Gathering Water Innovators in the Dam

Sept. 1, 2017
We take a look at the upcoming Aquatech Amsterdam event in the Netherlands and what visitors can expect.
As one of the oldest water technology events, Aquatech once again returns to Amsterdam to bring the global water industry together. What can visitors expect this year?

The success of Aquatech Amsterdam is primarily defined by the international reputation the show acquired since its first edition in 1964. It is the oldest and the largest trade show on water technology in the world and companies from around the globe are eager to get on board.

Innovation Centre Stage

Aquatech is all about innovation. From all around the world exhibitors are working to present their latest innovation in Amsterdam, eager to use this international stage to boost attention. The winner of the Aquatech Innovation Award will be announced during the Monday evening, the day before the show. Winners and nominees will present in the InnovationLAB and innovations focused on Circular Economy are to be showcased in the BlueTech Innovation Pavilion. The new Innovation Avenue is another hub for those looking for new products and solutions.

New at Aquatech

The content at Aquateersecurity and Business Strategy will be integrated on the AquaStage, in the InnovationLAB and throughout the show in general. With over 70 percent of visitors flying and driving in from other countries, Aquatech is expecting an international attendance. The majority is expected to originate from Europe with interest from Asia, US and the Middle East is rising rapidly.

ch is based on new developments and the advice of the exhibition committee, captains of industry and experts in their field. “Next to the familiar country pavilions, Industrial User Experience, Pumps & Process Plaza, we have newly added the Desalination Pavilion and Smart Water Networks Pavilion,” says Marieke Leenhouts, exhibition director for Aquatech Amsterdam.

“There will also be Circular Economy Lounge and the InnovationLAB will have an “Experiences-area” with prototypes and demos and connect to the new Innovation Avenue. Underlining the importance of innovations crucial to the future of the water market.”

The water sector is undergoing major changes. Innovation is and always has been top of the agenda. On top of that Aquatech 2017 will discuss the trending topics of water management, including: Circular Economy, Climate Change, Pollution Control, Resilient Cities, High-Techn, Energy, IT & Cyb
