A trio of medical and energy conferences taking place in Edinburgh in 2023 are set to bring more than 2,000 delegates, generating a £6m economic benefit for the city.

The conferences will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) next year, helping the Scottish venue return to pre-pandemic levels of activity. 

EICC CEO, Marshall Dallas, said the venue was on track to return to pre-pandemic levels of activity at next year, 'which is encouraging for our team and our city partners'.

In May next year, the InterPorus2023 conference will see around 800 porous media scientists and engineers meet in Edinburgh to discuss the energy transition away from fossil fuel reliance and towards low-carbon energy solutions.

HYDRO 2023, hosted by Aqua-Media International, will convene in Edinburgh in October 2023. The conference will focus on all technical, environmental and economic aspects of hydropower development worldwide, as well as hybrid renewable energy systems, water storage, and climate issues. 

The accompanying exhibition will showcase companies in the international hydropower and dams industry. On post-conference study tours, delegates will have the opportunity to visit local hydropower developments.

The International Spinal Cord Society Annual Scientific Meeting (ISCoS 2023), which took place in Vancouver, Canada last year, will take place at the EICC between 8-11 October 2023. There will be approximately 600 delegates in attendance, including up to 50 wheelchair users, and the annual conference is forecast to deliver £1.5 million of local economic benefit.
