The SECC is the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre located on what was the docks of the Clyde in Glasgow. Known informally locally as the 'Red Shed' when it first opened in 1985 because it's corrugated shell was predominantly red but has since been painted grey when the second phase 'Armadillo' building was added in 1997, so called because it is shaped like an armadillo and is finished with stainless steel. A third phase of the development is in construction at the time of writing (2007) and is expected to elevate this facility to world class status.
The Scottish Motor Show, Modern Homes Exhibition and many Concerts have all been held at the SECC
