The need for meeting rooms in Aberdeen
Its not hard to see why there is such demand for Aberdeen meeting rooms. Aberdeen is a city which has been shaped by centuries of industry. Fishing, stone quarrying, agriculture, the offshore oil industry and two major universities have all played their part in building the economy, with an unemployment rate thats among the lowest in Scotland, at just 2%.
During the 19th century, herring fishing and granite quarrying were the mainstays of the economy, as can be seen by the iconic harbour and striking granite architecture Aberdeen is called the Granite City, and retains a small fishing fleet. Built at the mouth of the rivers Dee and Don, whisky distilling is another important industry. Agriculture, engineering, paper, textiles, and chemicals also continue to play an important part. However, the thing which has really helped Aberdeens economy remain buoyant is the discovery of offshore oil in the 1970s.
Modern Aberdeen diverse, vibrant and cultural
Nicknamed the Oil Capital of Europe, Aberdeens oil economy has remained stable despite slumps in oil prices and repeated recessions. While other parts of the UK floundered, Aberdeen stayed prosperous, with retail, housing and employment all remaining buoyant. Today, it is a highly popular area to live and work.
Aberdeen hosts a number of important industry conferences, one of the most important being the bi-annual Offshore Europe exhibition and conference. This is where many of the technologies of tomorrow are created with students from the citys two universities no doubt swelling the graduate recruitment ranks. By contrast, Aberdeen has a thriving arts calendar too. The city centre is a vibrant mix of shopping malls, bars, clubs and restaurants, with a large student population to keep things lively. Tourism, retail and leisure are all important to the economy.
In Aberdeen, there is a continuing need for well-equipped meeting rooms. Aberdeens business and residential populations can rely on us at Holiday Inn to supply that need.
