AQUA 2021, the market-leading showcase for the UK’s aquatics and water gardening industry, will be returning to the Telford International Centre on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th October, 2021.
Now firmly established as a biennial event, AQUA 2021 is set to attract the major companies in the trade, who acknowledge the importance of exhibiting their products and services to aquatic and garden centre retailers, all under one roof.
Preparations for the 2021 event are underway and the organisers have already received enquiries from companies seeking to exhibit at the show. There is also growing interest from overseas companies and a team from AQUA 2021 will be attending Interzoo in May to meet potential international exhibitors and visitors.
Retailer Matt Hogg, Custom Reef Aquariums, Surrey,revealed why he thinks AQUA continues to be so popular: “AQUA is brilliant. It provides visitors with an opportunity to see what’s around and what’s coming up. It’s essential to attend this show and I never miss it.”
Simon Jenkins, Ripples Waterlife, added: “It’salways great to get everyone from the trade together, and it’s important this happens every two years. I thought the 2019 show was a huge success and look forward to Aqua 2021.”
As well as getting to see all the new products to be launched on to the market, visitors will also be invited to join exhibitors at an AQUA dinner on the first evening of the exhibition. The dinner is one of the main highlights of the event, where guests get the chance to relax with fellow industry colleagues.
So what makes AQUA so attractive to exhibiting companies? Ruth Low, a director of Gordon Low, said: “Ilove this show because it has a real community feel about it. I love the set-up, it’s well organised and so professional, and everyone is very helpful. It’s a pleasure to exhibit at the show.”
Joey Abrahams, of Aquadip from The Netherlands, commented:“This event is crucial for our business and is the ideal opportunity to meet current and new UK customers. It’s always a good show.”
And Andy Bond, of OASE UK, added: “AQUA is such a good exhibition because it gives retailers the chance to see all the new products first hand.”
