The INSEAD Alumni Association Germany visited Gilmerton House for the opening gala dinner to their Annual Conference 2018 in Edinburgh from 14 – 16th of September.

The group of INSEAD alumni and their partners, mainly from Germany, arrived by coach from Edinburgh and were welcomed by the skirl of the bagpipes.

INSEAD is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in the world, and has more than 57,000 Alumni distributed across 175 countries.

The team of conference organizers from the INSEAD Alumni Association Germany answered a few questions about their experience at Gilmerton House.

Why did you choose Gilmerton House for your event?

“It was the most suitable venue in the Edinburgh region for the size of group we were planning for, as approx. More than 80 guests were expected. Other venues were either too large or too small, or didn’t seem to have the setting we were looking for.

“Gilmerton House was the first choice after our internet research and stayed in this position after having seen it and quite a few other locations.

“The Gilmerton House team was very efficient and competent.

“Our guests all loved the venue and entertainment.”

How would you describe Gilmerton’s ambience?

“Superb – the open fires in the downstairs room made you feel very welcome – like arriving at a friend’s house. A really warm welcome.”
