Edinburgh Ambassadors are academic and business professionals who are experts in their industry sector and, with the support provided by Convention Edinburgh, are willing to lead on a bid to host their association conference in Edinburgh and promote the city as a leading conference destination.

Working together over the last 20 years the Edinburgh Ambassador Programme, Convention Edinburgh and its members have worked tirelessly to generate an impressive £900 million for the local economy, bringing 528,605 delegates to 1,348 events in Edinburgh.  

We could not have achieved this success without the commitment and enthusiasm of our team of over 500 Edinburgh Ambassadors who share a wealth of knowledge and a passion for Scotland’s capital!

We recognise and appreciate the vital contribution provided by our Ambassadors as many conference destinations are chosen by the association committee based on the quality of the local member’s bid presentation.

The Edinburgh Ambassador Programme is the key to delivering a strong bid and we provide support every step of the way. Our services are free, impartial and dedicated to helping you secure your conference for Edinburgh.

To assist local organisers and academics who wish to organise a conference our Ambassador Toolkit is a good place to start.
