FAQ

TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATIONS

What airport should I fly into?
EDI – Edinburgh Airport

What will the weather be like?
Scotland is notoriously overcast and rainy, though we won’t know if rain is forecasted until we’re closer to the event. Average temperatures for May and June in Scotland are about 55-65 degrees fahrenheit.

How can I get from the airport to my hotel?
Taxis and buses are plentiful at the Edinburgh Airport. We recommend the Airlink bus service, which picks up right outside of Waverely Station, which is across the street from the conference hotel.

I have special dietary requirements. Will you be able to accommodate me?
We do our very best to accommodate all dietary issues that we know about in advance. Please be sure to note any needs in your conference registration and/or contact Krista Humphries (khumphries AT artsadministration.org).
