Aquatech adds another destination to its global portfolio
Aquatech, the globally renowned and leading exhibition in the process, drinking and waste water technology sectors is branching out to Mexico. RAI Amsterdam is joining forces with E.J. Krause de Mexico to create Aquatech Mexico, taking place from 26th to 28th of October, 2016 at the World Trade Center in Mexico City. Aquatech will be co-located with the GREEN Expo, Mexico’s leading environmental and renewable energy exhibition.

Ambitious water agenda of the Mexican Government
Mexico is the second largest economy in Latin America and the 14th in the world. Water is a strategic concern for the country’s development due to the fact that there is a low availability of water and 75% of the population lives in the cities (expected to be 80% by 2030). The Water Agenda 2015-2030 of the Federal Mexican Government is an ambitious programme that reaches every part of water technology and resource management.

Co-location with the GREEN Expo
Aquatech Mexico 2016 will provide a platform for companies related to the water industry seeking to explore business opportunities in Mexico, as well as partnerships, networking, and best practices between local and international companies. The co-location with the GREEN Expo, Mexico’s largest trade show for the environmental and renewable energy industries, will ensure that Aquatech Mexico will have a large visitor base. Of the more than 10,000 attendees, almost 3,000 are looking for water and wastewater solutions.

Comprehensive B2B platform to discuss water challenges
"The current Mexican government is dedicated to improving water and wastewater systems and treatment and Aquatech Mexico 2016 will be the place to discuss all water challenges which are impacting Mexico, from water quality, water quantity, water sustainability and water security, to name a few", said Annette Bos, Aquatech Global Events Manager.

"Aquatech Mexico 2016 will be the most comprehensive B2B platform in Mexico for companies working in the water industry around the globe," said Jose Navarro, E.J. Krause de Mexico, General Director. "We are proud to announce that Aquatech Mexico will be co-located with the GREEN Expo® 2016, the largest annual Exhibition for the Environmental and Renewable Energy sectors in Mexico and Latin America for 23 years".

In this context, the event will gather automation solutions manufacturers, pumps, pipes manufacturers, chemical water treatment and/or biological water treatment manufacturers, consulting engineering companies involved in the design of water technology installations and water resource management. Furthermore construction companies involved in building of water technology plants, contractors, system integrators involved in integration of water technology projects, research institutes, associations and distributors will be present.
