The Society of Experimental Biology will host its annual conference in Glasgow in 2011. It is the third time that Scotland has won the bid and it is expected to draw around 850 delegates from the science community.
The SECC will also host the European Congress of Conservation Biology in 2012, after beating competition from rival venues in Seville and Copenhagen. The event will attract 1,650 delegates from the science community including biochemists, researchers and biologists.
SECC director of sales Ben Goedegebuure said: "Our close ties with the city's universities and its scientific community, as well as the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB) have been instrumental in attracting these specialist events."
GCMB Chief Executive Scott Taylor added: "Securing conventions of this stature are a result of GCMB, SECC, hotels and academic partners working together to achieve conference success."
The SECC recently sharpened its environmental credentials, something that is thought to have helped it to secure both pieces of business. Earlier this year it won a Gold award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme, a national sustainable tourism award, and was recently recognised by leading conservation charity Trees for Life for its sponsorship of the reforestation of the Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands.
