EICC - Edinburgh International Conference Centre

Situated at the heart of Scotland's beautiful capital city, the EICC is one of the world's outstanding venues for conferences and events. EICC Ltd was formed in the early nineties as a joint venture between Edinburgh District Council and Lothian & Edinburgh Enterprise, it was to be part of the Edinburgh Exchange Masterplan – the biggest urban regeneration scheme outside London at the time.
When it was built in 1995, the EICC became the first conference venue in the world to utilise revolving auditoria to optimise events space. Since opening it has welcomed around 1.5 million delegates from more than 120 countries generating around £720m of economic impact for the city region.
The EICC remains under the ownership of the City of Edinburgh Council and operates as an independent commercial venture.
