On Saturday, February 9, the city was filled with 60 international event professionals for the European Meeting Events Conference 2019 (EMEC). A full-day program led the participants to various unique Leiden locations and sights. All this to convince event professionals of the power and potential of the city of Leiden. Daniël Chang, Sales Executive, represented our location ECC Leiden on this inspiring day. Changing the Game An international conference 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 was also able to surprise in this part! Changing the Game was the theme and Leiden has certainly delivered on this. We are very proud of what we have achieved with our location. We really showed what the possibilities are of our flexible 'black box'. From car show to dining 'Holiday Inn / ECC Leiden was, as the city's largest location, the bouncer of the day. Making full use of all the square meters, the ECC was divided into four different rooms, each with its own style and atmosphere. Here you could experience the versatility of our accommodation and the great combination with the adjacent Holiday Inn Leiden was emphasized, 'says Chang. Dancing on the dance floor Instead of the traditional 'sitting and listening', the participants were repeatedly stimulated to interact. The participants could speed-date in an intimate restaurant as a copy of Holiday Inn Leiden's own Garden restaurant, swing together to the latest hits and 'golden oldies' on the sparkling light floor in the disco and plan a date in the backseat of the car show on display. In the spacious conference setup one could experience the serene peace and space as if during a large-scale meeting. ECC Leiden offered a wonderful showcase of possibilities here! Daniël Chang looks back on this international event with satisfaction: 'ECC Leiden has shown its versatility to this important target group and the responses and requests are very promising for the coming years!'. With a surface area of 2700 m² and a private entrance, ECC Leiden offers the perfect location for large events. Centrally located in the Randstad, this single-storey 'black box' with vide offers access to about 2500 people for all kinds of meetings and events where the interior can be determined according to your own wishes. With 400 private parking spaces in front of the door, 200 hotel rooms, free WiFi and catering, one total concept is offered.

For the third consecutive year, ECC Leiden hosted the Fitness & Aerobics World Championships and the Hip Hop World Championships in October.

For the third consecutive year, ECC Leiden hosted the Fitness & Aerobics World Championships and the Hip Hop World Championships in October. More than 1,600 athletes from 17 countries competed for the titles in various categories. Almost 1,200 visitors could watch the spectacular acts from a grandstand. The organizing FISAF International took possession of all 200 rooms of the adjacent Holiday Inn hotel plus all meeting rooms for almost a week. 3-year contract 'All those athletes, young and old, create a unique cheerful atmosphere in the building', says Mirjam Blokhuizen, who guided the event on behalf of ECC. 'There is commotion everywhere. And then that passion for dance and all kinds of tricks and moves. It's a special experience, not least for our crew. ' For the first contact between the organizing FISAF International and ECC, we have to go back to 2017, explains marketing manager Carmen Alvarez Perez. I spoke to the president, Musta Elbani, at IMAX. We exchanged contact details, without knowing that a few months later we would sign a 3-year contract during a meeting at Schiphol. ' Understanding the event 'During the conversations with the people from ECC and Holiday Inn Leiden, I felt that we had a click,' says Elbani. 'In addition to the functional requirements, I find the personal aspect of decisive importance. They understand what we stand for, what is important to us. ' Stella Diblik, who is responsible for the event on behalf of Hip Hop Unite - affiliated with FISAF - can fully agree with this: 'For me, three things are essential when choosing an accommodation', she explains. 'Everything under one roof, easily accessible for the international delegations. And the people we work with within the location. Because they have to understand what type of event they are going to host and who their guests are. ' It's about top sport To illustrate the latter, a walk through the corridors along what are normally neatly furnished meeting rooms is sufficient. Now the chairs are on the side, there are special dance floors and contemporary rhythmic music is heard everywhere. Groups, duos and soloists practice there, get dressed and get ready. It is a colorful collection of mostly young athletes who populate the complex these two weeks. The black box of the ECC is the center of encounter. On the one hand, the stage where the performances are to be delivered, with the grandstand in front; behind it the catering square. 'The chip shop is by far the most popular', says Mirjam. 'Sweets and healthy do it a little less.' The offer is mainly aimed at visitors; the vast majority of participants use the meals in the hotel. Vouchers have been issued for this. 'We are talking about 600 breakfasts daily, more than 500 lunches and about the same number of dinners. Naturally composed into healthy and nutritious menus. After all, they are top athletes. ' The bar is set high The event has grown considerably in the three years that ECC Leiden has now hosted. 'And we have grown with them,' says Carmen. 'It has become increasingly larger, while of course we have also gained more and more experience. You learn every edition and you take that into account the following year. While it has all become much bigger. Such a grandstand for 1,200 people was unthinkable two years ago. ' Yet the 2020 edition will not take place in the Netherlands. FISAF chairman Elbani on this: 'We would be renewing the contract again because of the excellent experiences. But it is an international event. There are participants from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Russia, Portugal. Even from Trinidad & Tobago. So we will also have to settle in another country, which is fair with a view to travel costs, among other things. ' It is clear that ECC Leiden has set the bar high in the meantime, he says. "It will be quite a challenge for next year to match this." Would you like to know what ECC Leiden can do for you?
