"In addition to the Aquatech Innovation Award, Aquatech showcases thousands of innovations and new products. Due to the large number and wide range of marketing & promotion opportunities, not all these premiers get the attention they deserve. The new 'InnovationLAB' concept resolves this through its variety of channels."
