Eventcase EMEC19 (MPI)

Apr 11th, 2019

Saturday February 9th, the city of Leiden welcomed 60 international event professionals for the European Meeting Events Conference 2019 (EMEC). A full day program which led the participants along several unique locations and sights of Leiden. All this to convince the event professionals of the strength and potency of the city Leiden. Daniël Chang, Sales Executive, represented our location ECC Leiden on this inspiring day.

Changing the Game

An international congress organized in The Hague by Meeting Professionals International. Leiden Convention Bureau provided the hosted Buyer program to convince event professionals of the potential of Leiden.

Daniël Chang: ' Together with various partners in Leiden, ECC Leiden also managed to surprise the participants. Changing the Game was the theme and Leiden has certainly fulfilled this. We are very proud of what we have put down with our location. We really have shown the possibilities of our flexible ' black-box '.

From car shows to dinner

'Holiday Inn/ECC Leiden was, as the largest location of the city, the last property shown at the end of the day. Fully using all the square meters, the ECC was divided into four different spaces, each with it's own style and atmosphere. Here one could experience the versatility of our accommodation and the great combination with the neighboring hotel Holiday Inn Leiden, according to Chang.

Dancing on the dancefloor

Instead of the traditional 'sitting and listening' sessions, the participants were stimulated to interact time and time again. The participants could go speeddating in an intimate restaurant as a copy of Holiday Inn Leiden's own Garden restaurant, swinging together on the latest hits and 'golden records' on the dazzling light floor in the disco and a plan a date on the back seat of the exhibited car show. In the spacious conference establishment, the serene peace and space could be experienced as during a large-scale meeting. ECC Leiden offered a wonderful schowcase of possibilities!

Daniel Chang looks back at this international event: 'ECC Leiden has shown her versatility to this important target group and the reactions and applications are promising for the coming years!'.

With 2700 m² of space and a private entrance, ECC Leiden offers the perfect location for major events. Centrally located in the Randstad, this ground floor 'black-box' with vide has access to 2500 persons for all kinds of meetings and events in which the establishment can be transfered as desired. With 400 private parking spaces in front of the door, 200 hotel rooms, free wifi and catering, one total concept is offered.
