Edinburgh First's conference and meeting venue features a 330-seat plenary room that can be configured to suit your needs, plus four meeting rooms, two executive boardrooms, a lounge and bar.

Once delegates have arrived at the conference centre they can make use of the spacious foyer, an ideal area for networking and catering. The main 330-seat room can be configured to meet most conference needs with the flexibility of being able to split into two, perfect for parallel sessions. Organisers can make use of the four additional break out rooms for workshops and presentations. The conference centre also boasts two outdoor terrace areas where delegates can refresh and re-energise throughout the day.

Delegates and organisers alike can enjoy use of 18 recently installed electric car charging points and limited on-site parking. Parking on-site is secure with a manned barrier providing both security and information to delegates upon arrival.

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible and all rooms, break out areas and refreshment areas are located on one floor, making organisation throughout the day easier for all.

What really sets this venue apart is the location. Nestled in landscaped gardens a stones throw from Arthurs Seat, delegates can enjoy views of this famous Scottish landmark from the terrace area or take a stroll to the foot of the hill in under five minutes. Year-round accommodation is also located on-site within the secured grounds meaning delegates arriving from all corners of the world can enjoy a stroll through our gardens to the venue in just a minute or two after a restful sleep at our hotel.
