Premier events management company, Camm & Hooper, is delighted to announce the addition of Platform Glasgow to its growing and iconic portfolio of venues.

Part of its national growth strategy, this latest acquisition will enable Camm & Hooper to attract a wider national and international client base, while providing new employment and partnership opportunities for members of the Glasgow community as it has plans to grow across the region.

Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, under the iconic Argyle Street Bridge, also known as the Glasgow landmark “The Hielanman’s umbrella”, Platform is a unique venue steeped in local history and community spirit.

With every Glaswegian familiar with Platform, it is the first venue outside of London that Camm & Hooper have incorporated into its portfolio, with plans firmly in place for the disruptive events management company to expand its footprint across the UK.

A native Scot, Derick Martin, CEO of Camm & Hooper, expressed immense enthusiasm about this latest acquisition, affirming: “We’re thrilled to incorporate such an iconic and versatile venue into our portfolio. This feels like a homecoming, and we’re excited to infuse our unique touch into the wide array of events at Platform. Scott has built an incredible brand and venue and I know we will become a real events disrupter in Glasgow and beyond.

“At Camm & Hooper, we are always on the lookout for unique and distinctive venues that offer guests an unforgettable experience,” added Derick. “Platform is a perfect fit with our portfolio, as it is steeped in history and has its own unique story to tell. We are excited to add this iconic Glasgow venue to our line-up and look forward to continuing its success under the leadership of Scott McCormick and his dedicated team.”

Scott McCormick, the Managing Director of Platform, will continue to oversee operations. Sharing positive sentiment, Scott said: “We are excited to embark on this new chapter with Camm & Hooper. Their reputation for excellence and commitment to creating unique experiences aligns with our vision for Platform to establish itself as a leading venue delivering unique events for our blue-chip client base.

Platform looks forward to hosting an even wider range of diverse and memorable events in the heart of Glasgow, and it is our intention to grow the portfolio in Scotland over the next 3 years, and I am delighted to support Derick in his plans for the growth of the Camm & Hooper Brand.”

Featuring six beautifully restored arches across 35,000 st ft, Platform provides a flexible capacity for up to 600 seated guests across three arches or 1800 standing guests. It has served as the backdrop for a variety of events, from intimate private gatherings to large-scale events, cementing itself as a crucial part of Glasgow’s community.

In adding new venues to its portfolio, Camm & Hooper always set out to protect the heart and soul of the establishment and its core team. As such Platform will remain untouched, where its distinctive character and deep-rooted connection to the community will continue to thrive as always.

Committed to making event dreams a reality, Camm & Hooper will now implement valuable resource into Platform to support both clients and the Platform team, while showcasing its commitment to delivering exceptional experiences curated by extraordinary people.

One of the fastest growing premier events and hospitality companies in the UK, Camm & Hooper has grown by triple digits during 2023 alone, and is now focused on acquiring additional venues in Scotland, Manchester and Leeds within the coming months.
