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. Our refined strategy was implemented. We carried out various renovation and building activities related to the recently opened nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel and renovated Hall 5. At the same time, the venue welcomed a large number of trade and consumer events.
We also welcomed over 1.6 million people to the exhibition and conference centre in Amsterdam or one of our events abroad to share knowledge, do business, and be inspired or entertained. The customer satisfaction and visitor numbers indicate how we once again succeeded in fulfilling our mission.
The RAI aims to be for everyone, contributing to the sustainable growth and development of people, markets and the environment in order to generate economic and social value for the city and our stakeholders. Find out more about how we are fulfilling these objectives in our annual report 2019.
