Doherty, said: "Celia and I have worked together on a number of projects over the past few years.

We are really excited to now provide a Scottish base for Happening, and look forward to our continued relationship with Glasgow City Marketing Bureau."

Lloyd added that it was ‘a great opportunity’ to increase support for association conferences throughout the UK, Irish and Scottish markets.
