Glasgow prepares to host record-breaking International Symposium on ALS/MND
Glasgow is getting ready to welcome over 1,300 of the world’s top researchers and clinicians working in the field of motor neurone disease to this year’s International Symposium on ALS/MND. Taking place from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th December 2018, the 29th International Symposium is set to achieve record breaking delegate attendance figures.
The Symposium is organised by MND Association and this year is hosted by MND Scotland.
Scotland aims to become a world leader in Motor Neurone Disease clinical care and research. Indeed, welcoming such a prestigious international conference helps to cement Glasgow’s reputation as one of the world’s leading conventions cities while highlighting the city’s position at the epicentre of medical innovation and world-leading research.
To ensure Glasgow gives the warmest welcome possible to all attendees, Glasgow Convention Bureau has partnered with Glasgow Welcomes (supported by Scottish Enterprise) and VisitScotland to launch the People Make Glasgow Welcome initiative. A crucial element of this being the free educational sessions designed to help taxi drivers, staff at the transport hubs, Scottish Event Campus, hotels, restaurants and visitor attractions better understand the requirements of delegates who will soon be arriving in Glasgow.
