About Glasgow

As Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow is a bustling, vibrant place, with much to offer visitors. Well known for its culture and architecture, shopping and lively nightlife, the city centre is the dynamic heart of this warm and friendly city. But that’s not all there is to Glasgow. The beautiful waterfront of the River Clyde and green spaces of Glasgow’s parks provide a haven for outdoor enthusiasts too; there’s something for everyone. Glasgow has a reputation for eating, drinking and being merry! And from the vast array of pubs, clubs and restaurants you’ll find on your doorstep, wherever you stay in the city, it’s not hard to see why!


Teeming with history, nightlife, and cultural attractions, the dynamic city of Glasgow is one of the world’s most attractive destinations!

Gala Dinner at the Kelvingrove

Opened in 1901 and housing 22 galleries filled with world class fine art, stunning design pieces and artefacts from around the globe, the magnificent Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum will host delegates for the IPBIS Conference Gala Dinner.

Situated in Glasgow’s park-filled West End, delegates will enjoy dinner and libations, followed by a lively Scottish Ceilidh (participation is encouraged!). The Museum’s magnificent collection can also be viewed by delegates during this unique event.
