RAI Amsterdam is hosting a ‘hackathon’ for the events industry on 31 October 2018.

RAI Amsterdam is accepting registrations for anyone who would like to participate. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org your position in the industry before 1 September, and you will be considered for entry into the event.
The hackathon will see participants split into four teams, each with their own challenge. The winning team will receive €2,500 to donate to a charity of their choice.

Maurits van der Sluis, COO of RAI Amsterdam, said: “The Event Industry Hackathon is designed to encourage people to think outside the box and take this fine industry to a higher level.
“The solutions will be shared and returned to the event sector, underlining the RAI’s role as a platform for knowledge, contacts and innovation.”
The event will provide food and drink from RAI’s Basement Chefs, as well as inspirational speakers and entertainment. It will also give a wide range of people within the events sector a chance to network.
