from Glasgow Airport there is a good bus-connection with the city centre. The airport bus (number 500) runs to and from the terminal and George Square every 10 minutes and takes 15 minutes (allow 30-40 minutes at peak times).  Buscompanies CityLink and Megabus both go from Glasgow Buchanan bus station to Edinburgh Airport, which has more options for European flights.

Hotel accommodation:
We advise you to book a room in Premier Inn (3*) Glasgow Centre (George Square) – which is nearest to the meeting venue. If you prefer a 4* hotel, the nearest is probably the Millennium Hotel on George Square.  Likewise, the Queen Street Travelodge is 2* and nearby.
