When the EICC was built in 1995, it became the first conference venue in the world to utilise revolving auditoria to optimise events space.
The Lennox Suite has the world’s first hall-wide tension wire grid and moving floor combination designed to deliver an array of different event set ups.
Since opening in 1995 the EICC has welcomed 1.3 million delegates from more than 120 countries generating £545m of economic impact for the city region. 66% of EICC’s clients are repeat customers.
Many delegates return to Edinburgh and Scotland as leisure tourists with their families and friends.
Visitor accommodation in Edinburgh and the surrounding area provides more than 20,000 beds, with over 50% within a 2km radius of the EICC.
Edinburgh has more restaurants per head than any other UK city - and it has more Michelin star restaurants than any other city outside London.
Edinburgh Airport is Scotland's busiest airport with more than 40 airlines serving 120 worldwide destinations in 33 countries and 4 continents.
