As Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh is an increasingly popular destination for hosting business meetings. The city offers a diverse mix of culture, heritage and leisure activities, alongside wonderful shopping and dining opportunities. It’s quickly become a global meeting and conference destination, hosting numerous events each year.

And the good news is that there are lots of meeting rooms Edinburgh based, making Edinburgh is an obvious choice for businesses to host their meetings and events, here are just a few reasons why.

Excellent transport links

Location is everything after all. You need to make sure that your venue is accessible to everyone attending. And Edinburgh has a great transport network. In fact, Edinburgh Airport is just 8 miles from the centre of the city. It boasts great connections with the rest of the world, making it easy for your delegates to travel here. In fact, it’s the third largest airport in the UK for passenger numbers, serving millions of passengers every year. The city also has great road and rail links too. And you’ll soon find that its compact city centre means almost everything is within walking distance.

World-class accommodation

The city is bursting with quality accommodation. From luxury 5-star hotels, stylish boutique hotels and chic serviced apartments, to contemporary university campuses, Edinburgh caters for all budgets. And wherever you stay, you can enjoy your time in a clean and safe city.

Unique and inspiring venues

When arranging your business meeting here, you’ll feel spoiled for choice with the variety of meeting and conference venues available. Choose from traditional and purpose-built conference facilities to the more unique venues, which can even include castles, galleries and museums. And it doesn’t matter whether you’re planning a large meeting with international guests, or a small intimate occasion. The city is home to venues of all sizes. But not surprisingly, the venues become booked up quickly. So, try to book your meeting spaces as early as possible. 

Enjoy a delicious taste of Scotland

You’ll find that the city’s venues provide a wonderful array of food and refreshments for your meetings. And when it comes to entertaining your guests, Edinburgh has it all. In fact, Scotland’s restaurants serve some of the finest natural produce in the world. Dine at one of Edinburgh’s award-winning restaurants, before heading to one of its lively bars. Here you can enjoy a locally brewed beer, a hand-crafted cocktail, or relax with a smooth malt whisky.

Whatever the size and scope of your event, planning your next business meeting or conference in Edinburgh will open the door to a host of exciting and inspiring opportunities, while guaranteeing you and your guests a warm welcome.
