The venue spotlight

July 5, 2010 : General Team Building

Both the Marriott Dalmahoy and the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA) are great venues for all sorts of activities from team building and company away days to conferencing.


The Marriott Dalmahoy

The breathtaking scenery of the Marriott Dalmahoy makes it a stunning venue for any event. With its combination of tradition and modern comfort, the venue can complement all themes.  Set within 1,000 acres of parkland, it’s hard to believe you’re just 7 miles from the centre of Edinburgh, the lively capital! The venue is home to two 18-hole golf courses (one championship course), a PGA-approved golf academy, gym, indoor swimming pool, spa and tennis courts. Its newly refurbished guest rooms feature luxury bedding, wireless Internet access and mini-bar and to add to all of this the Dalmahoy has an award-winning restaurant where you can enjoy the chef specialties with an incredible view of the Pentlands.

The stunning venue that is the Dalmahoy is a great backdrop to a highland fling event with gorgeous greenery and a picturesque building. This venue is also ideal for a conference so if you are looking for a venue outside of the city centre that will create an air of escape for the day, then the Dalmahoy is ideal. Maximillion can offer you great delegate management to make the whole event run smoothly.


EICA (Edinburgh International Climbing Arena)

The EICA is an awe-inspiring setting for any event. Built against the backdrop of a sheer quarry rock face and amongst the rolling hills of Ratho, it brings the outdoors in!

The EICA now offers a unique convention location with delegate capacity of up to 1,600. The experienced staff can provide tuition on rock climbing, abseiling or bouldering. Take part in their terrifying Aerial Assault course, where you are suspended 100 feet above the arena floor. There is also an extensive gym, spa, children’s soft play area, as well as café and Tiso shop, so the activities you can take part in there are endless!

The EICA is such a unique venue that it will bring the extra factor to many indoor team building activities. All sorts of different events can be held here, with a little imagination the venue can be transformed into a magical setting. The EICA also has the facilities to hold a conference, so if you are thinking about holding a conference with a difference, be sure to check out the EICA.
