Over 75 representatives from Edinburgh’s business, scientific and academic elite got together last Wednesday during the Edinburgh Ambassador Dinner. Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs, congratulated them on the significant role they had played in boosting the local economy in the last 21 years. In the last 12 months alone this had included confirming events such as Eurocities 2018 and the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies Workshop 2018.
Taking place at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, the annual dinner was also attended by world recognised leaders in their field, including the University of Edinburgh, Moredun Research Institute, NHS Research Scotland and The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Amanda Ferguson, Head of Business Tourism at Marketing Edinburgh said: “This month, Edinburgh will launch a new integrated marketing campaign that aims to build business tourism through creative collaboration across the city. The Edinburgh Ambassador Programme is testament to that collective approach in winning new conferences. ”
