Planning for AQUA 2021 is reportedly underway, with exhibiting companies booking their stand for the biennial event next year.
The exhibition, which is set to take place in October 2021, will be a “crucial event” in the aquatics and water gardening industry, according to UK and international suppliers and retailers.
UK companies will showcase new products at the Telford International Centre next year, whilst brands from America, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Czech Republic, and The Netherlands are also planning to exhibit.
As well as having access to new market products, visitors will also be invited to join exhibitors at an AQUA dinner on the first evening of the exhibition.
Stuart Bertram, sales director of D-D The Aquarium Solution, said: “AQUA is the ideal environment to meet with all of our customers in a friendly and personal setting.
“The exhibition ticks all of the boxes for a well-run show, in a convenient central location, where we can showcase new products, meet new people or just sit down and chinwag with old friends.”
Organiser Gordon Thomas said: “It’s great to see the industry getting right behind the show again, especially when there is so much uncertainty throughout the world at the moment,” said.
“Starting to plan for a show like AQUA 2021 will hopefully bring some respite from the current coronavirus crisis. I know companies will be working hard between now and next year’s exhibition to produce new and innovative products and services.”
Simon Jenkins, from Ripples Waterlife, who has previously been a new product award judge at the show said: “It’s always great to get everyone from the trade together, and it’s important this happens every two years.
“I thought the show last October was a success and look forward to AQUA 2021. I know a lot of effort goes into getting these events to work.”
