Pleasant black box in the middle of the Randstad

Mar 26th, 2019

Event: De Slimste Event Professional''. ECC Leiden is a pleasant black-box location in the middle of the Randstad. Spacious parking facilities, pleasant and bright foyers and a multifunctional area of 1775 m²: the dream of every event organizers! The Society for Event Managers had a successful meeting for its members, which was organized in March 2015. The organization of ECC Leiden is pleasant, they respected and completed the wishes we had in mind, and thus, are very hospitable. We didn't need the entire space, but by the clever solution of secretion, our smaller group (approx. 90 people) had a suitable space. If you are looking for a black-box location in the Randstad, visit ECC Leiden, it’s definitely one to consider.

Marente has had a wonderful party at ECC Leiden with over 1,500 employees. A perfect organized event without any inconvenience, probably because of the excellent preparation. Both the creative thinking as arranging of all kinds of details, ECC Leiden took care of everything. Beautiful location, adequate facilities and good catering. Even the four members of our event department could enjoy the party without any stress. It was a good choice to accommodate our event at ECC Leiden

ECC Leiden truly is a fantastic location, be it for large conferences or social events

Chrismas Party event for 720 delegates. I booked 3 large business meetings in the center during the year of 2015 and always found the staff and set-up perfect to my requirements but in December 2015 we held our Christmas Party at the venue and I could not have been happier. The event consisted of a sit-down dinner for 720 people, a dinner show followed by a disco party to end the evening. From the first appointment to the end of the evening the Holiday Inn staff could not have done a better job, they handled the event in a professional manner and had wonderful ideas that turned the center into a winter wonderful and completely different from our business meetings. The feedback I received from our employees after the party was only good, well done all. The food was served with what looked like effortless speed, the menu was very good and I cannot speak highly enough of the chef that not only came up with the choices but also executed to a high standard. After the dancing many of our staff, including myself, choose to stay over and that is another advantage of this location. I cannot recommend the Center highly enough and want to again thank the staff for such wonderful organization and friendly cooperation from start to finish.

Technical tour de force

Oct 16th, 2014

International Conference: 'Africa Works. Creating New Partnerships'. This year we have chosen Holiday Inn Leiden for our 2-day conference with 720 participants, that offers a recent renovated and wonderful all-in conference venue (Event & Convention Center Leiden). The strengths of this location: a large, plenary room (2000 m²), many sub-rooms (used for the 36 workshops), 200 hotel rooms, a restaurant and private parking facilities; so everything is located under one roof. For the visitors who travelled by public transport, there was a shuttle service to and from the station. Holiday Inn Leiden also knew how to handle the high demands we required regarding technique. There was a live stream connection necessary with the participants in Africa through the Conference-app. In short: it was a technical tour de force! In the plenary room of ECC we built an information market with stands of about 40 organizations and African embassies, we had performances of an African band, some drinks at the end of the day and a speech by minister Lilianne Ploumen. The ebola-petition was offered to Hans Desai, Special Envoy ebola by The Netherlands. In the beautiful and bright Foyer 1 we did the registration of the participants and Foyer 2 was furnished with seating areas and a dressing room. There were also 2 adjoining rooms available for the speakers and press. The catering was perfectly matched to the African atmosphere through an African 4-course dinner.

Event: 'Zorg en Zekerheid draait door' (kick-off Conversation Company) Our neighbour, Holiday Inn Leiden, turned out to have the perfect outcome with their brand new Event & Convention Center. This large-scale event was build within 11 working days; including a complete and professional live-setting television studio and a stand for 430 guests. The great location and excellent cooperation made this an exciting and successful event. Moreover, their supplier 'Nightforce' took care of the entire studio setting, ' live broadcast ' and ' tv recordings'. In short, this Event & Convention Center is an ideal location, unique in Leiden and its surroundings: suitable for almost all formats and settings!
