The SECC partnered with Glasgow City Marketing Bureau to secure the event, which hosted its 30th annual congress this week in Bangkok, Thailand.
Aileen Crawford, head of conventions, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, said: "Our success can largely be attributed to our close working city-wide relationships between the SECC, academic institutions, our hotels and our meeting hubs. Conferences mean big business to Glasgow’s economy."
The IAP in 2020 will welcome a host of international delegates to share research and theories for scientific, technological and methodological advancement.
In the last financial year, Glasgow hosted 453 conferences, injecting £118m in local economic benefit.
