Introducing the EICC

Set in the heart of Scotland's historic capital city, the purpose-built EICC (Edinburgh International Conference Centre) is is one of the world's outstanding venues for conferences, conventions and exhibitions.

Offering the very best in facilities and technology and supported by our experienced, enthusiastic team the EICC ensures your event is a truly memorable success.

The Centre's striking circular design provides an extremely flexible and sophisticated venue for congresses, exhibitions, product launches and banquets.

Behind the soaring glass, escalators glide between all levels, from exhibition and banqueting area to the main auditorium, with its spacious stage, raked seating and revolving partitions - the first to be installed in a purpose-built European conference centre.

The bright airy entrance hall is big enough to hold a banquet, as well as to receive delegates, host a cyber cafe and stage exhibitions.

Breakout rooms for subsidiary meetings and workshops and a wide variety of spaces for meetings, seminars and entertaining will give you all the room sizes you could ever wish for.


Everything at the EICC is of the highest quality. The technical presentation and communications facilities are modern, efficient and adaptable and there is easy wheelchair access throughout the building. And of course, the standard of food and drink is superb with our in-house chefs showcasing the best of Scottish produce.

The ambience is international, but occasional Scottish touches and flourishes will remind you of your unique surroundings. Set in the heart of Edinburgh, surrounded by excellent hotels and first class visitor attractions, the EICC is quite simply one of the world's most attractive congress venues. As a result, the Edinburgh International Conference Centre has established a global reputation based on excellent facilities and has a dedicated team of professionals attracted from around the world.

Everyone who organises a congress has different priorities, but there are five key requirements that feature on almost every list: purpose built facilities:

  • High quality setting
  • Advanced communications
  • Presentation technology
  • First class catering
  • Professional support services

Every organiser is familiar with the art of compromise. But at the EICC there is no longer any need to balance facilities against catering or the venue against its surroundings. With the EICC you can simply have the best of everything.


Your delegates will feel at home in Edinburgh. Not just because it is a friendly city but because many will have connections there. Some will know of family links, whilst others will have studied or worked in the city and will welcome the opportunity to return.

As the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh has been a seat of learning and culture since the Middle Ages. For those involved in medicine, science and law, it has many special associations and it is also Britain's second financial centre.

Edinburgh has a strong international reputation for hosting leading events.Each summer the city throws open its doors to the world's biggest arts festival, welcoming thousands of performers and tens of thousands of visitors from just about every nation on earth. And the Edinburgh International Festival and the Festival Fringe are only the biggest and best known events from a list that includes the International Science Festival, the Jazz Festival, the Film Festival and the Military Tattoo.

Edinburgh is a city that does more than entertain, enlighten and intrigue: it seems to cast a spell. A unique combination of heritage, colour and culture, this is a city of quite breathtaking beauty.

Scotland - The Perfect Location

"We know that the experiences of your delegates will last a lifetime."

Edinburgh's position as the Scottish Capital has naturally placed it at the heart of the country's transportation networks - so even a day or so to spare before or after a congress or seminar can be put to the maximum advantage.

There's easy access to the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders, or you could explore the delightful coast of the East Neuk of Fife as far as the university and golfing town of St. Andrews.

Make the short journey to Glasgow to visit the Burrell Collection, or travel on to Ayrshire and Dumfries to follow in the footsteps of Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet.

An express train or an easy drive by car takes you over the famous bridges and beyond the Firth of Forth to Perth, Stirling and all the glories of the Scottish Highlands. There are flights from Edinburgh to Shetland and Orkney and from Glasgow to many of the Western Islands, including Lewis, Barra and Tiree.
