ASM 2018 has an extraordinary meeting location at Dynamic Earth. The venue is situated in the beautiful landscape of Holyrood Park, yet is still right in the heart of Edinburgh making it convenient for travel, bars, restaurants and the historic sites of the capital city.
What is Dynamic Earth?
‘A visit to Dynamic Earth is like nothing else on Earth. It’s a chance to experience the primeval forces of nature as they shaped our planet, to journey through space and time and even go on an adventure around the world.’
Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor attraction situated in Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site. Sitting within an award winning and iconic tented structure at the foot of Salisbury Crags in the Holyrood area of the city, the venue has welcomed over 4 million visitors since opening.
Opening in 1999, Dynamic Earth was the UK’s first Millennium Commission funded project to open to the public. Dynamic Earth tells the story of planet Earth and how our Earth works, how life has evolved on its differing environments and the future challenges faced by the planet. It was built as a celebration of the life of James Hutton, the father of Modern Geology who studied and worked in this area of Edinburgh throughout the enlightenment period.
Dynamic Earth is situated on the grounds of an old brewery bottling plant and its development was an important catalyst for the economic regeneration of the Holyrood area.
