Mexico City played host to Aquatech Mexico from October 26 to 28. FuturENVIRO was present at the exhibition and the international conference, both of which featured highly interesting keynote speeches. The next edition of this key water sector event will take place from September 5 to 7, 2017.
FuturENVIRO was present at Aquatech Mexico, which proved to be a great success, attracting a total of 5,333 visitors. The exhibition was the latest in the highly successful global series of Aquatech water sector events.
The next edition, set for 5-6-7 September 2017, will see a 30% expansion in the exhibition area and over 60% of the expanded show floor has already been booked.
Advance registration numbers had indicated the show was on course for a fantastic start, and the final figures confirmed this. Interest in the event was also mirrored by the response of exhibitors. Some 140 companies from around the world exhibited, coming from countries such as Israel, Korea, China, Netherlands, and the USA, as well as from Mexico itself.
‘With an excellent partner in Mexico, E.J. Krause, an advisory committee of industry leaders and the support of both the Dutch and Mexican go
vernments, we tried to create the perfect conditions for the new event and we are delighted with the result,’ says Marieke Leenhouts, product manager of Aquatech Mexico.
The Government of Mexico recently unveiled its Water Agenda for 2015-2030, underlining the water sector opportunities in the country in the years ahead. The response to Aquatech Mexico, with its focus on municipal, industrial, commercial and residential sectors, establishes it as a must-attend event for accessing this vibrant market.
¨We are very happy with the outcome of the first edition of Aquatech Mexico. We knew this was going to be agreat event right from the beginning based on the interest in water topics and solutions indicated by visitors to the Green Expo® in previous editions” says José Navarro, General Director at E.J. Krause de México.
Visitors witnessed the latest technology and service offerings on show in the exhibition area and this was complemented by a two-day Aquatech International Conference Programme covering key themes such as regulation, reuse, efficiency and good practice, as well as international innovation and experiences.
