John McIntyre Conference Centre

John McIntyre Conference Centre

After outgrowing our London venue and in search of an exciting city that will help us preserve the value of the event, we relocated to the John McIntyre Conference Centre in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city.

Conveniently located for all major transport links, the Centre also offered state-of-the-art technical capabilities for our participants, who could take five on the open-air terrace overlooking Arthur's Seat.

Participants will enjoy excellent catering thanks to the centre’s Good Food For All local supply policy, promoting the finest in Scottish food and drink. Accommodation is available on site (more details below) which makes any visit to the event and the city easy, convenient and enjoyable. It also means we can provide more social activities to entertain participants in the evening.

The Centre also has accessibility information available via AccessAble.
