Edinburgh Science Triangle is a pioneering collaboration of universities, research institutes, science parks and local councils across Scotland’s historic capital and surrounding area. The main objective is to foster this community, to attract new investment and strengthen the links between academia and business. This dynamic community houses more than 3,000 world-class researchers, over 100 market-leading companies, across more than 370,000 sq m of flexible accommodation. The combined space of the Edinburgh Science Triangle parks places the ‘super campus’ amongst the 20 largest science parks in the world. With eight science and research locations all within 30 minutes of each other and located close to Edinburgh city centre, academic hubs and research institutes – Edinburgh Science Triangle is a major part of Scotland’s vibrant science and technology sector.

Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) Located right in the heart of vibrant Edinburgh the EICC is a magnificent venue for your events Outstanding facilities

The incredible facilities at the EICC include a series of impressive adaptable auditoria, spacious reception areas and flexible event suites, including: • The spectacular 1200 raked-seating Pentland Suite, offering the utmost flexibility by sub-dividing into three separate auditoria, in minutes at the touch-of-a-button • The stunning Cromdale Hall, which provides banqueting for 850 guests or 1185m of exhibition space • The unique new Lennox Suite, which features remarkable movingfloor-technology allowing the space to transform from a flat-floored hall into raked auditorium, arena or tiered cabaret modes • The Strathblane Hall and new Atrium, two light and spacious reception areas which can be used together or separately The EICC is within a short walking distance of a range of excellent hotels, attractions and shopping districts. Being in the centre of a compact city means that the EICC is easily accessible whatever your method of travel. Edinburgh International Airport is just 10km away and can be reached directly from more than 100 UK and worldwide destinations. Opening in 2014, the city’s new tram network provides even greater connections to and from the airport and the city centre. For those travelling by train, Edinburgh’s Waverley Station is minutes away by taxi, and Haymarket Station can be reached in 5 minutes on foot. Speak to the EICC Sales Team on +44 (0)131 300 3333 or visit www.eicc.co.uk for inspirational ideas of what you could do in this incredible space.

The Caves The Caves will wow your guests and guarantee that your event will be a truly memorable experience. The Caves is an intimate and atmospheric cavernous venue nestled in the depths of the 18th century South Bridge in the heart of the Old Town, and a stone’s throw from the famous Royal Mile. The Caves is steeped in colourful history, and every vaulted room that has been sympathetically restored to its former glory has a story to tell and a special place in Scotland’s past. From a former stables to the French Cavalry who were body guards for the Royal Family, the rumoured hunting ground of Burke and Hare, to the spiritual home of the Oyster Club of the Scottish Enlightenment.

Restored original wooden flooring, antique Chesterfields and original artefacts in the upstairs snug bar, old adverts from the 1700s and 1800s transformed into wallpaper, state of the art lighting and sound systems contrasted with atmospheric candles, are just some of the details that has given The Caves its numerous awards.

There is no venue more Edinburgh than The Caves, or more Scottish either if you consider there was once so much Whisky stored here that it became known as “Whisky Row.” Different and unique, distinctive and full of personality, and, most importantly, intimate, this remarkable venue will wow guests.

Marlin’s Wynd Marlin’s Wynd is an intimate and atmospheric cavernous venue nestled in the depths of the 18th century South Bridge in the heart of the Old Town on Blair Street, and a stone’s throw from the famous Royal Mile. Marlin’s Wynd is on the site of the original Marlin’s Wynd which was constructed in the 1540’s. The wynd was believed to be named after John Marlouin, the French stonemason who paved the Royal Mile around 1550. With the Reception area being part of a typical Edinburgh Georgian tenement built in 1787 and its vaults constructed in the 1540’s, Marlin’s Wynd spans centuries of Scottish history.

Founded in 1994, 88 Events has a proven trackrecord in delivering the very best quality events. We can offer a full program of incentive events to show your clients the best of what Scotland has to offer. From bespoke golf days to whisky tastings, team building events in medieval castles to bigbrand product launches and gala dinners. We even made it snow in summer for one event!

Established in 1988 as a sister company of Abbey Tours, Abbey Conference & Events are award winning Professional Conference Organisers.

At All Points North we consider it’s your event so let’s keep it that way. Rather than telling you what you want we’ll take your core brief and build around it to complement your ideas rather than giving you an off the shelf package.

We are here to help you secure all the best services and suppliers you need for your event. Accommodation, the conference venue, AV and technical expertise, dining locations, activity programmes, transfers and much more.

Planning an event is never easy. We know sometimes things don’t always go according to plan so that’s why we’ll work with you to iron out any potential problems before your group arrives.

We are also experts in creating and delivering partner and delegate programmes for conferences, congresses, incentives and corporate groups holding their event anywhere in Scotland.

Because our service is bespoke we’ll give you the product you want, not just the one that fits best. We believe by building your plans from the ground up your experience will not only be better but you’ll get the most out of your trip.

We will help you with the right venue selection, great entertainment options, well thought out partner programmes, unique locations for private dinners and great ideas for pre and post event tours.

With over 25 years experience we are proud to be able to offer our knowledge to support your event.

We will always offer you the best value hotel accommodation based on your budget, even some exclusive private castle accommodation! Plus the most exciting sight-seeing, excursion and activity programmes and all delivered with personal involvement from Andrew and his professional team.

Our experienced team will guide you by maximising your budget at all times including showing you where savings can be made or alternatively where money should be spent. We have built up a wide range of trusted suppliers, covering the whole of the UK events industry. Our inside knowledge enables us to negotiate all contracts, manage sub-contractors and liaise with venues on our clients’ behalf. We are your single point of contact for all your event information.

Conference Support Suppliers

We are a primary player on the National & International conference stage and our quality of service is best demonstrated in our portfolio of International and National association conferences. We have worked with organisations from a wide range of disciplines including scientific, medical, financial, academic, industry and pharmaceutical as well as a number of Government Departments. From an international conference meeting to an intimate bespoke meeting, our role and responsibility is to ensure a high quality service and an efficient strategic planning programme, by doing so we deliver a well organised, successful and highly memorable conference. We aim to achieve this through gaining a full understanding of each organisations needs and priorities and by working in close partnership with the local organising committee for the entire life of the conference.

Supporting Services - Photography Jon Davey Photography 52/6 Bath Street, Edinburgh EH15 1HF t 07805 676192 e contact@jondaveyphotography.co.uk w www.jondaveyphotography.co.uk Contact Jon Davey, Proprietor Everyone has a camera these days so why do you need a professional at your conference? Unlike event organisers or delegates a professional photographer can devote all their attention to getting great photographs of not just speakers and participants, but all the little details that tell the full story of the conference. A professional brings a wealth of experience in knowing just how to get the best images that truly capture your event. Having top quality images to share helps to set the visual agenda for the event on social media, as well as preparing for next year’s printed materials. I am very experienced in photographing live events of all sorts and the ability to take great shots unobtrusively applies just as well to a lecture podium at the EICC as it does to the stage of the Festival Theatre. Whatever your conference stories, let me tell them for you.

Providing professional photography services to conference, meeting and event organisers at national and international events in Edinburgh, and Scotland is both varied and rewarding. You need an experienced photographer who has an eye for seeking out the best shots and someone who will liaise closely with you in order to properly meet your brief. Gaining a full understanding of a client’s requirements and an absolute requirement for reassurance in covering the event, as well as establishing a good rapport, are all my aims. ‘Getting the shots’ at your conference with minimal impact on speakers and the audience is important. Social events are also covered with due respect to guests who are there to network and enjoy themselves. It’s about striking a balance in the photographer achieving your needs with those of your delegates and guests.

We provide outstanding images and a creative, professional service at events in Edinburgh and across Scotland. Our approach to event and conference photography is editorial - we produce a visual story - covering portraits of keynote speakers, location and venue shots as well as interaction between delegates. You’ll receive a portfolio of images which can be used for reports, marketing, press release, and on social media. Commissioning photography for your event is the prefect way to keep a record of your organisations activities and promote them to others, whether to customers, potential new members or sponsors. Our rates are competitive and from our studio in the centre of Edinburgh we’re only a few minutes away from many of the city’s leading venues. Professionally Qualified, through the British Institute of Professional Photographers. (BIPP.com)

Of course the output at the end of the shoot is all important and previous client feedback for Simon Williams Photography is testament to this being achieved and clients booking again for their next event.

The curious nature of single cask, single malt whisky means the tastes are often not characteristic of the region it comes from. We prefer to describe each whisky bottling with its own unique whisky tasting note. Delve into an unparalleled range of single cask bottlings from over 120 distilleries.

Brora is one of Britain’s best-loved and most successful modern cashmere brands. Since its beginning in 1993 Brora has steadily grown into a full-fledged fashion label with its own distinctive viewpoint – wearable, subtle but highly individual, and mainly British-made. Scottish cashmere is still at Brora’s heart, but every season the founder, sole owner, and creative director Victoria Stapleton creates an ever-growing range of clothing to build a complete wardrobe using only the finest fabrics, such as tweed, silk, and wool.

William Cadenhead has a well established pedigree and the experience of over one and a half centuries ensure that our customers can truly rely on what we put in a bottle. We guarantee that we never chill-filter or chemically alter the products that we bottle nor do we add colouring agents. Each of our bottlings of whisky, and indeed of our rums and cognacs, comes from an individually selected cask.

For your visitors who would like to know more about Scotland’s amazing food and drink larder we can create an intimately informal but elegantly presented tasting in the shop to highlight smoked salmon, smoked venison, cheese, oatcakes, a range of chutney, local shortbread and chocolate. Also included are tastes of a wide range of Scottish gin, gin liquors and fruit liquors. We can also set up a stall, filled with our most popular items, that visitors can buy from on the spot, via credit card

Debenhams department store on Edinburgh’s famous Princes Street offers customers an unrivalled choice of designer fashion brands, gifts and premium health and beauty. Additional services include free Wi-Fi, a café and restaurant and a foreign money exchange.
