AQUA 2019, the UK’s aquatics and water gardening industry exhibition, is getting ready to stage another memorable show in October with an impressive list of exhibitors showcasing their products and services.
Visitors to the exhibition at Telford International Centre on October 16-17 can expect a busy and exciting event with the exhibition hall packed with UK and international companies. As well as meeting up with a long list of AQUA regulars, visitors will be greeted by a host of new faces.
AQUA event chairman Dr David Pool said: “This event was set up by the aquatic trade for the aquatic trade and the organisers are constantly listening to feedback and looking for new ways to improve the visitor experience. We’re certain that time spent at AQUA 2019 will prove to be both memorable and valuable.
“A lot of planning and hard work has gone into organising this show and I’m confident you will have an enjoyable and profitable visit.”
A number of companies will be exhibiting at AQUA for the first time, including Aqua Roche, Xodis, The Gala Group, Garden Timber, Bentley Advanced Minerals, Aqualine, La Motte, Plimat, Garden Aquarium.
Charlotte Whitehead, of LaMotte Europe, said: “We are excited to exhibit at AQUA for the first time and to introduce the new SpinTOUCH FX – a proven multi-parameter water testing system, now available to the freshwater aquarium and aquaculture markets.”
French company AquaRoche will also be an AQUA first-timer as Jerome Levassor explained: “The UK is one of the biggest markets in Europe and we have a limited presence in the country. However, we can say that the shops we work with are performing pretty well with our products, and we’ll hope to get this message across at the exhibition.”
Plimat manufactures high quality WRAS approved Industrial Plastic Pressure Pipe Systems in PVC-U and ABS, and the company’s Paul Hobby said: “We’re really looking forward to showcasing our products at AQUA 2019.”
Martin Pring , of Bentley Advanced Materials, acknowledged that AQUA was the ideal place to exhibit his company’s products to UK and international buyers. “We’re excited about exhibiting for the first time at AQUA and to be able to introduce our creative moulding and casting products that we supply to help bring aquatic decoration ideas to life.”
Garden Aquarium design and manufacture a range of premium raised garden ponds with large viewing windows. “We can’t wait to display our products at the show and look to expand our approved stockists across the UK,” said the company’s Gareth Thomas.
Once again the New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, is set to be one of the highlights of the exhibition. All the items will be entered into the New Product Awards, which will be judged by a team of independent retailers on the opening morning of the show.
In recognition of the importance of the New Product Showcase, the Awards will be presented to the winners at a sold-out AQUA dinner, in front of an audience of over 600 people from the industry after the first day of the show.
As well as getting to see all the new products to be launched on to the market, visitors will be well looked-after during their stay, including free parking, a free catalogue and a free lunch voucher.
