Glasgow House, a business hub and event space in the Merchants House of Glasgow, welcomed business guests and international representatives during the UCI Cycling World Championships on 3-13 August 2023. Glasgow House, a partnership between Glasgow Life and Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, offered an opportunity for businesses to engage with this major event, while showcasing Glasgow leadership and innovation. Glasgow House was open to business delegates from across the city and beyond.
Glasgow House featured themed days, including
Diversity and Inclusion, Innovation, Travel and Transport,
Digital, Life Sciences, Built Environment/City Centre and Sustainability and covered topics such as planning for net zero, the Glasgow innovation hub, circularity, digital connectivity, eco-systems development, skills, neurodiversity and investment opportunities within the city.
“Glasgow hosting the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships brought together the world’s elite riders to compete at the highest level over 13 world championships. Glasgow has such a rich and innovative business community and events like the
UCI championships are an excellent opportunity to show international dignitaries, business leaders and investors how the city is leading the way on issues such as green technologies, financial services, and life sciences.”
“Mega events like this are critical to our economy and over the last decade Glasgow has cemented its reputation as a world-class host for global events. It is estimated that the championships added £67m to our economy and, much like during the Commonwealth Games and European Championships, businesses played a key role in ensuring that not only the event itself was successful, but that we created a lasting legacy from it. Having Glasgow House established for the ten days during the Championships was excellent news for businesses looking to build this legacy and promote their business to the world.”
