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%).
Thanks to consistently positive results, RAI Holding has a solid balance sheet. To continue realising these positive results it is important that a significant proportion of the cost structure is flexible enough to adapt to revenue fluctuations.
Below you can read about the highlights of 2019 as well as the complete reports of the last years.
Foreword by the CEO
2019 was a good year for RAI Amsterdam. We implemented our refined strategy. Construction and renovation took place at the recently opened nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel and the renovated hall 5. This while we opened our doors for a large number of trade and public events.
More than 1.6 million people visited our exhibition and conference centre in Amsterdam or one of our events abroad. To share knowledge, to do business, to be inspired and to be entertained. Customer satisfaction and visitor numbers show that we have once again succeeded in this.
The RAI wants to be there for everyone and contribute to the sustainable growth and development of people, markets and the environment. In this way we create value for the city and stakeholders, both economically and socially. In the annual report 2019 you can see and read how we implement this.
