Scottish Event Campus (SEC)
The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) features the SEC Centre– five interconnected exhibition and meeting spaces, the iconic 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo and the SSE Hydro – a 13,000 capacity concert, sporting and special events arena. With its infinite flexibility, the campus has gone from strength to strength and, with planned expansion and development, will continue to position Glasgow on the world stage. The venue has a dedicated area for nursing mothers, which is available, and will provide access to microwaves for warming food. In addition, to maximize convenience for nursing mothers, EUSEM will provide a dedicated nursing lounge in the exhibition area (Hall 5). For any other specific requirements, ask at the registration desk and we will do everything possible to find a satisfactory solution.
