Situated in the business and financial district of the capital city, the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL) managed by Luxembourg Congrès offers superb conferencing facilities. Its location on the Kirchberg Plateau is a major benefit: event organisers are adjacent to the European institutions, the city’s top hotels and several cultural offerings. Luxembourg Congrès offers a full-service package, with many added bonuses included in the price of venue rentals. These include Wi-Fi; the foyer adjacent to a rental room, which can be used for catering and exhibitions; an integrated audio service; microphones and translation 72 | Issue 38 | February 2017
booths. Unlike many other venues, when a company hires the rooms managed by Luxembourg Congrès, all of the add-ons (audio visual apparatus; security; communications; and the equipment required by the translators) are included in the prices. Managing director Patrick Hoffnung explains that the venues offers great value for money, particularly during the low season (February, 10 July to 10 September, and December): “We work closely with nearby hoteliers to provide exceptional promotions during these periods.”
A space to suit everyone The ECCL hosts a huge variety of events throughout the year. It features multiple rooms perfectly laid out and equipped to
respond to the most diverse expectations and requirements. Events hosted include both national and international conferences, congresses, exhibitions, fashion shows, receptions, product launches and presentations, cocktail parties and dinners, meetings, banquets and seminars, amongst others. The ECCL is a brand new purpose-built facility. Its airy lobbies make it Luxembourg’s most outstanding conference centre. The venue has 40 briefing rooms for breakout sessions and business meetings, and a luminous and multifunctional foyer which is ideal for special events and celebrations, such as gala dinners, exhibitions or cocktail parties for up to 2,000 participants.
