Edinburgh International Conference Centre


This guide explains how to reach the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) (the Centre), via public transport and describes the layout of the public areas of the building.

The layout of each major facility within the building is described in detail. The final section of the guide provides a list of rooms and facilities within the Centre, links from each entry provide directions from/to the Concierge Desk or the stairs, lift or escalator at the appropriate level.

The building is circular. The outer circle of the building is multi-storey, whilst the centre has a double height ceiling from the ground floor and is single storey.
