Juliet Simpson, managing director of Stripe Communications, added: “Glasgow has a fantastic story to tell this festive season – more partners than ever before joining the campaign and a really strong shopping and entertainment offering. We’ll be spreading the word that Glasgow is the place to be this Christmas through a proactive PR programme.”
