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 2017 as well as the complete reports of the last seven years.
Foreword by the CEO
2017 has in many respects been a special year for RAI Amsterdam, one in which we have achieved excellent results together with our stakeholders. These included making up for the expected drop in turnover (caused by the absence of AutoRAI and BedrijfsautoRAI) by expanding existing events and attracting new ones.
In addition to an impressive commercial and operational performance, 2017 was also a year in which we focused our attention on the future by reinforcing both the organisation and the physical RAI complex. As guardians of one of Amsterdam’s primary meeting places, we see this expansion and creation of multiple types of added value as our most important task. This is why, starting with this edition, our annual report will also discuss our social and ecological performance.
