Introducing Edinburgh


City of innovation Anaesthetics, chloroform, antiseptic, astrophysics and Dolly the cloned sheep – just a few examples of innovation and invention associated with Edinburgh and its environs over the centuries. The city region has nurtured some of the world’s leading doctors, scientists, lawyers, engineers, architects and philosophers – and it continues to do just that. It boasts many centres of excellence that attract some of the world’s sharpest and most creative minds.

Science and technology World-renowned research institutes and universities combine to give Edinburgh its well-deserved global influence in many disciplines, including informatics, micro- and opto-electronics, energy, renewables, cleantech, electronics and life sciences. It is an acknowledged leader in technology convergence. The University of Edinburgh is ranked among the top in Europe, alongside Cambridge, Oxford and three in London.

Across the Edinburgh Science Triangle, there has been significant benefit from public sector investment resulting in: Edinburgh BioQuarter, a landmark £600m life sciences research and commercialisation development; the £42m purpose-built Informatics Forum at the University of Edinburgh; the new £60m Roslin Institute building and the University’s new Vet School at Easter Bush, one of the leading groups in the world focused on the biology and health of companion and production animals. 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 Impressive facilities With a series of innovative and flexible spaces to choose from, the EICC’s facilities include: • The spectacular raked-seated Pentland Suite, which offers great flexibility by sub-dividing into three separate auditoria in less than 4 minutes. • The unique Lennox Suite, which features moving-floor technology, allowing the space to transform from a flat-floored hall into arena, tiered cabaret or raked auditorium modes for up to 2,000 delegates. • The flexible Cromdale Hall, which can be used for exhibitions or set for a stunning banquet for 850 guests. • The Strathblane Hall and Atrium – two light and spacious reception areas which can be used together or separately. The EICC is a short walk from a wide variety of excellent hotels and being in the centre of a compact city means that delegates can fully enjoy Edinburgh’s many attractions. Edinburgh has one of the UK’s fastest growing airports with 40 airlines connecting from 100 destinations worldwide. The Airport is just 7 miles away from the EICC and can be reached by frequent tram and bus links, or by taxi. For those travelling by train, Edinburgh’s Waverley Station is just a few minutes away by taxi and Haymarket Station can be reached in 5 minutes on foot.

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.

Contact details and venue facts The Caves 8-12 Niddry Street South, Edinburgh, EH1 1NS t 0131 557 8989 e lisa@thecavesedinburgh.com w www.thecavesedinburgh.com Contact Lisa Rowan-Harney, Head of Events

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.

The Rowantree The Rowantree 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. This romantic venue 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 the rumoured hunting ground of Burke and Hare, to the spiritual home of the Oyster Club of the Scottish Enlightenment, The Rowantree, was originally home to the renowned Lucky Middlemiss Tavern, an oyster tavern of the Scottish Enlightenment era that saw literary greats and Enlightenment figures throng the watering hole. James Hutton, Robert

Burns, David Hume, Adam smith, Deacon Brodie, Watt and Benjamin Franklin were just some of the regulars, with Robert Louis Stevenson once describing it as “a rabbit warren not only by the numbers of its twist and turns, but by its dark stairs frequented by loiterers and such other such low characters and as treacherous a place as I saw.”

Everyone has a camera these days so why do you even need to hire a professional photographer? There are several good reasons why you should but fundamentally a professional photographer will devote all their attention to getting the great photographs that truly capture your event.

Providing professional photography services to conference, meeting and event organisers at national and international events in Edinburgh, and Scotland is both varied and rewarding.

Exclusive tailor-made tours for groups. From day trips to extended tours, large conference and special interest groups to event support and transfer we can help! We’ll plan your itinerary & arrange visits using local guides to help you get the most of your time in Scotland.

Mercat Present an evening of immense entertainment. Mercat Presents provide dynamic, tailored entertainment services captivating guests – promising a unique, memorable experience. History is brought to life with our range of services.

Having an eye for the little details helps me tell the story of your conference and helps you set the visual agenda for your event on social media. While it’s amazing what you can achieve with phones these days, they can struggle sometimes in the difficult lighting you find at conferences. That’s when a professional photographer can make a big difference. I am very experienced in photographing live events. I am equally comfortable setting up more formal, posed photographs of key speakers or groups. If at all possible it is good to meet beforehand to discuss detailed requirements and talk through some of the possibilities for taking great pictures of the event. I am a qualified member of the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography).

www.meetingedinburgh.com

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. 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.

We take care of all the logistics: tour routes, accommodation bookings, ferries, meals and activities etc. With a custom-built fleet of vehicles, fully trained local guides and the back up of our professional reservations team you can relax and enjoy your time in Scotland. We can organise airport transfers, incentive trips, team building weekends and day tours. Our scheduled Highland tours are ideal for conference delegates and their partners to take during any free time. From Castles to Ceilidh’s, Whisky Tours to Highland Games, we’re passionate about bringing you the real Scotland making your experience an unforgettable one.

The Gateway Restaurant seasonal menus and relaxed service perfectly complement the award winning architecture and stunning views of the Botanic Garden.

This uniquely elegant restaurant has been serving ‘famously fine’ Indian cuisine to the discerning visitors to the Capital for the last 28 years. We are proud to offer our customers real choice in their dining options.

‘A stunning mix of opulence, grandeur and comfort.’ Scotland on Sunday

‘Uniquely for a museum this has become the hottest table in Edinburgh.’ AA Gill, Sunday Times

The tables in our restaurant were designed and created by local furniture designer Ben Dawson, their unusual design is enhanced by the fact they are made from Beech, Oak, Ash or Sycamore sourced within Scotland. The restaurant is hardly noticeably separated from the outside Garden by a 30 metre long wall of glass complete with french doors opening out onto a lovely decked area. The decking offers alfresco seating for additional visitors during the day while providing a superb outdoor covered space for evening barbecues and other events all year round overlooking the Biodiversity Garden. The restaurant opens daily for breakfast at 10am with lunches served from midday and a sumptuous afternoon tea is available from 2.30pm daily. All our food is prepared fresh on the premises by our kitchen team led by Ben Harrison and served to your table. Our menus created by Ben, make full use of the produce available on our doorstep with Red Tractor accredited meat products from across Scotland, seafood from around the Scottish coast and fresh berries in the Summer from Perthshire.

11 Brasserie @ No 11 is located within the discreet luxury of a historically significant, Edinburgh Georgian Town House. This award winning restaurant displays a menu that exhibits some of Scotland’s finest produce, infused with flavours that reflect Scotland’s stunning natural landscape There can be no better local dining experience.

Business meeting over lunch, early-morning brunch or a delicious meal at the end of the day, our £0.5m award-winning restaurant overlooking Arthur’s Seat is the perfect environment. Our exciting new dining concept combines simple classic Scottish dishes in a relaxed, flexible and friendly environment. Using only the finest ingredients, sourced locally where possible, Acanthus is one of the most exciting new restaurants in Edinburgh.

Sample a true ‘Taste of Scotland’ at our home on the lower ground floor of The Royal Mile’s ‘Scotch Whisky Experience’. Amber serves everything from morning coffee and artisan baking to a full three course dinner in a modern and innovative style with our ‘Scottish Tapas’ a highlight. Our Whisky Bar offers a selection of over 380 whiskies. Beautiful settings, atmospheric lighting and attentive yet unobtrusive service are sure to delight you and your guests. The Amber restaurant is available for private dining.

The Atholl started life as a private dining room for guests staying at the hotel. Its elegant, flower-filled Georgian setting, intimate atmosphere, fine wine list and expertly prepared modern Scottish menu drew an enthusiastic and knowledgeable local clientele as well, so the Atholl has gradually evolved into a much sought-after restaurant in Edinburgh. The Atholl only seats 14 people at a time, so be sure to reserve in advance. The restaurant is open daily for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and also available for private dining.

The cuisine at our restaurant in Edinburgh is natural, fresh and often organic, with ingredients farmed, caught, raised or bred in Scotland. Our beef has been raised in a traditional and sustainable manner in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands, our rare-breed pork and lamb are organically farmed in the rolling hills of the Scottish borders and our fish is from the Highland lochs and North Sea. With over 25 Scotch whisky blends and single malts, our bar also focuses on local flavours.

Set in a quiet leafy crescent, a stone throw away from the main attractions the Restaurant at the Bonham is characterised by sophisticated urban styling which we think you will love, whether it’s business or pleasure that brings you here. Aside from some striking and dramatic art work by Tilo Stengel, we’ve designed the restaurant to be cool and minimal so that you can focus on the food, the company and the occasion. The menu is inspired by classic flavours adapted for the modern palate.
