Do you organise conferences, meetings or business events in the Netherlands? If so, you are very welcome to take part in the ‘Discover Leiden’ VIP tour on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 October 2012. These two days are intended as a personal introduction to Leiden and to the city’s unparalleled possibilities for conferences and business events. You will get to know a number of very special Leiden venues and will be inspired with new ideas for a social programme.   

A tempting glimpse of this special event:


On Thursday morning 11 October, we will bring you in a luxury coach from Belgium to Leiden. You can join the coach in Brussels or Antwerp. And at the end of the day on Friday 12 October we will, of course, return you to the place where you boarded the coach. 


You will stay in the four star deluxe Holiday Inn Hotel in Leiden, where you will be given a warm welcome and can experience the hotel’s extensive facilities at first hand.

During the ‘Discover Leiden’  VIP tour, we will present to you a varied programme, that will also include some true culinary treats.

You will find out about the many beautiful and unique locations that Leiden has to offer, such as:

  • The Stadsgehoorzaal, Leiden’s impressive concert hall and congress venue;
  • An imposing medieval church that is currently used as a congress and dinner venue;
  • The Academy Building of Leiden University, the oldest university in the Netherlands;
  • Leiden’s distinctive national museums;
  • A range of other special locations for congresses and business events;
  • Corpus, the ‘journey through man’. During this journey you can see, feel and hear how the human body works and learn about the role played by healthy eating and a healthy and active lifestyle. 

As two days are really too short to gain a complete picture of the city, the partners of Leiden Marketing will make a brief presentation to you on the first day. A reception will be organised during which you will have every opportunity to discuss Leiden’s hotels and venues in an informal setting.

Besides a very varied programme, we will also give you every opportunity to network with Leiden Marketing’s partners and with your colleagues in the sector.

The definitive programme will follow shortly.


Experience for yourself the surprising versatility of Leiden, City of Discoveries, and register for this VIP tour using the attached registration form. Please bear in mind there are a limited number of places available.  You will hear from us in good time whether you have been selected as one of the participants on this journey of discovery on 11 and 12 October 2012.

I hope to see you in October in Leiden!

Kind regards,

Yvonne Kret
