Our events team has, as ever, been staying up to date with the latest trends in the market to help you stage the best event possible. So every quarter we will look at a different aspect of conference and event management, give you our thoughts and a few tips to help your events shine.

We have an amazing team here at the Assembly Rooms all of whom we are very proud of. So we thought you should get to know them. Every quarter we will introduce you to another vital member of our team. First up is John-Paul Valentine.

Not that I want to speak to soon but the winter weather seems to be on its way out and spring is definitely in the air which means there are lots of great events to look forward to in the coming months. However I wanted to start with a bit of inspiration from Scottish Tourism Week...

Since 1797 the Assembly Rooms have played host to some of Edinburgh and Scotland’s most prestigious events. Britain has a number of fantastic cities that host a range of events but we believe Edinburgh events are simply the best.

We have compiled the top five reasons why Edinburgh and, and of course, Assembly Rooms, should be your next event or conference venue of choice.

Link arms and join us as we stomp and skip into the 2016 with our Hogmanay Snow Ball ceilidh.

As it’s the season of festive cheer, we’ve asked our resident expert, J-P, to give you some tips on how to serve the best wine and ensure your guests enjoy the perfect party tipple.

We are all very excited here at the Assembly Rooms today as we are attending the VIBES awards tonight having been nominated for a Sustainability Award.

Every one here at the Assembly Rooms are committed to delivering a sustainable and environmentally friendly service so we thought we woud have a chat to our Facilities Manager Kevin Haddow who has the tough job of implementing many of the changes we have introduced. Here's what he had to say. 


Assembly Rooms Edinburgh has ‘gone green’ with a silver award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme for its focus on sustainability.
