The Location

Thank you Glasgow for playing host to the Plant Science Convention 2015!

This was the first time that the Plant Science Convention has been held in Scotland and we must say that this was one of our most successful years yet.

We were honoured to hold this year’s convention in the historical city of Glasgow, a town that is rightly famed for it’s rich scientific heritage. Despite the city’s frigid Northern climate, there has been a burgeoning study of exotic plants and organisms for centuries.

Scotland has been home to some truly legendary scientists. Alexander Fleming, Robert Brown, Thomas Hopkirk, Duncan Napier – the list goes on and on. So many great men have either been born here or have come to one of the great educational institutes to learn, it’s no wonder that the Plant Science Convention has not already been hosted in a Scottish city.

Held at the iconic SEC Centre, just a stone’s throw away from the River Clyde, it’s a perfect venue to host the thousands that attend every year to learn and share their passion for Plants.
