This May, Glasgow, Scotland will open its doors to thousands of visitors for the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress. Glasgow—a city known for its rich history and vibrant cultural heartbeat—has much to offer visitors. From fascinating attractions, to stunning architecture, great food, world class entertainment and cozy neighbourhoods to explore, there’s really something for anyone in this Scottish city. But Glasgow also has another special quality, that is very important for visitors: some of the friendliest people in the world. That has given Glasgow a reputation of warmth and hospitality that is known worldwide.
Stroll around the city, and, if you should get lost, a local is likely to walk with you to the nearest landmark to help get you back on track. Ask a local where the nearest pub is, and you just might have found yourself someone to chat with over a pint of local beer. Glaswegians also love to laugh, and their open sense of humour will bring a smile to your face. One amusing challenge you may face is deciphering the heavy Glaswegian accent, but isn’t that part of the fun of travelling?
The WFH and The Haemophilia Society are both very excited about welcoming the bleeding disorders to community to Glasgow, Scotland this May. We have been working with local tourism groups to ensure that the WFH 2018 World Congress will be a very special one indeed, with ample opportunity to learn about the host city.
Glasgow truly is an amazing city to have the Congress in, and we’re sure you’ll agree. We hope to see you there this May. To find out more about the WFH 2018 World Congress and to register, click here.
