The lowdown
The EICC has several adaptable suites and halls to choose from, including the 1,200-seat Pentland Suite and the 850-capacity Strathblane Hall, complemented by 15 additional breakout rooms. Recent events to be held at the venue include the Scottish Green Energy Awards and pensions industry event NAPF 2015.

What's new?
The 2,000-capacity Lennox Suite was officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal in January, doubling the venue's event space.

Stand-out feature
The EICC can match any corporate colour palate using advanced RGB LED lighting, both in interior spaces and on exterior facades.

Buyer verdict
Renewables UK director of events, marketing and memberships, Gareth Halliday, says: "EICC gave us the opportunity to have our Wave and Tidal 2015 conference and exhibition co-located and our delegates really benefited from that. The staff were also outstanding and showed a really high level of engagement with our delegates."
