Bright Purple Academy
What is the Bright Purple Academy? Located within our headquarters in the heart of Edinburgh City Centre, the Academy is a purpose built facility designed for meetings, seminars and other events. While it is used for internal training programmes to help develop our own Bright Purple people and partners, it is also available to external companies and organisations which require a modern, high quality meeting space.
While most events hosted in the Academy have some sort of connection to the Tech industry, the subject matters are useful for people across a wide range of industries. To us, collaboration and diversity is key.
The Academy holds up to 40 people seated with a flexible layout which can be adapted to suit your requirements. The facility is fully IT compatible and comes with an LCD Projector, an electric projection screen, surround sound and free Wi-Fi.
If you are interested in learning more about the facility and cost of hire, please contact Nick Price (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Carina Brandbu (email@example.com) or call us on +44 (0)131 473 7030
