Taxi Expo, the leading Benelux trade fair for the taxi industry and its suppliers, has long been the annual networking event in the Dutch taxi industry. The next (restyled) edition will be held on Friday, November 28, 2014 at Amsterdam RAI. Following a survey of exhibitors and visitors regarding the form of the event, the organizers have changed the existing concept. The exhibition has been reduced to one full day; a day when the entire taxi industry comes together to see new products and to network with colleagues and suppliers. Cooperation with key industry parties, KNV Taxi and Challans & Faber/Magazine Personenvervoer ensures a compact and highly topical seminar programme, taking into account recent new challenges for the Dutch taxi industry.
After a critical look at the 2013 edition of the event and a survey of exhibitors and visitors, the event was developed further. The survey showed that both groups would prefer a one-day event. The survey also showed that networking with colleagues and trade suppliers should be the main focus for Taxi Expo 2014. Keeping in mind recent challenges to the taxi market, costs of participation and investment were subsequently lowered to better meet the needs of exhibitors and other participants. On behalf of Mercedes-Benz, the main sponsor in 2013, Marieke Amelsfort reacted very positively to the new concept.
Next to product presentations and networking, taxi association KNV Taxi and publishers Challans & Faber / Magazine Personenvervoer/TAXIintell jointly developed a highly topical seminar programme aimed at facing the latest challenges to the Dutch taxi markets. Taxi Expo is traditionally closed with an extensive networking reception. Together with Amsterdam RAI as a professional organiser and location all parties will make Taxi Expo the national networking event for the taxi industry.
