About the Scottish Exhibition + Conference Centre

The Scottish Exhibition + Conference Centre (SECC) is part of a riverside campus, located 5 minutes equidistant from the heart of Glasgow and Glasgow’s West End. The SECC Campus includes 4 onsite hotels; a dedicated train station, social programme venues, The SSE Hydro; Scotland’s National Arena, and national media headquarters (BBC). The principal hotel district is within walking distance and just a couple of minutes by taxi or train. Delegates attending events at the SECC regularly enjoy the vibrant nightlife of Finnieston, which was recently named as the ‘hippest place to live’ in the UK by The Times.

Venue services

There are two Clydesdale Bank ATMs in the West lobby of the SEC Centre and one on the ground floor of The SSE Hydro.

The cloakroom is located on the ground floor of the SEC Centre. Visitors can deposit items for the duration of the event for £2 per item, per day. Please note that items cannot be left in the cloakroom overnight.

Information Desk
The Information Desk is located on the ground floor of the SEC Centre adjacent to the main doors.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the SEC

Medical Centre
For general medical enquiries and support, contact the Medical Centre in the SEC Centre who will be pleased to help visitors.

The well-equipped Medical Centre is located at the east end of the concourse in the SEC Centre. There is also a fully equipped Medical Room on the ground floor of The SSE Hydro.

While on site, the medical staff can be approached directly, or via one of our stewards.

Food & Drink

Clydebuilt Bar & Kitchen is conveniently located at the East entrance of the SEC Centre. Clydebuilt is open during all conferences and exhibitions.

Food is available from the bar where diners can enjoy a range of dishes including sharing platters, bar snacks, traditional stone baked pizzas and our signature ‘Clydebuilt’ burgers.

The Kitchen area, located at the opposite end to the bar, offers a more intimate environment. As with everything at Clydebuilt, we have put great design at the heart of this space. Ambient lighting and a number of reclaimed furniture pieces create a modern vibe and a truly memorable place to dine. The Kitchen menu is more substantial with the addition of starters, mains, salads and desserts.
