In 2015 the Holiday Inn Leiden opened a new Event & Convention Center. The ECC is the biggest venue of Leiden for parties and international, multi-day conferences up to 2500 people. ECC Leiden is highly flexible. The ECC shares a roof with the four-star Holiday Inn Leiden hotel and therefore provides not only 2,700 m² in space, but also another 14 meeting rooms, 200 comfortable hotel rooms, a bar, a restaurant and a wide selection of sports and leisure options. Due to their years of experience gained through Holiday Inn Leiden, the ECC Leiden brings a great deal of expertise to the table with all meetings.
Any request during a conference or event can be submitted to the ECC, because of the ‘Black Box’ concept. The space is actually an empty ‘box’ which can be filled to anyone’s preference. The ECC can transform from an intimate room to a classy party or dinner, even expanding to a big hall for that exuberant business event or large-scale party, a conference or a public fair. Conferences can have all the space that is needed in the plenary hall encompassing 1,775 m². The mezzanine (431 m²) can be used for VIP meetings and stands. There are two spacious foyers (300 m² and 223 m² respectively) with two adjacent boardrooms.
The ECC Leiden has its own entrance and 4 ample supplier entrances, 12 emergency exits, ample toilet provisions, 2 bars and its own kitchen. It runs a ‘green’ operation. The 7-meter-high walls in the plenary hall are provided with 15 cm insulated sheeting which guarantees good acoustics for both business and musical events. The room is heated according to the latest energy standards and has very eco-friendly LED lighting.
The ECC is located 2 minutes from exit 8 off the A44 motorway. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and The Hague are accessible by car in 15 minutes, Leiden city centre in 5 minutes and Amsterdam in 30 minutes. The ECC is also very accessible by public transport. During rush hour there is a shuttle connection from Holiday Inn Leiden to Leiden Central Station. The location is situated right across the business district of Leiden (Leiden Bio Science Park). ECC Leiden has about 400 parking spaces.
