Glasgow is a significant center for journalism: it is Scotland’s most important location for broadcasting, media, digital and the creative industries, and is home to the headquarters of BBC Scotland, STV and a range of major press titles including The Herald, The Daily Record, The Scottish Sun and Scottish Daily Mail.

“Scotland is a market with a remarkable diversity of national, regional and local media. We are privileged to be hosted in Glasgow by the SNS and their affiliate members,” said Vincent Peyregne, CEO Wan-Ifra..

"Scotland is steeped in the finest traditions of freedom of expression but also of media innovation -- after all, television and the telephone were both invented by Scots -- and is home to one of the most competitive and vibrant news markets anywhere in the world."

Scotland has been a crucible for the development of publishing and the concepts of freedom of expression from even before the 18th Century Age of Enlightenment. This is the home of Adam Smith, where Encyclopaedia Britannica was founded in 1768 and where three of the daily newspapers, The Herald, The Scotsman and The Courier, are over 200 years old.
