Local UIA Partner

Amsterdam-RAI Congress Centre


We believe in the power of connecting. To bring people, ideas and visions together in a world full of opportunities.

As a facilitating and organising party, Amsterdam RAI connects context, content and communities with one another. We create the right conditions in which inspiring meetings can take place. In which various languages can understand each other as one. This synergy creates the added value of a good experience and/or a business success. Amsterdam RAI links people both physically and virtually so they can inspire, surprise and enrich one another. Always with an open mind and a global perspective.

In addition to organising 25 of its own exhibition titles, Amsterdam RAI facilitates over 500 events a year, including exhibitions, conferences, corporate events and other niche events organised in the exhibition halls and conference centre.

Amsterdam RAI Exhibitions annually organises over 25 national and international consumer and trade fairs. As the organising party, we wish to act as a matchmaker between visitors and exhibitors. Our international titles have regional spin-offs in China, America, Poland, India, Mexico and Turkey. Wherever they may be held around the world, the emphasis is on generating and maintaining new and existing business for our exhibitors, visitors, sponsors and partners.
