Being an Ambassador is rewarding, provides personal and organisational benefits and you get the opportunity to meet many interesting people from a variety of sectors.

The Edinburgh Ambassador Programme is one of the most successful of its kind and our significant support and encouragement means you are never alone. Read what some of our Ambassadors have to say…

5th International Hypothermia Symposium 2014

Once I had spoken to Convention Edinburgh, everything just fell into place. For anybody who is thinking of organising a meeting in Edinburgh, there is a huge amount of support in how to go about the process. There is always somebody there to help you - less than a phone - call away.

Without the support, knowledge and encouragement at the start I might have had cold feet. It has made a big difference.

International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant ICMG 2013

I regularly run meetings for 50-200 people but a meeting of over 1000 was just too big for me to contemplate. Convention Edinburgh took me through the whole process step-by-step. They explained everything from budgeting and registration through to how to wow my delegates at the gala dinner. I went from being terrified to host the conference to being terrified I might NOT host the conference.

International Conference on Neutron Scattering, July 2013

Edinburgh is an experienced conference location, and is an extremely attractive venue for the participants, the majority of whom will come from overseas.  The Edinburgh International Conference Centre is ideally suited for hosting the conference, with upwards of 800 participants expected.

4th European Veterinary Immunology Workshop, September 2012

Convention Edinburgh helped from the outset to bring the conference to the city as an Edinburgh Ambassador. They arranged site visits to venues that met all of our conference needs while staying within the budget we had to work with. They also negotiated hotel rates and created a direct accommodation booking link for delegates via our conference website. It all added to the quality of the meeting and allowed the organizing committee to focus on the science.
