John McIntyre Conference Centre

Located in the heart of the Pollock Estate, the John McIntyre Conference Centre (JMCC) offers dedicated flexible conferencing facilities ideal for both corporate and association events.  Our purpose built conference centre features a 300-seat plenary room that can be configured to suit your needs, plus four meeting rooms, two executive boardrooms, a lounge, restaurant and bar.  A fully-accessible building, the JMCC comes fully equipped with audio-visual kit and capitalises on its peaceful location with an open-air terrace with views of Arthur's Seat.

For more complex conferences requiring additional space for parallel sessions, poster boards and catering, the JMCC works exceptionally well in conjunction with St Leonard's Hall and South Hall.  On site accommodation in our two hotels, the Scott and the Scholar offer 108 bedrooms which increases in the summer months with 2000 bedrooms in the Summer Residences, helping to create a conference village environment in the heart of Edinburgh.
