Congratulations on considering Edinburgh for your event! It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world and a truly inspiring conference destination. An Inspired Choice.


History towers above you. The castle clings to its rock and in its shadow the ancient buildings at the top of the Old Town ramble down the spine of the Royal Mile to the splendid Palace of Holyroodhouse. Across the green expanse of Princes Street gardens lies the elegant Georgian New Town, teeming with shops and restaurants. A year-round programme of arts and festivals, music concerts, theatre and dance, fabulous art collections, fascinating museums and many green, leafy parks and gardens.

Home of the Scottish Parliament, the Scottish Executive and many international headquarters of banks and financial institutions, it also leads the way in law, commerce and information technology. For hundreds of years, Edinburgh’s universities have fostered academic excellence in many fields, and it currently leads in research in everything from political economy and medicine to micro-engineering, life sciences and artificial intelligence.

Edinburgh’s compact city centre makes it an ideal city for strolling around. With Edinburgh Castle as your compass, you will find many of the city’s conference facilities within walking distance of the principal hotels. Venues in the surrounding area are quickly and easily accessible.
