The annual report of RAI Amsterdam

RAI Amsterdam is a fully independent company financed by private means. Each year we publish our annual report, which gives a comprehensive review of our current activities and our vision for the future.

All activities come under RAI Amsterdam B.V., a subsidiary of RAI Holding B.V. This holding is owned by Amsterdam Council (25%) and the RAI Association (75%).

Foreword by the CEO

The doors of the exhibition and conference centre remained firmly shut to the public in January and February. After the COVID restrictions were lifted, the first multi-day events started returning to the RAI. From that point on the halls of the venue were rarely empty.

From major trade exhibitions and conferences such as the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), Intertraffic and PLMA, to consumer favourites like the Kingsland Festival and Amsterdam Winter Paradise, 2022 saw the RAI welcome a wide range of events. In addition, the RAI’s doors remained open for COVID testing and vaccinations throughout the year.

By the end of 2022, exhibitor and visitor numbers were largely back to pre-Covid levels. Major international organisers signed up to hold their events in the heart of Amsterdam until 2026 and beyond, reaffirming their belief and confidence in the chosen course and the continuity of the company. This allows us to take the next steps in realising the ambitions of our clients, visitors and employees, as well as the city’s residents.
