Amsterdam. During 2010 RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre hosted 590 events which attracted a total of around 1.4 million visitors, comparable to the pre-crisis year 2008. The rapid recovery of Amsterdam RAI after the crisis was primarily due to its international focus and activities. Three international trade exhibitions organised by Amsterdam RAI itself, namely Intertraffic, ISSA/INTERCLEAN and METS, enjoyed exceptionally successful editions. Other main contributors to 2010 results included recurring international events.
