General Information about Glasgow for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and the third most populated one in the United Kingdom. It expanded from a small village on the river Clyde to become nowadays the largest seaport in the UK. With the establishment of the University of Glasgow in the 15th century, the city became a major centre of the Scottish Enlightenment, and starting with the 18th century, it developed into one of Great Britain’s main hubs for transatlantic trade with the West Indies and North America. Glasgow is famous for its Art Nouveau and Victorian architecture, and is home to important cultural institutions such as: the Scottish Opera, the Scottish Ballet, the National Theatre of Scotland, the Theatre Royal, the Pavilion Theatre, the King’s Theatre, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the Glasgow Film Theatre, the Tron Theatre, the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), the Mitchell Library and Theatre, the Centre for Contemporary Arts, the McLellan Galleries, and the Lighthouse Museum of Architecture. Glasgow is also an important financial center. Located on the west side of the city, its famous financial district, officially known as the International Financial Services District (and less officially as ‘the Wall Street on Clyde’) is home to eight of the ten largest insurance companies in the UK, including Direct Line, Esure, AXA, and the Norwich Union.
