Annemarie van Gaal appointed Supervisory Board member at RAI Amsterdam
Annemarie van Gaal has joined the Supervisory Board of RAI Amsterdam. Van Gaal has enjoyed a long career in media and has a strong affinity with innovation and financial management.
RAI Amsterdam is a leading player in the field of exhibitions and events in Europe. With the interweaving of offline media (of which exhibitions are one of the oldest components) and online media, the RAI will be looking very closely at the options for connecting physical meetings and virtual meetings over the coming years. In this framework, RAI Amsterdam sees Annemarie van Gaal, with her many years of expertise and experience in the media landscape and international business, as a highly valuable addition to its Supervisory Board.
Over the past ten years, RAI Amsterdam has transformed itself into an international exhibition organiser. The Amsterdam company’s strategic focus on major international, multi-day events resulted in the best annual results in 15 years in 2014, with 70 per cent of the 544 events (RAI-owned titles and third-party events) having an international character. This makes the RAI a major stimulator of corporate tourism and employment in Amsterdam.
