Last month we hosted something a bit different., The Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival (EDEF) is the first major festival of its kind dedicated to event cinema and virtual reality, exploring artistic and creative areas which use digital technology in their delivery and development. With expert panels, keynotes, technology demonstrations and cinema showcases we hope you discovered a taste for technology! 

We are delighted to introduce you to Anna our new Business Development Manager for Edinburgh Cultural Venues. Anna's role will see her lead on driving conference and events to the Assembly Rooms and our sister venues, Usher Hall, Ross Bandstand and Church Hill Theatre.

We sat down with our new college and asked her about what attracted her to the role and what makes a great conference and event and get to know about her passion for history!

June has certainly been an entertaining month at the Assembly Rooms. Despite much secrecy and only some last minute promotion there was still a number of noisy fans crowded round the barriers to welcome the X-Factor Judges to Edinburgh.

In March, we were joined by STV who took over the Assembly Rooms music hall to broadcast Scotland's leader's debate live. Read on for more details in our case study with STV.

Edinburgh Festival is just round the corner and this year we are hosting an exciting new festival which brings together the world of arts and entertainment with digital technology curated and presented by the creative people from The London based Riverside Studios.
