HISWA is the only marine association in the Netherlands. Collective interests in the industry are strengthened by HISWA.

HISWA was established in 1932 as a boat show organiser. Nowadays the association gives its name to two well respected boat shows (HISWA RAI Amsterdam and HISWA Seaport in water boat show) which are organised by HISWA RAI multimedia by a joint venture of the two partners working together from 1932.
