La Place continues to provide guests at RAI Amsterdam with food and drinks

Monday, 8 January 2024

RAI Amsterdam and Vermaat Group have reached an agreement to extend Vermaat's contract for the La Place locations. Both La Place venues within RAI will continue to delight visitors with the tastiest sandwiches, fresh juices and smoothies, hot beverages, and cold & warm treats for the next five years.

Vermaat Group and RAI Amsterdam are pleased with the contract extension, ensuring that the La Place concept will continue to captivate and inspire RAI visitors daily. As part of the contract extension, both Spot C and Holland Café will undergo upgrades.

“At this location, we have two La Place outlets where primarily business guests, often with an international profile, can grab their meals or take a moment amidst the buzz of a trade fair or conference. The number of guests depends on the event but can reach up to 1000 guests per day.”

The La Place venues at RAI are managed by Vermaat Group. Established in 1978 in Utrecht as a delicatessen shop, Vermaat has evolved over the years into a specialist in tailor-made hospitality and has become one of the largest hospitality employers in the Netherlands with 500+ locations nationwide. Hospitality is almost always nestled within another establishment: within various companies, at airports, in museums, hospitals, zoos, and much more.

Ingrid van Leeuwen, Formula Director at Vermaat, is delighted about the contract extension for the La Place establishments within RAI. “The La Place offering aligns with RAI's exhibitions and will surprise the diverse RAI visitors in the coming years with recognizable classics and a refreshed assortment. A La Place to be proud of!”
