Glasgow to host Lib Dem conference in 2013

The Liberal Democrat party's UK conference is to be held in Scotland next year.

More than 7,000 delegates are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow.

The conference is expected to inject about £12m into the local economy via the hotel and hospitality sector.

It will be the first time the Lib Dems have held their annual party conference in Scotland for more than a decade.
