Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital city and after London, it is the second most visited city in the UK.

It is one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities, renowned for its heritage, culture and festivals, and home to the Scottish parliament. Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town are overlooked by the impressive castle, which offers spectacular views. The conference venue is located close to the city centre, giving delegates the chance to explore some of the highlights of this diverse and beautiful city.

We are hosting our conference in partnership with the Scottish Schools Education Research Centre (SSERC) which is based just north of Edinburgh. SSERC is one of PSTT’s long standing strategic partners, and they are providing us with valuable local support. 

The venue: the Edinburgh International Conference Centre

Edinburgh’s International Conference Centre (EICC) has established itself as a world class venue for conferences and events. The generous and flexible facilities are ideal for our varied programme, and they will enable us to create a dynamic event that offers choice and interaction.

The EICC provides:

  • Three state-of-the-art theatres
  • Three large presentation rooms
  • Multiple breakout rooms
  • An exhibition hall which will not only accommodate our exhibitors, but also provide a space for breakout sessions. As well as for lunch and refreshments

Catering at PSEC

Catering will be provided by Leith’s, who have enjoyed a successful partnership with the EICC since the centre opened in 1995. With Leith’s reputation for excellence, we are confident that the refreshments provided at our Primary Science Education Conference will be of exceptional quality.
