May I introduce...
Rikkert Graat, Senior Marketing Communication Manager
"RAI Exhibition is the department of RAI Amsterdam that is responsible for organizing our own shows and exhibitions. RAI Exhibitions organizes the HISWA, which is a business to consumer boat show. As a water sports enthusiast, there is no better show to work for! I've been responsible for the organization of the HISWA from 2006 till 2012. Afterwards I transferred to the car industry events of RAI Exhibitions as a Senior Marketing Communication Manager, a job I still fulfill this day. Since a year I also work for the other national titles the RAI organizes.
Next to all the Marketing and Communication activities, I'm closely evolved in the concept development of the events, which makes my job extra challenging! There is not one day the same as the day before, you only have one shots to do it right and the working hours fluctuated enormously. Therefore, the happy faces you see on the event is the biggest reward for your hard work. And to achieve this, teamwork is very important: you really share the highs and the lows together. Working at RAI Amsterdam offers you the opportunity to put yourself to the limit, in an informal working atmosphere where you can plan your own hours (mostly). And above all: you're part of the Champions League of the (inter)national event industry!"
