Bosses at the main conference and events centre in Scotland’s capital have revealed it is about to attract its millionth delegate – as new images were revealed showing how it will be transformed by a massive underground extension.

The revamp will see the venue stage snooker tournaments, boxing bouts and concerts for the first time. More than £300 million worth of economic impact has now been notched up at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre since it opened its doors in 1995.

And a further £2.3 billion is anticipated over the next 30 years, according to official figures produced for the complex.
