Are you looking for a cool, edgy and fun incentive destination for 2019? Are your incentive groups bored of the ‘normal’ incentive travel destinations? Then you should consider Glasgow and its vibrant culture, amazing restaurants, welcoming people and truly Scottish experiences.
Here’s just some of what incentive travellers could enjoy in Scotland’s largest and arguably best city (we may be a little bias!).
Connect with the music
Kick of the year with an incentive trip to Glasgow, taking in the events and wonderful atmosphere of the Celtic Connections festival. Attracting musical talent from around the world and the best local Scottish talent, Celtic Connections is the largest winter musical festival of its kind and your group can enjoy being part of it. Not only does the city buzz with excitement, but there are countless gigs and events that groups can enjoy.
And if you can’t make the festival, we’ll bring the traditional folk music to your group. Have a folk duo during a low-key dinner or have an all-out party with a ceilidh.
Watch the professionals at work
If you’ve got an incentive group who are keen on sports there is always something happening in Glasgow. The Emirates Arena – a 2014 Commonweath Games legacy – plays host to some fabulous sporting events throughout the year, plus Glasgow’s love of football means there is always a game to watch.
Coming up in 2019, guests could enjoy a trip to the European Indoor Athletics Championship or European Short Course Swimming Championships as part of their incentive trip.
If golf and big budgets are more your thing, then how about a helicopter transfer to Gleneagles for the Solhiem Cup to watch the best golfers from Europe and the USA go head-to-head!
Tuck into delicious food
Glasgow has the finest selection of restaurants in the country offering everything from formal dining to casual street food markets, many of whom use Scotland’s natural larder to create amazing dishes. Have a look at The Finniestion Foodie on Instgram to see just some of the cuisine you could be enjoying on a Glasgow incentive trip.
Not your typical tour
As an incentive visitor it’s nice to learn about the country / city you are visiting, but that doesn’t have to mean a standard city tour. Some of our favourite Glasgow ‘tours’ include:
The Mural Trail
Glasgow has a huge range of murals and street art that adorn the sides of buildings, shops and vacant land. Some are tributes, some are inspired by TV & film, and others are emotive and meaningful.
A Pub Crawl
Glasgow is a fantastic place for a pub crawl! We can plan visits to a selection of pubs, bars, breweries and distilleries based on your groups interests (and stamina!). For example, a gin or whisky tour, a real ale tour, or a ‘true taste of Glasgow’ tour.

Costal Yacht Experience
Take a tour of the coastline and islands around the Firth of Clyde on your own chartered yacht, taking in the wildlife and the stunning scenery of the West of Scotland.
Hotels with a view
The cool new Radisson Red has just opening on the Clyde front and we love it. It’s modern, funky, has a roof top bar and a dog. What more could you want from a city centre hotel?!
We’re also pleased that the 5* Cameron House Hotel will be reopening in the Autumn. It’s the ideal place for high end groups and is perfect for a city/country split programme, just look at the hotel views over Loch Lomond...
