RAI celebrates Global Exhibitions Day with ‘Start up your Event’ pitch
Could RAI Amsterdam help launch your new exhibition concept?
On Wednesday 7 June, Global Exhibitions Day, RAI Amsterdam launched a global pitch to support new exhibition concepts. With the ‘Start up your Event’ pitch, the RAI offers both exhibition space as well as the knowledge and expertise required for organising events.
“Developing a good exhibition concept revolves around many dimensions,” says Denise Capello, head of Business Development. “In addition to great facilities, issues such as event design, community management and data-driven marketing are also crucial for a powerful concept. This is why we aim to support exhibition organisers with our expertise and help them successfully launch their exhibition. For this reason, the pitch is explicitly reserved for first editions or exhibition start-ups.”
An international jury of professionals from the events sector will evaluate the submitted exhibition concepts. The jury will look at aspects such as value creation for the selected target group/community, brand positioning, feasibility, and the innovation level and opportunities. The winning concept will be held in RAI Amsterdam between 1 October and 1 December 2018. Organisers with a new idea or concept can submit their contribution before 7 September 2017 via www.rai.nl/startupyourevent.
