Record visitor and exhibitor attendance
In comparison to the last edition of Aquatech China, this year’s show grew by a stunning 9% with 38,589 visits from Chinese and International water industry professionals. Visitors could meet more than 1000 exhibitors who presented over 33,000 products, services and solutions in the water industry. This year they could also visit the co-located FlowEx exhibition which is specialised in the transportation of fluids for a variety of industries with pump, valve and pipe products.
Highly educational experiences
Visitors and exhibitors from China and around the world came together to network and create several new business connections. Again the AquaStages were the place of choice where companies could showcase their latest innovations. This year there was a strong focus on industrial waste water solutions. The Integrated Aqua Solutions programme focused on the establishment of integrated system for water solutions. In addition, there was a Pump Summit Forum introducing a theme of the technology of pumps in water supply, drainage and water treatment.
Exhibitors of Aquatech China were very pleased with the bustle of busy exhibition halls. Much of this satisfaction is attributed to the outstanding number of diverse visitors and water professionals that attended the exhibition.
