The Scottish Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC) has secured a number of major business wins, including two large conferences and six new exhibitions.

More than 1,000 restaurant managers will attend the Kentucky Fried Chicken annual regional managers conference in early 2017, while 2,500 delegates are expected at the annual Arbonne Advantage Conference in autumn.

The exhibitions making their debut at the venue include A Place in the Sun Live (29-30 October), Salon Expo (5-6 March 2017), Scotland Works (3-4 May 2017), The Natural Show (3-4 June 2017), Installer (6-7 September 2017) and UCAS (19 September 2017).

Dan Thurlow, director of exhibition sales said: "These new additions to our event portfolio endorse the SECC’s position as one of the UK’s leading exhibition venues. We are consistently attracting new events keen to engage with the population of Scotland and see our campus as the ideal place to do that."

The two conference wins follow the strengthening of the SECC corporate team led by Glenda Carlyle in the newly appointed role of senior sales manager, corporate sales.

Speaking of the corporate wins, Kathleen Warden, director of conferences at the SECC, said: "We are delighted to confirm these two prestigious corporate events for 2017. The SECC and the city of Glasgow offer a fantastic business case for corporate meetings and a destination backdrop for inspiring delegates at annual meetings and we are looking forward immensely to hosting both events. Our corporate business goes from strength to strength and we are continually looking to find ways of helping to provide delegates with memorable experiences."
