Iconic venues to suit all budgets

Edinburgh First will more than meet your conference, meeting and event needs. Chances are, we'll exceed your expectations too.

As part of the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh First understands better than most the elements necessary for a good debate or an educated discussion. Our venues are among the finest in Edinburgh and can cater to gatherings of all sizes, from a 1,000-strong audience to fine dining for 30.

As well as high-specification conference facilities and business meeting rooms, we offer Edinburgh conference venues featuring comfortable breakout areas and relaxed lounges where delegates can unwind. Edinburgh First's venues at Pollock Halls look onto Arthur's Seat, whilst our centrally located venues offer windows onto some of Edinburgh's most spectacular views, ensuring a memorable occasion.
