landmark of the city. This is due mainly to the unique structure of the Clyde Auditorium, known affectionately as ‘the Armadillo’ as it is built to look like an Armadillo’s back. Inside it has a seating capacity of 3000 and versatile space that can be adapted to suit any occasion. Whether you are organising or attending, you’re guaranteed a seamless event.
The SSE HydroThe newer SSE Hydro was built to compliment the SECC and provide Glasgow with a world-class music venue that can host the world’s most sought after musicians and bands. It has certainly achieved this, and in 2015 it handled over a million ticket sales, making it the third busiest music arena globally. It also doubles as an entertainment venue hosting awards ceremonies, sporting events, ice shows and even the Glasgow Military Tattoo.
Whether you are going to see your favourite music artist perform on stage, or are hosting or attending an event at the conference centre, the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow makes for the ideal stay. It is centrally located so you can enjoy all the benefits of city centre living and easy access to both the SECC and The S0053E Hydro. If business is your main purpose and you want to impress clients or need additional meeting space after a day of trading at the SECC, the hotel offers additional meeting and business facilities.
