Edinburgh has won three international conferences worth an estimated £4.4m to the local economy. The first of the events will take place at the University of Edinburgh’s commercial division, Edinburgh First in April 2009. It will be run by the Biochemical Society and British Society for Cell Biology and is anticipated to generate £1.15m. The EICC is the venue for the other events – the four-day Congress of the European Society of Gastrointestinal & Abdominal Radiology, and a five-day quantitative genetics conference. Both events are scheduled to take place in 2012. Up to 2,200 delegates are projected to attend the events. Edinburgh Convention Bureau (ECB) assisted the venues’ bids to host the conferences. In addition to those three events, the ECB has helped secure eight other conferences for the city in the past month. The events are anticipated to be worth almost £6.2m to the local economy and will attract 3,450 delegates.
