We at ESU Scotland were very excited at being given the opportunity to host the last World Members’ Conference in Edinburgh in September 2008. Over 250 delegates from 31 countries attended.

 ESU World 2008
ESU Scotland has a gallery at 23 Atholl Crescent, Edinburgh, which can be used for exhibitions, receptions, meetings and promotional launches. The Gallery is approximately 5 minutes' walk from both Haymarket Station and Princes Street.

The main gallery measures 15 metres by 6.7 metres and is available for hire, either for exhibitions or functions. It can accommodate up to 100 for a reception or 70 people seated theatre style. There is a small kitchen adjacent to the gallery, which can be used by caterers. For art exhibitions, pictures can be displayed in the entrance hall, which forms the entrance to the main gallery.

For functions, the rental charge is £80 for a period of a morning, afternoon or evening session. The charge for longer periods will depend on circumstances.

For exhibitions, the rental is £700 per week, or 30% commission on sales, whichever sum is the greater. This figure includes heating, lighting, electricity, access to the kitchen and the use of our hanging rods. A deposit of £100 is payable, either six months prior to the exhibition, or at the time of the booking.

Our Board room can comfortably seat 10 and is available for hire for meetings or seminars. Our standard rate is £50 per half day.

ESU Scotland can help with the following, but costs are not included in the rental:
  • Invigilating - To be arranged by the exhibitor
  • Opening Party - A member of staff may be available
  • Insurance - We can take out an additional policy with our insurers, Cornhill Insurance. This is often less expensive than independent insurance cover
  • Catalogues - Photocopying of catalogues can be arranged
Hire, or an inspection of the gallery, can be arranged by contacting the office.
