The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, a meeting venue set in picturesque ground on the banks of the River Clyde in Clydebank, near Glasgow, has become the latest member of the globally renowned International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA).

The membership was approved in April 2019 welcoming the Greater Glasgow venue to the ICCA family that includes top conference destinations, suppliers and venues within the international meetings industry.

As Scotland’s dedicated public sector residential conference venue – the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel combines all the standards of a four-star hotel with the facilities required for successful conferences, training and meetings.

Membership of the ICCA will attract additional national and international clients which will lead to a positive economic impact for the local community.

“We facilitate a large number of NHS and healthcare events each year, continually striving to build relationships and work with the various medical associations across the country, and internationally, to bring conferences to our venue and Scotland. The Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel looks forward to developing links and enjoying future successes within the ICCA family,” commented the management of the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel.
