The Excellence Awards are conferred annually on businesses which make outstanding contributions to the exhibition industry and are acknowledged as the key event on the exhibition industry calendar.

RAI Amsterdam was shortlisted in the ‘Best International Venue’ category, where it faced stiff competition from other nominees, including Stockholmsmässan International Congress & Exhibition Centre, Expoforum Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore EXPO and MAX Atria and Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
The submission for the award included the collaboration with money 20/20, the launch of Amsterdam Drone Week, The Customer Journey Exhibitors in which we put the challenges of our customers on the first place, and the rebuilding of the Park Foyer into a multifunctional location with extra square meters of exhibition space.

Our goal is to help (international) exhibition organisers make their event the biggest success possible and a meaningful experience for exhibitors and visitors.
