Around the world in a day: Holland Pavilion (Hall 11)
At Aquatech, you can take a trip around the world of water in a day. Special country pavilions showcase the best a country has to offer. From Bavaria to China, from Finland to the USA. Today we highlight the Holland Pavilion.
The art of water
The Holland Pavilion is an eye-catching, sustainable showcase for the innovations of more than thirty innovative Dutch organizations. If you don’t have time to go to the Rijksmuseum, this is your plan B. The banner above the Holland Pavilion shows the interdependence of the Dutch landscape, and the need to unite and work together. The banner, inspired by the famous painting Panorama Mesdag, spotlights the typical Dutch landscape with sea, dunes, dikes, rivers, polders, meadows with cows, but also cities, residential areas, highways, cycle paths, windmills and ports. All materials can be reused or recycled.
Over thirty innovative organizations
The pavilion is home to more than thirty innovative organizations. From waste- water disposal to fish migration and biofilters, from drinking water production to groundwater systems. One striking showcase is Hydraloop, designed to reuse water at home. The water from the shower, bath and washing machine gets collected into the Hydraloop. Hydraloop uses a unique patented water treatment technology. Ordinary systems use filters or membranes to treat the water, which clog and need regular maintenance. The patented Hydraloop technology - that is the heart of the system - removes dirt, soap and other pollution without using a filter.
Meet the Dutch Water Sector
The crew of the Holland Pavilion knows the Dutch water sector and can connect you to the right partners. Don’t forget to check out the interesting programme of presentations and networking opportunities. During Aquatech, the pavilion is a home away from home for many Dutch visitors, a lively place to end your day.
Access to the Chinese water market
The Chinese water market offers huge possibilities for those companies offering innovative solutions. The China Europe Water Platform (CEWP) provides information on doing business in China during Aquatech Amsterdam. Join the launch of the CEWP urban water program today. 10:00 – 12:30 hrs D201 – 202.
In case you missed it: opportunities in the Latin American Water Sector
Yesterday, a mission from 6 Latin American countries for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs visited Aquatech. Delegates from Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras, Argentina and Guatemala were invited by the local Dutch embassies to gain knowledge on the Dutch water sector both at Aquatech and the AIWW conference. Each of the delegations presented their main water challenges and ambitions in their country.
