Glasgow Convention Bureau has long been a supporter of considering the social impact that having the world’s best minds in your city can have on the local community.
Responding now to ICCA‘s recommendation that convention bureaux offer support to associations to help them achieve their legacy objectives, Glasgow created its Positive Impact and Legacy Team.
Campbell Arnott, Senior Business Development Manager at Glasgow Convention Bureau, the lead on the project said: “Since 2010, when the World Parkinson’s Congress won the ICCA Best Marketing Award, the team at Glasgow Convention Bureau have supported over 20 associations to meet their legacy goals by working with city partners to amplify public health messaging across Glasgow. This has resulted in two international associations winning ICCA’s Incredible Impact Award in recent years, evidencing the importance of these initiatives to the wider industry.”
Made up of representatives from the 3 business units within the Convention Bureau – National Sales, International Sales and Conventions Support – the team has a broad breadth of experience in delivering a wide variety of public engagement and legacy events across the city.
