Edinburgh First’s event management service turns your detailed requirements into one seamless and effective package, designed specifically for your conference.

We can create, manage and deliver a smooth, one-stop-shop service which streamlines the experience for your delegates and removes the heavy administrative burden in organising conferences … giving you the time to concentrate on the important things.

"Having ran a number of large conferences with Edinburgh First , I’d like to say that the collaborative planning process, logistical advice and support leading up to the conferences was not only fantastic, but vital component to the success of each event. No matter what we throw at you, your event management team, and front of house team, deal with it all in a calm and professional manner.

 We had a power issue during one of our conferences, and the Edinburgh First team managed to quickly and effectively find a solution, allowing the conference to continue without a hitch!

 I have really enjoyed working with the Edinburgh First team (Louise, Cassie, Adele, Stewart and Daniela) and look forward to working with them on many more successful conferences going forward."
