Aileen Crawford

Aileen has been Head of the Glasgow Convention Bureau since 2011, which has been voted the UK’s best convention bureau every year since 2007. She is currently on the Board of ICCA UK and Ireland, is a former board member of the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) and is a champion of meetings industry collaboration and best practice. 

"Glasgow has aspirations to become one of Europe’s most sustainable cities by 2020 with a focus on improving quality of life in the city, protecting the environment and developing a green economy that puts sustainability at the top of the agenda. We’ve already made great strides in that respect, with Glasgow currently ranked seventh on the Global Destination Sustainability Index. As the only UK city to be included, it is incredibly motivating to see Glasgow recognised as a destination at the forefront of best practice and responsible business tourism. Leading the Glasgow Convention Bureau team and working with partners across the city, I am committed to helping Glasgow achieve its sustainability objectives."
