From 23 to 27 July, the RAI Amsterdam was the setting for the 22nd International AIDS Conference. Around 24,000 people from more than 160 countries attended the event, which is organized once every two years. As a tribute to the former president of the International AIDS Society and the Dutchman Joep Lange, who died in the MH17 flight, the congress this time traveled to Amsterdam. The last time the largest congress in the field of HIV and AIDS took place in our country was in 1992. Big names like Prince Harry, Bill Clinton, Elton John and Charlize Theron all came to tell their story.
As the permanent AV supplier of the RAI Amsterdam, we look back on a fantastic week. For AIDS 2018 we were allowed to do all the temporary room building and AV. For example, we built up the main theater in hall 12, which offered space for 6,000 people, but could be reduced between the sessions to a capacity of 4,000 people. Furthermore, we created several temporary rooms in Hall 10 and 11. The same we did for the Global Village, which was open to the public.
