Better events, better for the planet

We consider it both a moral and business imperative to place sustainability at the heart of every event we host, at every step of the process there are inherent adverse impacts. Our sustainability programme, Step Change, focuses on three equally significant, interconnected areas of impact: environmental, societal, and economic. 

The whole event was a huge success that everyone thoroughly enjoyed and this was only achieved by all of your efforts and attention to detail both before the event and on the night.

The EICC is first-class in terms of the IT backbone infrastructure. All of the staff we’ve worked with have been fantastic. The organisation and the support, both in the lead up to and during the conference, have all been top notch.

Just based on the dramatic increase in numbers this year, I think it's clear that Edinburgh was a major draw.
