Scottish Event Campus
The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) is Scotland’s premier integrated events venue, with over 22,000sqm of infinitely flexible space. The venue is based in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city and commercial capital.
The Campus comprises of three venues – the SSE Hydro, the SEC Armadillo and the SEC Centre. Between these, there are 20 meeting rooms, five exhibition halls and three purpose-built auditoria seating 624, 3000 and 12,000. The most recent addition to the SEC is the SEC Meeting Academy – a repurposed space on the mezzanine level of the SEC Centre. The new venue offering is suitable for small meetings up to 400 delegates and can be used both as a single space or as an additional breakout for larger meetings.
Situated on the banks of the River Clyde, the SEC is continuously evolving and now boasts over 1,000 hotel rooms on site, with the most recent addition being a Radisson RED hotel with a rooftop bar. At the other end of the campus, you’ll find the new Clydeside Distillery, a thoughtful repurposing of a former dock pumphouse which gives additional hospitality options for organisers. The SEC benefits significantly from strong cross-city partnerships with organisations including Glasgow Life, Glasgow Convention Bureau and Visit Scotland which ensures delegates always receive a well-rounded, authentic experience in the city.
The team at the venue are experienced in a huge number of disciplines and will stop at nothing to ensure the best possible event for clients. From the military precision of logistical arrangements and the exciting possibilities for social programmes to the added value of media and public engagement and everything in between, you’ll find that the SEC team literally thinks of everything.
Speaker Bio: Glenda Carlyle
Born and bred in Bolton, I started my career in a small hotel that had 32 bedrooms and small conference and banqueting facilities. I progressed through the ranks of pot wash, waitress, receptionist, conference and banqueting. Fast forward 20 years and, after meeting my husband in Rhodes, have lived and worked in Glasgow at the Scottish Event Campus for 17 years. The SEC is a fantastic venue to sell. My current position is Senior Sales Manager in the corporate team, and although I’ve been here for a number of years, no two days are the same – I love the buzz of winning new business and working out the best solutions for clients.
