Glasgow has a population of approximately 630,000 persons and a vibrant economy, particularly in the licensed and retail sectors, helped by a large student population from Glasgow University, Strathclyde University, Glasgow Caledonian University as well as a number of technical colleges. Glasgow is now one of the main entertainment/conference centres in Europe and is home to many attractions, including the SECC, Hydro, Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
