We take the stress out of finding your accommodation, so everyone gets a good night's sleep!
Edinburgh is ideal for conferences, with ample accommodation within walking distance of the city centre and most of the venues. Delegates may choose from luxurious international hotels, stylish boutique properties or excellent budget accommodation.
Our Conference Accommodation Booking Service (CABS) is an online service fully managed by our dedicated accommodation team and is one of the free services we offer to our clients and their delegates.
Working with the client, appropriate bedroom allocations and rates are negotiated with our member accommodation providers. These allocations are then available to delegates through a customised booking facility which is unique to each conference and which is accessed from the conference website.
On your behalf, our CABS team will
- negotiate best available group rates
- require no deposits for individual bookings and no financial guarantees from clients
- provide a free on-line conference accommodation booking service
- be available to handle delegate enquiries by telephone and email
- have extensive local knowledge and good working relationships with hotels
- gather allocations according to anticipated delegate requirements
NB: Edinburgh's hotel rates normally include a full Scottish breakfast and VAT.
There are no attrition charges or additional taxes in Edinburgh.
In 2010/11 our CABS team handled the accommodation needs of 60+ meetings, with attendee numbers of up to 1,200 delegates and generating bookings for our accommodation members to the value of £1.5m

'The ECB management of the hotel reservations was very much appreciated, by me and those participating! The professional service offered by you and your team is most impressive and certainly a great benefit to Convention Organisers. Your patience and support during the 'demanding' periods was very much appreciated.' Tricia Appleford, Society of British Aerospace Companies
