Edinburgh International Conference Centre

The Edinburgh International Conference Centre, or EICC for short, is the principal convention and conference centre in Edinburgh, Scotland.


The centre is at the heart of the masterplanned Exchange District in the west end of the city, and was designed by the architect Sir Terry Farrell.

Construction on the EICC began in March 1993 and the centre opened in 1995. It caters to around 200,000 delegates every year and generates in excess of £60m in revenue for the City of Edinburgh.

Notable events

In 1999 the annual General Assembly of the Church of Scotland was held in the EICC. The Church's Assembly Hall was being used by the Scottish Parliament at the time.

In 1997 the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) was held in the EICC.
