Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is among most beautiful European capital cities. From NATO to MTV Europe, Edinburgh is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that attracts diverse audiences. The city’s exhibition and conference facilities integrate history and old-world charm with state-of-the-art venues. Trade show and event managers will appreciate the diversity of venues for conventions or product launches. What other cities can boast a castle that hosted a Rod Stewart concert? The city centre enables attendees to enjoy all that Edinburgh has to offer from Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, and Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Getting into and around Edinburgh is easy. Transatlantic flights, as well as European carriers, provide service to Edinburgh. The airport is six miles west of city centre and can be accessed via taxi or Airlink Express Bus service. The compact city centre is convenient for walking, local bus or taxi service. Electrical current is 50Hz 230 volts but don’t forget plug adapters for laptops and transformers for demonstration equipment.  For more information about travel in Edinburgh visit Scotland's National Tourism Organisation and the Edinburgh Airport website. 

Special event and exhibition managers have diverse venues to choose from in Edinburgh. The award-winning Edinburgh International Conference Centre is centrally located in the city with exhibition areas, a 1200-seat auditorium, and expandable meeting rooms. The Edinburgh City Chambers is a unique small conference venue for seminars, workshops, and special events.
