Edinburgh offers a wide range of wonderful places to stay. We are in the process of making arrangements with a number of excellent, reasonably-priced hotels in the vicinity of the EICC, all offering special rates for delegates attending the Congress.  While we would strongly recommend the hotels we’ve chosen, delegates are of course free to make their own arrangements.  More information shortly!


In June, the climate is mild, with average temperatures of 13C. However, the weather can be variable, so layers are advisable, and a rain jacket can be useful.


Sterling is used in Edinburgh – units are pounds and pence. All major credit cards are widely accepted. Banknotes issued from both Scottish and UK banks are accepted.


In the event of industrial disruption, the meeting organisers cannot be held responsible for any losses incurred by delegates. The programme will be correct at the time of printing. The organisers reserve the right to alter the programme as necessary.


There are a number of car parks in close walking distance to the EICC. Suggestions include:
