Destination Media Hub

The Destination Media Hub will be located at 40 John Street, Glasgow G1 1JL within the COP26 Host City Zone as a drop-in facility for Scottish, UK and international press and broadcasters who will be in Glasgow during the conference.

It will be open to all COP26 accredited media as well as non-accredited media on presentation of their bona fide press credentials and will operate daily from 0900-1900 between Thursday 28 October and Friday 12 November.

The DMH team will be on hand to assist media with destination enquiries on Glasgow and Scotland, as well as facilitate the booking of official city camera positions.

The ‘Made in Glasgow’ showcase meanwhile will highlight the city’s innovative approach to sustainability - particularly through circular economy principles - and also profile its creativity across art, architecture, design, film, fashion, food and drink.

Media will have access to free Wi-Fi and be able to enjoy a taste of Glasgow with complimentary refreshments from local suppliers. There is space within the DMH for one-to-one meetings or to find a hot desk if a deadline is looming!

The DMH will also be the media pass collection point for news outlets filming at the bookable stand up locations as detailed in the Glasgow Broadcast Guide.

All necessary COVID-19 measures, in line with Scottish Government guidelines, will be in place to protect media and staff within the Destination Media Hub.

If you can, please email us to let us know you’re planning to drop by at:

We look forward to welcoming you to the DMH!


COP26 Host City Zone

Located at Glasgow City Chambers, the COP26 Host City Zone will build on Glasgow’s sustainability ambitions and act as a hub that allows it to engage with a wide range of partners from across the world as well as other cities and city networks. This activity not only will be an important legacy opportunity for Glasgow but it will also help reinforce the city’s position as a world leader in the race to net zero and a place where green business can be done.
