The Principal Hotel was until very recently called The George Hotel and for two hundred years has been a prestigious address in Edinburgh, where Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott were regular visitors. It has benefitted from a multi-million pound refurbishment and is now one of the smartest and most distinctively Scottish hotels in the city.

Join us for drinks in the library, then allow the traditional piper to play you through to the stunning Kings Hall, described as the ‘jewel of New town, Edinburgh’ for a candlelit cultural feast with plenty of wine.

The winners will be announced and awarded by the BCI’s Executive Director, David Thorp, after which, the dancefloor will open and the music will strike up for dancing and celebrating!

The Principal Hotel is right in the heart of Edinburgh, so why not take the opportunity to explore the city?

Winners from the 2017 European awards are entered automatically into the BCI Global Awards that takes place in London each November as part of the BCI Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony.
