The Venue

RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre

Europaplein 24
1078 GZ Amsterdam
The Netherlands

https://www.rai.nl/en/

RAI Amsterdam has a rich history. What started in 1893 as an association for the bicycle industry has grown into an internationally leading trade fair and conference organisation in just over a century. Many valuable meetings have taken place, often with prominent people. For example, at a public meeting in 1968, Martin Luther King addressed hundreds of people about change. During AIDS2018, Bill Clinton and Prince Harry, among others, spoke to those present about the impact of the global epidemic. Major bands and artists have taken our stage, such as Frank Sinatra, Ike & Tina Turner and U2. During these events, people have been inspired and/or knowledge was shared. Over all these years, we have gained enormous experience in how to set this in motion.
