What is the reason for moving to the new venue? [+]
With Aquatech China continuously expanding, the move was necessary to give us the possibility to grow even more in the future. In addition, the brand new venue enables us to properly cater to all types of demands from exhibitors.
Can the organizers guarantee the newly built venue will be ready by June 2015? [+]
The venue is one of the largest development projects undertaken by the Ministry of Commerce at the moment. It’s a showcase project with a lot of international exposure. As the Chinese government has proven over the past years with events such as the Olympic Games in 2008 and the World Expo in 2010, showcase projects like this have always managed to be finished well before the opening bell. We expect the new venue to be no exception.
Furthermore, many large scale shows have been scheduled to open their doors in the new venue prior to Aquatech China in June 2015.This makes us very confident that the new venue will be up and running well before our show next year.
Will the new venue be built and operated in a sustainable way? [+]
Aquatech China 2015 will be held in the newly built China Convention and Exhibition Complex (China Expo Complex). The Exhibition Complex is projected to edge itself as the world’s largest and most competitive MICE venue of our age, with half million square meters of exhibition space consisting of 400,000 m² of indoor space and 100,000m² of outdoor space. The China Expo Complex, based in the booming Yangtze River Delta region, aims to serve China and the world with its cutting-edge design and multiple facilities and presents itself as a first class eco-friendly venue in Asia with the highest notion of environmental protection.
