Edinburgh as a Conference Venue

One of the UK’s most iconic skylines is that of Edinburgh, the hilly capital of Scotland with a population of around half a million people. The city’s economy is based largely around the financial sector, with the Bank of Scotland and the Royal Bank of Scotland both present there, along with Scottish Widows, Standard Life and a number of other financial institutions.

Scotland’s capital has its fair share of business venues, including Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue and The Hub, another location for conferences and meetings. Edinburgh city centre conference venues are a stone’s throw from the Scottish Parliament, the University of Edinburgh, and the Scottish National Gallery – a melting pot of political and cultural establishments that help to symbolise the significance of the city as a whole.

Domestic and international tourism are key contributors to local prosperity too, with Edinburgh ranking second only to London among UK cities with the most international tourist visitors, with thanks to both the Old Town and New Town listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Landmarks like Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace are to be found in the city, along with Edinburgh’s striking geography, with many of its most famous landmarks overlooking the city from hilltop locations – it’s a much loved and enduring destination for business and leisure travellers alike.

Connections to Edinburgh

Waverley and nearby Haymarket are the main railway stations, with the M8 motorway providing the main road link west to Glasgow, and the A1 tracing a route close to the east coast of Scotland and south into England. With Scotland’s busiest airport handling more than 12 million domestic and international passengers each year, Edinburgh is as well connected as you would expect of any capital city – making it an excellent choice of location for any Scottish business event.

I haven’t thanked you for all the help you provided, which is very remiss of me. You were great – thank you! The hotel that we booked through you was really good – we had some teething problems at our first weekend, but they were very responsive in dealing with these for the second. We would gladly work with them again.
