Some of the world’s leading athletes will descend on Glasgow’s Emirates Arena between 1-3 March as the Championships return to the iconic city for the first time since 1990. There will be 650 athletes from more than 45 nations setting their sights on glory.
Baillie Signs will play a key role for Glasgow 2019, as it provides field of play sponsor branding, trackside boards and wayfinding signage across the venue and official hotels.
