Institute of Refrigeration Annual Conference 2016

Edinburgh was proud to host the latest International Institute of Refrigeration Gustav Lorentzen Conference on Natural Working Fluids. The event took place on the 21st – 24th August 2016 at the Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh.

I would like to say that I found Marketing Edinburgh a fantastic resource when I was arranging the conference in August. Both of my evening venues were found using recommendations made by your organisation and the accommodation service  was great. Edinburgh is a fantastic location and all the venues I used were professional and so easy to work with. If plans change and we launch an event that would be suitable to be placed in Edinburgh I will be in touch".

Aquaculture Europe 2016

Aquaculture Europe 2016 (AE2016) took place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) at the end of September 2016. It featured a scientific conference, an international trade event, special sessions for aquaculture producers and satellite workshops and events.

This is the first Aquaculture Europe event ever to take place in the UK and in Scotland in particular and we are very happy with the proposed theme on blue biotechnology, coming 10 years after a very successful AE event in Barcelona on the same theme. Our partners in Scotland will be able to mobilise the sector there and beyond and we are sure that AE2016 will be very well attended – both for its content and for its location”.

 “…a very strong proposal that mixed well the attributes of Edinburgh, the status and potential of aquaculture and blue biotechnology in Scotland and the strong support of the Scottish Government for this event”.

Kjell Maroni, EAS 2012-2014 President, expressing the satisfaction of the Board of Directors
