Edinburgh and Space

Edinburgh’s space and engineering sector is continuing to grow and is fast becoming a highly sought after location for companies and a major player on the global scene. With more satellites being built in Scotland than pretty much any other place outside the USA, we are part of a new commercial space race with plenty of opportunities for scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs.

From famous centres of research, such as the now re-opened City Observatory on Calton Hill, to locations connected to leading people, like the office of Nobel-prize winner Peter Higgs, and even famous attractions, such as the Camera Obscura - Edinburgh is filled to the brim with historical spaces and cultural reference points.

Case Studies

Convention Edinburgh, part of Marketing Edinburgh, is charged with promoting the city as a destination for business events. We seek to engage with our key sectors to facilitate and encourage these gatherings, which ultimately result in a thriving knowledge economy. Edinburgh TechHour is a Convention Edinburgh initiative feeding into a VisitScotland national campaign to promote Business Events in Scotland on the global stage.
