“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.
