Last week a number of key clients were hosted by Edinburgh Convention Bureau and Hopetoun House at an evening of laser clay shooting, archery and a ‘Murder Mystery’ in the house.
Held 2-3 times a year, these events gather those who have the propensity to bring major conferences to the city by showcasing various venues and facilities in and around the city. They are professionals in their specific fields of science and medicine for example and are usually in an influential position in their respective organisations to help bring their annual conference to Edinburgh, many of which are international.
The Edinburgh Convention Bureau has run this programme over many years and has proved enormously successful in bringing events that may otherwise have been held elsewhere. Such events have been worth millions over the years in economic benefit to the city.
