More than 300 corporate event and exhibition planners, stakeholders and media flocked to the Victoria and Albert Museum's Raphael Gallery for a night of whisky, haggis and good cheer.

The night followed the Burns Supper tradition with the Address to the Haggis, the Toast to the Lassies and the Lassies' response, and the Ceilidh dancing, all taking place alongside a pre-dinner drinks reception and a three-course meal. 

Kathleen Warden, director of conference sales at the SECC, said: "The SECC’s Burns Supper is always one of the hottest tickets in town. This year was no exception and we were really pleased to celebrate our most successful year ever with our friends across the industry.

"Hosting some of our previous, existing and prospective clients with some traditional Scottish hospitality is a great way to kick off 2016. There couldn’t be a better way to showcase the SECC, Glasgow and Scotland."
