More than over 220 dignitaries, buyers, stakeholders and media in the conference, meetings & events industry enjoyed traditional fare including a serving of haggis, neeps and tatties, interspersed with a tongue-in-cheek version of the Toast to the Lassies and the customary Lassies’ Reply. .
Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales at the SECC said: “The SECC’s Burns Supper has become a staple in London’s events calendar and we really succeeded to add a unique, modern touch this year.
It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to meet previous, existing and prospective clients in an informal way, tell them about Glasgow and the SECC, as well as enjoy some fantastic entertainment.”
Dan Thurlow, Director of Exhibition Sales at the SECC, adds: “2014 was a fantastic year for the SECC with events such as Comic Con and BBC Good Food Show. 2015 is set to be a year of growth for the SECC with a number of high profile events scheduled and significant planned investment in the building, so last night’s Burns Supper was a fantastic way to kick off the year and thank all our partners for their support in the past and for years to come.”
The event was supported by Visit Scotland, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB), Compass Group and Glengoyne Whisky.
