UK: Edinburgh Eyes Boost From World Congress Events

edinburghEdinburgh's economy is set for an £8 million boost after securing a trio of international conference wins.

Led by Marketing Edinburgh’s convention bureau and host venue the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), the successful partnership bid wins are expected to attract more than 4,000 international delegates to the city.

Edinburgh will host the British Neuroscience Association’s Festival of Neuroscience on 12-15 April 2015, the World Congress of Bioethics in June 2016 and the International Neuromodulation Society World Congress in June 2017.
