Drink Beer, Give Water. That is the core mission of Alan Mahon and Josh Littlejohn’s social enterprise craft beer - Brewgooder. The team behind Edinburgh’s popular SocialBite, are doing their part to bring clean water to those who need it most. For every Brewgooder Lager sold all of the profits go towards projects in developing countries.

For the fourth year running, Informatics Ventures, chose Assembly Rooms Edinburgh for its flagship Engage Invest Exploit (EIE) event, Scotland’s largest investor showcase. With its capacity to host a large exhibition and a conference simultaneously in separate rooms, the venue was ideal for the 600+ early stage start-ups, investors & guests who took part in the event.

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! 

Appointment Business Development Manager Anna Murricane

Assembly Rooms Edinburgh has appointed Anna Murricane as Business Development Manager. The Edinburgh Cultural Venues position also covers city landmarks the Usher Hall, Ross Bandstand and Church Hill Theatre. 

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!

Five local caterers have been chosen to join the City of Edinburgh Council-owned Assembly Rooms’ preferred catering panel, following a rigorous tender process.

Appetite Direct, Edinburgh First, Heritage Portfolio, Hickory and Prestige Venues & Events have been carefully selected to cater the diverse range of events which the George Street venue hosts, from conferences and exhibitions to weddings and performances, from July 2016.

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.

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.

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.

We are continuing our ‘Meet the Team’ series for the Assembly Rooms e-zine and this time it is the turn of our Production Manager, Ruari Cormack.
