During Taylor’s time as chief executive the convention bureau has brought more than £1.2bn worth of conference business and almost 3,500 conferences to the city.
GCMB also reported its best ever conference sales this past financial year (April 2014 to March 2015), confirming 504 new conventions worth £140m, which is almost £2.7m of new business every week, representing a 3% year-on-year increase.
Taylor said: "I’ve held the chief executive position at Glasgow City Marketing Bureau for the past ten years and what a decade it has been. The city has gone above and beyond to compete in a market place that has grown increasingly fierce in order to stand shoulder to shoulder with other world-leading cities."
Annemarie O’Donnell, chief executive of Glasgow City Council, said: "Scott has led a team that has delivered successes for Glasgow which would have been unthinkable in the past. Glasgow is now Scotland’s fastest growing tourism destination and between now and Scott stepping down at the end of February we will take steps to ensure we have the structures in place to continue Glasgow City Marketing Bureau’s success."
