Scottish Event Campus opens new venue after £500,000 investment

The SEC Meeting Academy officially opens mid-February and can hold up to 400 delegates.

The Scottish Event Campus has opened the SEC Meeting Academy. The facility is a £500,000 investment, and the newly created space is ideal for self-contained small to medium-sized meetings.

Alternatively, the space can be integrated with the wider SEC conference facilities, providing a VIP space for larger meetings. 

The SEC Meeting Academy has a central 300-400 theatre-style capacity room and links with breakout rooms and networking spaces overlooking the concourse.

Director of conference sales Kathleen Warden said: "The SEC Meeting Academy is a fantastic addition to our campus. The flexibility of the space means that we can accommodate more small to mid-sized meetings while offering larger events more space and more diversity."

Alongside the larger theatre space, the four smaller meeting rooms formerly known as the Seminar Suite are being upgraded in line with the new facility and form part of the SEC Meeting Academy.
