Welcome to the COP26 media portal, a one-stop resource to help journalists, broadcasters and influencers plan their coverage of Glasgow’s hosting of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) as well as providing insights on what makes the city and the wider City Region a word-class, sustainable destination in which to do business, convene, visit, live, visit, experience and study.

Destination Media Lounge

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 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 as 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.
