MORE THAN JUST A CONFERENCE

Welcome drinks civic reception

The City of Glasgow will offer every delegate a warm welcome to our city and provide a free welcome drinks civic reception for all ISUF delegates. This will be hosted by the Lord Provost of Glasgow (City Mayor) who will personally welcome delegates and held at the Glasgow City Chambers. This impressive  100 year old architectural gem is home to the Glasgow City Council and represents Glasgow’s finest example of 19th Century architecture.

Places are limited to 500 people so do not forget to reserve your spot when registering.

Farewell conference dinner NEW!

When it comes to throwing a party, no-one matches Glasgow! And we have selected a truly special venue to host Farewell Conference Dinner. 

The Trades Halls is the home of the Trades House, an organisation dating back to the 1604. It was built between 1791 and 1794 on a design by renowned architect Robert Adam. 

After recent major refurbishment, Trades Hall now combines Glasgow’s rich Victorian architecture with modern amenities, to ensure you can relax and enjoy your event with the most stunning backdrop.

The dinner itself will be hosted in the magnificent  Grand Hall, with its opulent late Victorian décor and historical features. 

Furthermore, as a special treat for our guests, Trades House will organise free tours of the Trades Hall on the evening of the dinner. 

Walking tours out and about the city

For all ISUF’s visitors and guests, we propose a selection of walking tours showing a cross-section’of the city, how it grew and evolved and how it came to be the Glasgow we all know and love.  From monuments of past glories to best examples of contemporary architecture on display, from corners of everyday beauty, to places of struggle and conflict.

We have chosen for you five different walking tours around Glasgow: these are free to attend for all participants but bookings must be made in advance. You can pick your preferred tour option among those available during online registration and, if more places are available, during registration at the conference venue. 

Explore Scotland with day excursions

Depending on the number of participants and interest, we have organised full-day tours to tourist destinations in the beautiful Scottish Lowlands. These will take place at the end of the conference, on a Saturday. 

Each day-out excursion is has a cost of between £50.00 and £60.00 per person, depending on destination.Departure time for day-long excursions is approximately 9 a.m., while return is expected at 6 p.m. 

 Information on third-party single-day and multi-day tours to other Scottish tourist destinations will also be provided.

Do not miss out this opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful gems of Scottish lowlands, such as Edinburgh and New Lanark.
