Social Programme

The conference has a social programme to maximise your opportunities to network and to enjoy Glasgow.

Details of how to get involved will be provided after registration, and through the conference app.

City chamber reception
17:00 – 18:00 Sunday 15 September

On the eve of the conference The Rt Hon Lord Provost of Glasgow will be hosting a civic reception at the City Chambers to welcome all conference participants to the city.

Glasgow’s City Chambers is a prestigious building dominating George Square in the heart of the city with breathtaking architecture inside and out, including the Carrara marble staircase. Completed in 1888, it is a working building hosting councillors’ offices, committee rooms, the council chamber and the Lord Provosts Office.

All those attending the conference and the preconference masterclasses are invited to attend the reception and have been automatically registered for access.

We very much look forward to seeing you there.

Eve of conference – where to dine
Sunday 15 September

‘Group booking’ arrangements have been made for delegates and contributors to be able go for dinner as a group at a choice of restaurants in the Merchant City area of the City. This pay-your-own-way option removes the need to search for where to eat on the eve of the conference!

Whether you want to get to know other delegates you’ve just met at the civic reception or you’re attending the conference with a team of colleagues, this option will have something for everyone.

A list of recommended restaurants across the city will also be provided.

Meet-ups
Monday 16 September and Tuesday 17 September

With people coming to the conference from countries in every continent, we’re keen to facilitate some regional meet-ups. So when you register, let us know if you would be interested in this and we’ll see if we can bring people together in this way.
