Glasgow and Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre
Glasgow is one of Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities – a friendly and safe place to visit where the people are proud of their heritage and delight in making visitors welcome to their wonderful City.
Glasgow is also widely recognised as one of the world’s most exciting cultural capitals. Following its reign as European City of Culture in 1990, you’ll find that any year is just as exciting for the arts, entertainment and a host of other pursuits the City has to offer. Glasgow’s extensive art collections are world famous from the Gallery of Modern Art to the Burrell Collection. Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery has reopened after a £27.9 million refurbishment programme to create modern facilities, services and displays while ensuring the building itself can be seen to its best effect.
The City is also renowned for its Victorian Architecture and for the work of its most famous architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander “Greek” Thomson, examples of whose work can be seen throughout the City. Glasgow means “dear green place” and you will find over 70 beautiful parks and gardens, all set in an area surrounded by some of the world’s most attractive scenery. Glasgow is also ideally situated for those who want to extend their stay in Scotland.

The venue for ICSEMIS is the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) which is Scotland’s premier national venue for public events, concerts and conferences. The venue has hosted 3,889 events and welcomed over 28 million visitors since opening its doors in 1985.
The SECC itself is situated on the banks of the River Clyde in the heart of Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow. The SECC has transport links to the city which are second to none, as it is located alongside the major motorway network, has its own subway station, and is only 20 minutes from the international airport.
