Clive Carter, 35, was jailed for a minimum of 20 years on Tuesday for murdering Khanokporn Satjawat with a fire extinguisher in a toilet at the Clyde Auditorium on Nov 12, 2012, where the 42-year-old Thai was attending a conference on HIV drug therapy, the BBC reported.
The former G4S security guard at the venue denied the charges but the court was not convinced, it added.
He was also found guilty of covering up the murder and telling police a lie by claiming that he had seen an Asian man carrying an extinguisher after the killing.
Khanokporn's blood was found on his trousers and shirt, according to the trial.
"Khanokporn Satjawat was a hard-working, well-educated and dedicated lady who came to this country to participate in a conference whose purpose was the alleviation of suffering and the saving of lives,'' BBC quoted judge Lord Matthews as saying.
