EICC wins Best Conference Venue for 900-plus delegates

Scotland’s Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) has won ‘Best Conference Venue for over 900 Delegates’ at the 7th annual Conference Awards at Tobacco Dock, London.
The venue beat the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre and ExCeL London to land the award for the first time.  


Marshall Dallas, the EICC’s ceo said: “Industry events such as the Conference Awards are a powerful reflection of how the EICC has become a leading force within the global events market - and that really comes down to the investment we have made in our facilities, our technology and the incredible people here at EICC.”


The EICC experienced its busiest year in 2015, hosting 139 business events for the corporate and association markets.  


The EICC drives economic impact to the city and to date has helped to deliver around GBP500 million to the local economy while hosting over one million delegates and 3,000 conferences.  The EICC is owned by City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) and operates at arm’s length as an independent commercial venture.


In May 2013, the multi-purpose Lennox Suite opened, a key part of a GBP35 million expansion at the EICC that focused on adding industry-leading technology and functionality.


The Lennox Suite has moving floor technology that can be easily configured for multiple set-ups. Options include banqueting or arena mode for 1,400 people or a tiered auditorium for 2,000 people.  


The redevelopment has improved the EICC’s ability to attract even more international conferences to Edinburgh.
