Amsterdam RAI is an exhibition centre in Amsterdam where many large and thousands of smaller conferences, events and meetings are held annually.
One of the most visited conference centres of the world was established in 1893 as Association ‘De Rijwiel Industry’ (RI) [The Bicycle Industry]. The first bicycle exhibition took place in 1895 and became an annually recurring event where bicycles, motor cycles and vehicles were showed. In 1900 the name was changed to RAI, where the A represents vehicle (automobile).
The most famous and most visited events that are organised in the RAI, are the AutoRAI, Home Exhibition, HISWA and Jumping Amsterdam. The AutoRAI is currently a biennial recurring event, where the most beautiful, latest and most expensive vehicles are showed to the public. The most recent edition was earlier this year and it was a huge success. Eleven days long all vehicle-lovers had the opportunity to enjoy the most beautiful and latest vehicles in all categories. Even on the outside there were various events to guarantee spectacle. The Outer park hosted various test tracks, demonstrations and test drives with durable vehicles. The next edition will be held in 2013.
