Welcome to Edinburgh: A City of Inspiration

When it comes to inspirational cities, few can rival the enchanting allure of Edinburgh. Nestled against the backdrop of UNESCO World Heritage architecture and offering world-class entertainment, Edinburgh stands as a testament to the perfect blend of history, culture, and modern vibrancy. As you plan your visit to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), we invite you to explore the rich tapestry of experiences that this breathtaking city has to offer.

Discover Edinburgh's Charm: A UNESCO World Heritage City

Edinburgh's cityscape is a mesmerizing journey through time. The juxtaposition of medieval and neoclassical architecture, including the iconic Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, makes it a truly unique destination. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the Old Town, where history comes alive in every narrow close and hidden courtyard. The New Town, with its Georgian grandeur, adds a touch of sophistication to the city's landscape.

World-Class Entertainment at Your Doorstep

Beyond its historic charm, Edinburgh is a hub of cultural richness and entertainment. The city hosts a year-round calendar of events, including the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and the International Book Festival. Immerse yourself in the vibrant arts scene, where theatres, galleries, and live music venues showcase the best of global and local talent. What’s on at the EICC.

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.
