Gala Dinner Venue: National Museum of Scotland

The National Museum of Scotland is a superb venue for our gala dinner. The museum is fairly central and is only a short taxi ride or walk from the venue and most hotels.

The short video below will give you an impression of the venue. All that is missing is the sound of bagpipes and ceilidh music !

The evening will commence at 7.30pm with welcome drinks served in the ground level foyer with its magnificent stone barrel ceiling and we will move upstairs to the light filled Grand Gallery for dinner where guests will be served a three course meal with drinks followed by music and dancing. As dusk falls over the atrium glass roof below the Edinburgh sky, there will be some traditional Scottish music to entertain and for those who want to dance and party a little more then there is a large dancefloor in the centre of the grand hall.

It is a night to socialise and have fun in an impressive venue with an informal and relaxed atmosphere among friends and colleagues. Additional guests and non delegate partners are welcome.

We recommend booking in advance to guarantee your place at our conference's gala event.

Delegates ticket prices are £35;  Accompanying person ticket prices are £70.


For the last seven years, Edinburgh has retained its position as the most popular UK city after London for hosting international association meetings.
