ECC Leiden: a spacious location with unlimited possibilities

  • Possibilities

    ECC Leiden is a spacious meeting location, event and conference center in one. The eye-catcher is the plenary event room (1775m²), a single-storey ‘black box’ with a clear height of 7 meters. Combined with the 15 meeting rooms, ECC Leiden offers over 5000 m² of meeting space. This location offers an endless amount of possibilities for meetings and events!

  • Accessibility

    ECC Leiden is easily accessible because of its central location next to highways and public transport. Due to its location beside the A44 and near the A4, our location is easily accessible from Schiphol, Amsterdam and The Hague. ECC Leiden is located opposite the business district of Leiden (Leiden Bio Science Park) and easily accessible by public transport (a 10-minute drive from Leiden Central Station).

  • Additional wishes

    All meetings are carried out entirely in accordance with the client and in accordance with the needs and wishes. ECC Leiden offers ‘customized’ catering, modern technology and audiovisual resources. More or other wishes? Please let us know because we like to think along with the possibilities that we can offer. No question is too crazy and no meeting is foreign to us. Feel free to call, email or app!

Think big

Located in the business heart of the Randstad (western living and working area of The Netherlands), we not only offer 15 restyled meeting rooms with a wonderfully spacious lounge, but also a unique, very flexible ‘black box’ of no less than 1775 m². Together good for about 5000 m² of meeting space. The black box is a large space with a free floor space, ideal as a location for your conference (from 450 to 1000 people), event (up to 2500 people), trade fair, reception or product presentation. This ‘black box’ is fully adaptable to your wishes and can transform from a location for a staff party to a room for a conference or public fair.

On the 1st floor of the ‘black box’ there is a loft (431 m²), suitable for stands or VIP receptions. There are 2 spacious foyers (300m² and 223m² respectively) as well as two connected boardrooms.

ECC Leiden


ECC Leiden guarantees the use of sustainable services such as LED lighting, air and temperature circulation according to the latest standards. We also have excellent insulation and acoustics due to the 15 cm thick stone wool plating of the 7 meter high walls in our black box, ideal for musical events. The easy-to-operate lighting gives this large space any desired appearance. In addition, rail curtains can be used to split the large black box into two spaces, making it possible, for example, to build a catering square or to make the black box suitable for smaller meetings..
