You’ve never held an event in Scotland or it’s been a while.  So where do you start?

Anyone looking for a conference destination that has it all needs look no further than Scotland which offers an immense and diverse range of venues and accommodation. Purpose-built conference centres in all major cities, combined with academic venues that offer a wide range of facilities plus accommodation options to suit every budget, make planning an event simply a question of choice.  

Scottish venues and providers are continually stepping up to the mark with refurbishments, new openings and products all over the country. Some exciting recent and upcoming openings include the striking V&A Design Museum in Dundee, the newly launched luxurious ‘boatique’ hotel Fingal, berthed near the Royal Yacht Britannia, as well as the imminent opening of TECA – The Event Complex Aberdeen – which will transform the conference and events offering in the region.

By choosing Scotland, you can sign up for a host of active and challenging incentive experiences, teambuilding events and company away days. The country’s destination management, event companies and activity providers organise unique corporate activities where both business and enjoying Scotland’s wilderness can go hand-in-hand. 


With venues that include castles and historic locations, and activities that can be as gentle as whisky tasting or as wild as white water rafting, there is no doubt that Scotland has something to suit every taste and every event.

Pioneering innovation is in Scotland’s soul. We have a legacy of invention, research and knowledge that continues to this day. Scotland is a place where the opportunities to enrich your event are plentiful, where your delegates can collaborate in the home of innovation, where your ideas can become legend. Scotland’s key industry sectors including Life Sciences, Energy, FinTech, Marine and Digital can also add an extra dimension to your client events, generating new conversations and ideas.
