SEC welcomes return of European medical meetings

The Scottish Event Campus has welcomed the return of European medical meetings with the arrival of the 14th European Paediatric Neurology Society Congress (EPNS).

The hybrid congress took place from 28 April - 2 May and hosted approximately 1,000 delegates live in Glasgow and 600 delegates virtually.

Upcoming events

The staging of EPNS in Glasgow marks the first of 15 conferences taking place at the venue this year from the European and international medical and scientific meetings sector.

The SEC has also secured three major European conferences including the Annual Meeting of the European Society of Human Genetics (2023) Euroanaesthesia (2023) and the Annual Meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (2024). 

Securing the new European congresses is the result of a partnership approach with Glasgow Convention Bureau, the city’s scientific and academic community, and the SEC. Combined, these three conferences alone represent 54,000 delegate days.

“The commitment from the scientific and medical conference sector to meet in the future underscores the importance of conferences and the value that they bring to their communities and to society, ” commented Kathleen Warden, director of conference sales, SEC.

Aileen Crawford, head of tourism and conventions, Glasgow Convention Bureau, said: “Medical meetings are number one in Glasgow, in part due to the strong links with the city’s innovative academic and healthcare sector. The return of in person European meetings, such as EPNS, sends such a positive message to our citizens and local businesses that European delegates want to meet again and want to engage and reconnect with each other in our city."
