Edinburgh Conference Centre gets into festival mode

Edinburgh Conference Centre at Heriot-Watt University is moving into the city’s
festival fast lane by launching a Knowledge Festival as part of the Edinburgh
Fringe this summer.

The new event will feature history professor,
Tom Devine, and Mercedes Formula One chief engineer for Mercedes, Jock
Clear.

The ECC at Heriot-Watt celebrates its
20th anniversary this year and a new website, www.edinburgh-conference.com, also carries information about the main
Festival.

ECC commercial operations manager, Lynne
Geary, believes the Knowledge Festival will be a popular addition to the
Edinburgh Fringe circuit. “We hope to introduce knowledge in a less academic,
informal and topical way,” says Geary. “We also hope that the festival will
raise awareness of the conference centre as the largest not-for-profit venue of
its kind in Scotland.”
