Oct 06, 2010 | News

Recent refurbishments at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) have been completed and it is now looking as good as new, according to the venue's bosses.

Over the last five years, £11 million has been spent on doing up the Glasgow venue, with the recent work costing £1 million.

Work was carried out at Hall 5, the Concourse, Armadillo and the Loch Suite, while renovated toilet facilities, freshly painted interiors and a new energy efficient boiler plant also form part of the recent refurbishment.

Ben Goedegebuure, director of sales at the SECC, said the venue has a programme of investments and improvements each year.

"Our continued investment into upgrading the SECC's facilities has been vital to its success over the last 25 years," he added.

Over the coming months, the conference centre will install a new air conditioning system in the Seminar Suite and new LED lighting in the Lomond Room.

The Glasgow venue has recently been honouring a number of its supporters, including Rod Stewart, for the role they have played in promoting the SECC over its 25 years.
