Our beautiful city is a vibrant destination for conferences and events
Choose Edinburgh for your event and you know your delegates will leave with incredible memories. Edinburgh Castle is arguably one of the world's most famous buildings and is backdrop to the city's spectacular New Year and Festival fireworks. The city's choice of world-class museums and galleries is remarkable, providing wonderful options for your social programme.
Edinburgh is renowned for inspiration and innovation. For centuries it has nurtured some of the greatest minds in philosophy, economics, finance, literature, law, medicine, engineering and architecture. Often referred to as the ‘Festival City’, Edinburgh offers a year-round programme of arts and cultural events.
Edinburgh Airport is just 20 minutes from the city centre and has connections to 130 worldwide destinations. Rail links to the city run all over the UK, with more than 20 daily trains running between Edinburgh and London, taking just over four hours.
Once in Edinburgh, travelling around our compact, walkable city could not be easier, with buses, trams and taxis in plentiful supply. The EICC is right in the heart of Edinburgh and a short walk from a great selection of hotels and attractions.
