New Partnership Between RAI Amsterdam and APRA

Tuesday, 22 November 2016

After 3 successful years in which RAI and APRA organized the BigR/Rematec USA show in Las Vegas, RAI and APRA have mutually decided to change their partnership.

Rematec aims to be an independent platform with high quality exhibitors and visitors focusing on the remanufacturing industry in general.

“Expanding the event to other industries like maritime, agriculture and aerospace is our main goal for the future”, according to Bas Dalm, Senior Vice President International Exhibitions of RAI Amsterdam.

This vision for the future of Rematec led to separation between RAI and APRA for their US activities related to BigR/Rematec USA.

From now on APRA focusses on conventions within their regional area North America. For RAI Amsterdam the change means it will no longer be organizing the BigR/Rematec show in 2017. This makes APRA solely responsible for the entire show management. The BigR/Rematec USA show will be rebranded to ‘International Big R’ show.

RAI Amsterdam, with their brands Rematec and Rematec News, will focus on continuing to be the international platform for the global remanufacturing industry. APRA Europe, Firm and other partners continue to be involved in these ReMaTec platforms. The change in partnership gives all parties and the remanufacturing industry new opportunities and a bright future.

RAI Amsterdam invites you again to the largest international remanufacturing event in the world on 18-20 June 2017 in Amsterdam. See you at Rematec!
