What is Rotterdam The Hauge Airport looking for?

RTHA has to deal with a large diversity of interested parties in its surrounding area.

This event should have had taken place 20th of March with two buyers: Rotterdam The Hague Innovation Airport (RHIA) and the airline Transavia. Because of the very turbulent times, the event was postponed and since then, Transaiva have postponed indefinitely. However, RHIA is still looking for innovators.

Because we still do not know when and if restrictions will be lifted in the short term, the decision has been made to do matching on a 1-to-1 basis as potential innovators indicate their interest. This allows for more flexibility in arranging these meetings, which will take place through a virtual online connection. This is why no date or location are mentioned in attached profiles. If you’re interested in meeting with RHIA, please find contact information, in the PDF attached.
