Three months before the show Aquatech Global Events announced that Aquatech Amsterdam is now 99 per cent sold out. Especially noteworthy as the show moves to larger halls this year. Over 1,000 exhibitors and 25,000 water professionals are anticipated to visit Amsterdam for a week of networking and knowledge sharing with industry peers. It is a festive edition as the show born in 1964, celebrates 55 years.
Harold Mol, Senior Sales Consultant, says: “I have been working in the exhibition industry for 22 years, but new to Aquatech. Because this is such an important industry, it is a real pleasure and honour to be involved in the world of water. We have had a huge amount of interest from new companies outside Europe, including solutions providers for pumps, membranes, valves and other leading water technology. It’s going to be a truly global show!”
