UKinbound is heading to Glasgow for its annual convention in 2019 for the first time in its 31-year history.

As part of UKinbound’s commitment to promoting all corners of the UK, next year’s convention on 6-8 February 2019 will see more than 260 of the association’s members converge on Glasgow for the three-day business event.

UKinbound chief executive officer, Deirdre Wells, said: “We’re delighted to announce Glasgow as the host city for our 2019 Annual Convention. Glasgow presented an impressive bid, showing its desire to engage with the travel trade and a willingness to work with us to implement a long-term tourism strategy. Substantial support has been given by its attractions and hotels, and through out the whole tender process the city showed immense flexibility and a passion to work with us.”

Delegates, representing travel trade buyers and tour operators from across Glasgow’s key international visitor markets, will have the opportunity to attend topical industry debates, B2B workshops and addresses from leading keynote speakers, as well as a black-tie gala dinner where the association’s annual Awards for Excellence are announced.

Glasgow’s bid was led by Glasgow Life with support from Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Airport, Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, VisitScotland and Scottish Enterprise.

Working in conjunction with Glasgow Life, UKinbound will arrange a series of familiarisation trips for delegates.
