The University of Edinburgh Conferences and Events

The University of Edinburgh Conferences and Events team delivers superb conference, meeting and catering facilities across the University’s wide range of prestigious venues. It is obviously important that every opportunity is taken to increase the profile of the University and its facilities; and all surpluses from operations are returned to the University for re-investment.

There are many options available and we have something to suit pretty much all types and sizes of event; so for great choice, great value and great service please visit our website.
