backdrop to the towering grace of the capital. This is
a historic setting, with castles, great houses and miles
of glorious coastline. It's also the ancient home of the

parkland courses of the world here. But trails and parkland

Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC)
The Edinburgh International Conference Centre
(EICC) has been designed not only to provide the finest
facilities but also to create the perfect environment
for a successful and productive event. The striking
circular design of the Centre has made it one of Edinburgh's
most distinctive landmarks. As you would expect from
a world-class venue, the technical, presentation and
communications facilities are modern, efficient and
adaptable. The ambience is international but occasional
Scottish touches will remind you of your unique surroundings.
The Meeting will focus in the Pentland Suite, which
has raked seating for up to 1200. The flat-floored Lomond
suite with its 600-capacity is perfect for parallel
sessions and workshops. The exhibition will be displayed
in the Cromdale Hall.
