Amsterdam RAI Convention Center
Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre
Each and every year, Amsterdam RAI bids a hearty welcome to more than two million visitors. The combination of excellent service, perfect accessibility, the exciting city of Amsterdam for business and pleasure is what makes Amsterdam RAI unique. Inspiring people, that’s the aim of the RAI.
The fully air-conditioned RAI complex is the main international exhibition and congress centre in north-western Europe. It covers a total exhibition area of 91,000 m2. Twelve multifunctional halls are available for exhibitions, trade fairs, cultural, sports and other events. The congress centre comprises 22 congress and conference rooms with a capacity up to 1,750 persons. For large and very large gatherings one of the exhibitions halls can be fitted out as a fully fledged conference hall.
Best of both worlds, flexibility in experience
Continuously upgrading the venue helps to fulfil the ambition of making Amsterdam RAI into Europe’s most enjoyable, innovative and international compact venue. The RAI Theatre reflects the ambitions of the RAI. It is an attractive and atmospheric location in which no fewer than 1,750 people can enjoy quality plays, opera and concerts. And there is more. Last summer, between Amsterdam RAI and the Beatrixpark an unique city beach has been created. With hammocks, beach seats, big pillows, terraces and lounge music, the entirely surface has been arranged as real beach location. Business and leisure go hand in hand.
