Spotlight on: BioCity

There have been some exciting developments at corporate venue BioCity, which include the creation of a new contemporary social space and cafe, called ‘Nowhere’.

VenuesLanarkshire spoke with Claire Russell, Marketing and Communication Coordinator to find out what the revamp means for visitors:


What are the main features of the refurb project?

‘Nowhere’ has everything you could ever want in one place.

There is a gym, hot-desking area, three mini ‘living rooms’, a canteen to purchase food or prepare your own and banquet style seating.

While it is mostly open plan, the space has been divided into sections with each area assuming a different purpose.


How will the new space benefit delegates?

It is a completely unexpected and contemporary space for its location. It is much less corporate than a traditional meeting room or event hall and the nature of the space means it can be made to feel as intimate or spacious as needed.

By having so many facilities under one roof, delegates can work-out, enjoy lunch and complete business without leaving the premises.  

BioCity is also halfway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, making it equally accessible from two of Scotland’s largest cities.



Describe the design of the Nowhere

It’s a contemporary space, which has an industrial feel, but with lots of soft furnishings and comfortable seating to make it feel relaxed and welcoming.

Large floor to ceiling windows span two lengths of the room, making it very bright and airy.   

The icing on the cake is the neon sign, which reads ‘Welcome to Nowhere’.

BioCity is a 13,000-square foot site home to dynamic and growing life science companies. It boasts nine individual event spaces, which range from intimate meeting rooms to a large lecture theatre which can seat up to 74 delegates.
