ICOMIA and RAI Amsterdam renew cooperation contract

The International Council of Marine Industry Associations and Metstrade show creator RAI Amsterdam said they have renewed their cooperation agreement for another five years.

ICOMIA and RAI Amsterdam first signed a Metstrade “cooperation contract” in 1991. ICOMIA and RAI envisioned Metstrade as the industry’s most influential business-to-business trade show, and they said the show has exceeded their expectations.

“It is impossible to overstate the benefit that the ICOMIA/RAI partnership has on the industry,” Jouko Huju, president of ICOMIA, said in a statement. “We make a great team, sharing a primary goal to further strengthen the marine equipment sector. Metstrade is the most important show for our equipment manufacturers and suppliers and is a well-established ‘must-attend’ event for the global industry. I am proud of ICOMIA’s long-term association with RAI and of our commitment to Metstrade.”

The most prominent features of the cooperation include ICOMIA’s sponsorship of the Breakfast Briefing, and most important, ICOMIA’s continuing to moderate the partnership between RAI and ICOMIA’s global membership in the Marine Industry Association.

The groups said RAI remains one of ICOMIA’s staunchest supporters, providing ICOMIA with access to meeting rooms and facilities during its events and ensuring that ICOMIA is represented in the governing body of Metstrade.
