The 2018 EPDA Annual Conference took place in Edinburgh from 14-16 June 2018.

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland and a multi award-winning city with a strong reputation as one of the most attractive destinations in the world, with an ideal mix of culture, shopping, dining, music, heritage and leisure activities.

A walkable and accessible city where most attractions, shopping, dining and green spaces are within an easy stroll. Because of the nearby cold waters, the temperature in the summer months is cooled thanks to its effects and the result is a much cooler summer than is felt in other parts of the continent with a daily temperature a pleasant 13°C however, chances are good that you will need a raincoat or umbrella at some point.
