Aquatech to stage live events this year in China and Mexico

Following a successful live event in The Netherlands last year, RAI Amsterdam is proceeding with two more in-person water industry events for 2022; Aquatech China and Aquatech Mexico.

Aquatech China is the largest international water trade show in the region and will take place at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shangha, 8-10 June.

Aquatech Mexico will follow later in the year at the Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City, 6-8 September.

Mexico’s water shortfall is predicted to be close to 23 billion cubic meters by 2030 and less than half of the country’s wastewater is treated and reused. The country faces such an immense challenge that the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission is developing a 50-year water plan.

Commenting on the success of the live event held in Amsterdam in 2021, Edith Hoogenberg, Director Aquatech Amsterdam said “Research showed that networking and knowledge exchange was higher on the visitor agenda than ever. Our partners in the HUBs, the associations and country pavilions composed an amazing programme covering over 100 topics and serving a cold drink afterwards to relax and encourage those unexpected meetings.”

Annette Bos, Director Aquatech Global added “Like so many we had a tough year but I am very proud of the result. To do better and more business in person contact has proven to be priceless. The energy and inspiration off all these different conversations and encounters where tangible and turned this in a unique edition of Aquatech Amsterdam. A heartfelt thank you goes to our exhibitors for their support and trust. Together with our visitors they helped us put on a great show. Together we made it work!”
