The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) has won three significant European meetings for 2023. The European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC), the European Society for Radiotherapy Oncology (ESTRO) and the European Magnetic Resonance Meeting (EUROMAR) will all be held at the SEC and will welcome over 10,000 delegates to Glasgow.
These prestigious conferences have selected Glasgow because of its scientific strengths, a good business case, and an effective team approach from the academic and scientific communities, the SEC and Glasgow Convention Bureau – these are the critical success factors for attracting high-profile conferences.
Simon Blows, Event Logistics and Development Manager at the Institution of Engineering and Technology, said: “The IET is thrilled to be bringing ECOC to Glasgow in 2023. As a global hub for photonics research with institutions such as the nanofabrication centre at the University of Glasgow, the Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics and the Institute of Photonics at Strathclyde University, Glasgow is well equipped to host ECOC. 2023’s event is expected to feature many local innovations and technical advances.”
Professor Anthony Chalmers, Chair of Clinical Oncology at the University of Glasgow, said: “We are thrilled that Glasgow has been selected as the host for ESTRO’s Annual Congress. ESTRO’s goal is to demonstrate progress in the optimal use of radiation oncology. The congress is a catalyst for us to deliver the local engagement project which aims to increase the use of radiotherapy for cancer patients across the West of Scotland.”
