And even before the launch of the £73 million international attraction – the Glasgow Science Centre – Judy was instrumental in the vision, creation and implementation of the corporate event experience at the Centre.

Best Event attended?
The Scottish Tourism Alliance Conference, Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh March 2014.

For me this event stands out because it had all the key elements to make a great conference. A strong programme of speakers meant there was excellent take-away information presented in an innovative, professional and interesting way. All of the organisations involved were outstanding.

The beautifully refurbished Assembly Rooms added to the overall success of the event – even the food was impressive.

All of these details are important because they create tangible returns on investment.
