Choosing your conference venue in Edinburgh relies upon a number of things. Firstly, you need your venue to be easily accessible. Edinburgh makes the ideal location for your event for a number or geographical reasons. It is the capital city of Scotland and the seventh largest city in the UK, therefore its transport links via road and rail network are some of the best in the UK. The heart of Edinburgh is likely to be the best location for your Edinburgh conference centre as public transport, road and airport links are best here. The old town is also very attractive and has plenty of attractions and accommodation for guests who will be staying overnight.

Access to Edinburgh city centre from further afield is easy, due to the A1, M8 and M9, and ensure that your location is within walking distance of a train station. It even has its own airport, ideal for conferencing with international guests or for delegates flying from elsewhere in the UK to Edinburgh. Ensure that your conference venue in Edinburgh has adequate car parking for guests who are travelling by car, so look for nearby multi story car parks. Some Edinburgh conference centres even offer a discount on parking costs for guests. Another important factor when choosing your conference venue in Edinburgh is room comfort.

It may help to choose a building with a choice of conference rooms to find the perfect setting for your event. Ensure the rooms are quiet, preferably with soundproofing, and have natural daylight and high ceilings. If you are planning a presentation or video look for a room with blackout blinds. You may also require equipment from your Edinburgh conference centre. If you require a projector, whiteboard, fast internet access, computers, computer networks or visual and audio aids, ask your venue. You should also enquire about technical support; there is nothing worse than having the right equipment with technological problems jeopardising your conference.

Providing delegates with refreshments is also important. A venue should provide coffee and biscuits included in the price, but check this is the case. An on-site restaurant or cafe is also an advantage. You may also wish to consider facilities such as break-out rooms, water dispensers and how environmentally friendly your location is. Finally, booking a venue with an on-side events planning team will take some of the stress away from planning your event and ensure things go smoothly at your conference venue in Edinburgh.
