Glasgow
Glasgow’s population of around 600,000 residents ranks it as Scotland’s largest city and as the UK’s third-largest behind only London and Birmingham. With that alone in mind, it is perhaps not surprising that many people mistakenly think Glasgow – and not Edinburgh – is the capital city of Scotland. In actual fact, the local economy is also larger than that of the capital and continues to grow at one of the fastest rates in the UK. Glasgow has a varied economy, with a significant contribution from the financial services as you might expect of any major city, but also still a relatively large manufacturing sector and substantial scientific and creative industries as well.

It serves the second-largest tourist market in Scotland, after the capital, with about nine million people passing through Glasgow Airport each year. As the more westerly of Scotland’s two main cities, Glasgow naturally lends itself to travel from England’s north-west cities, and while it is some 200 miles from Liverpool or Manchester, the route is direct via the M6 and M74 and passes through some of the most picturesque scenery either England or Scotland has to offer.

Whether you are a Glasgow-based business looking to hold an event in your home city, or you want to give your delegates a taste of what Glasgow has to offer, even if your event is to showcase your products or services in an attempt to tap into the Glasgow market – Absolute Venues can help. By using our conference venue finding service, you can gain access to a wide range of venues across the city and its surrounding area, with no fee to pay for us carrying out the search on your behalf.

Once Absolute Venues have found the locations we believe are the best fit for your criteria, we will provide you with a shortlist of suitable premises, at which point it is then up to you to arrange to visit in person if necessary and to make the final decision about whether to book.

Again, we can help you save on the final cost of your booking, thanks to our long-term working relationship with some of Glasgow’s best business conference venues, who may offer a discount if you find them using our venue search service.
