Edinburgh is a city of legends, a hub of forward-thinking innovation and progress, built on centuries of enlightenment and intellectual curiosity. Nowhere is this better showcased than in the Scottish capital’s Centres of Excellence - Technology, Life Sciences, Creative Industries, Education, Energy, Engineering and Food & Drink. Our new city campaign – Make It Edinburgh – complements VisitScotland’s nationwide campaign, Legends, to show you why Edinburgh is uniquely positioned to offer you the perfect location for your next event.
From the first demonstration of anaesthetics for use in medicine, to tech sector successes like Skyscanner and the world-leading Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, Edinburgh has always been a focal point of innovation. The city saw the first cloned mammal, is home to a uniquely Scottish take on renewables where by-products from whisky production are used as bio-fuel, and as a major publishing city, was where the Encyclopaedia Britannica was born.
