Welcome to ECC Leiden, a multifunctional conference and event location

ECC Leiden, the largest conference and event location in Leiden, offers space for large, medium and even multi-day national and international congresses and events.

The eye-catcher in ECC Leiden is the 'black box' of 1775 m²; a large room that can be decorated as wished. The easy to use lighting gives this large space a great appearance.  The large plenary space can be split into two spaces by means of rail curtains, making it possible, for example, to build a catering square or to make the black box suitable for smaller, intimate gatherings.

ECC Leiden offers an 'all-under-one-roof' formula: located under one roof with Holiday Inn Leiden. The accommodation also offers hotel rooms, catering, 14 meeting rooms and a large parking area. Moreover, ECC Leiden is easily accessible via the A44, A4 and public transport.

You must have seen this multifunctional accommodation. Call for a free tour 071 53 55 526.
