Edinburgh beast Abu Dhabi, London to top industry award

The Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) won the hotly-contested industry award for ‘Best Conference Venue for over 900 Delegates’ at the 7th annual Conference Awards at Tobacco Dock, London on Friday 1st July.  Scotland’s leading conference venue beat off competition from some of the world’s top venues - including the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre and ExCeL London, to land the award for the first time.  

 

 

The judging panel for the awards said: “The EICC has shown great innovation and flexibility - the team has an agile approach which enables them to respond with creative solutions to any challenges that the clients might have.”

 

 

Marshall Dallas, the EICC’s Chief Executive, said: Marshall Dallas, the EICC’s Chief Executive, said: “When you look at some of the names we were up against this year, it’s a definite sign of how far we have progressed as a team and as a venue over the last 24 months. 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 who make up this amazing team we have here at EICC. 


 

The EICC experienced its busiest year in 2015 hosting 139 business events for the corporate and association markets.  Highlights in the 2015 calendar included HRH The Princess Royal officially opening the Lennox Suite in January and George Clooney attending the UK’s largest business dinner ever in November when over 2,000 people dined alongside some of the biggest names in British business and entertainment in the heart of Edinburgh.

 

  • About EICC - opened in 1995, the remit of the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) is to drive economic impact to the city and to date has helped to deliver around £500 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. Edinburgh is the highest ranked UK conference destination outside London according to leading global industry body, the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA).

  • About Lennox Suite - the multi-purpose Lennox Suite was opened in May 2013.  The Suite is the key part of a £35 million expansion at the EICC which focused on adding industry-leading technology and functionality, the expanded space features moving floor technology which can be easily configured to 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.
