The award-winning Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) can hold up to 2000 delegates, while its luxury hotel offering can accommodate over 5000 guests in some truly unique properties.

The Forum will be held at EICC and accommodation will be organised at the following hotels: Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, The George Hotel, Radisson Blu Edinburgh, G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian.
