The venue for the conference is the Grand Central Hotel located in Glasgow's city centre. The hotel was designed by Scottish architect Robert Rowand Anderson and he adopted the Queen Anne style of architecture; an informal style that includes picturesque details, intricate gables and multi-paned windows. Over the years, the hotel was extended and adapted but the main architecture was maintained.

The Central Hotel played host to many significant celebrity faces but is probably best known for being the venue to which the world's first long-distance television pictures were transmitted on 24 May 1927 by John Logie Baird. The Central Hotel has entertained most of the world's leading politicians, from JFK to Winston Churchill and Hollywood superstars including Laurel and Hardy and Frank Sinatra, not to mention Roy Rogers and his trusty Trigger. It was reported that Trigger had a bigger suite than Roy Rogers!
