WHAT THE EICC MEANS TO EDINBURGH

The EICC is owned by the City of Edinburgh Council and operates as an independent commercial venture.  With its history, architecture and festivals, Edinburgh has long been popular with tourists but the EICC was planned and built to attract more business visitors to the city and to generate economic impact.

In 2017 we were extremely proud to have our most prolific year yet.  We held 200 events, hosted 94,000 delegates and generated a record-high £55 million in economic impact for the City of Edinburgh.  This brings our total economic contribution, since opening in 1995, to £600 million.

While Edinburgh is the highest ranked UK conference destination outside of London, competition is fierce and Marshall Dallas, CEO is not complacent. His vision includes creating a hub of excellence with training and development at its core. The venue has around 50 full-time staff, but numbers can grow to ten times that during large-scale events.
