Scottish Event Campus

The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) features the SEC Centre - five interconnected exhibition and meeting spaces, the iconic 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo and our most recent addition, The SSE Hydro – a 13,000 capacity concert, sporting and special events arena.  With its infinite flexibility, the campus has gone from strength to strength and, with planned expansion and development, will continue to position Glasgow on the world stage.

The SSE Hydro has successfully retained its position as the second busiest entertainment venue in the world. 

The “Top 100 Worldwide Entertainment Venues” is compiled quarterly by the leading industry publication Pollstar, and is based on attendance at live entertainment events.

Debbie McWilliams, Head of Live Entertainment and Ticketing at the Scottish Event Campus commented:

“To be placed at number 2 for the first quarter and half year rankings for 2017 is fantastic.  These results can be attributed to the continual investment into our facilities which looks at ways to improve and enhance the live experience for fans, artists and production alike.  We also pride ourselves in excellent staff team work and the relationships we have with promoters, event organisers, sponsors and stakeholders.

“Major acts at The SSE Hydro including two nights of Take That, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Jeff Lynne’s ELO, have contributed to maintaining such a strong position over the period.”
