The Aquatech Amsterdam Lowdown

In our blog this week, we’ve announced that we’re excited to be attending Aquatech Amsterdam 2017 this year. The four day Aquatech Amsterdam 2017 Exhibition is taking place from the 31st of October through to the 3rd of November.

The Aquatech Amsterdam Exhibition is the world's leading trade exhibition for water technology professionals. Exhibitors will be sharing the latest solutions and innovations, allowing you to gain knowledge, make connections, and keep your finger to the pulse of the water industry. 

Today, we’ll be sharing the insight as to why you should book your tickets today for this unmissable event.


1. The location

Aquatech 2017 is taking place in the bustling capital city of The Netherlands, Amsterdam. Regularly voted as one of the most popular destination cities in the world, Amsterdam is brimming with culture, history, and activities. This so called ‘urban village’ is one of the world’s smallest capital cities, meaning that visitors and tourists can access nearly all of it on a bike ride, walking tour, or via public transportation in just a few days – perfect to fit in your Aquatech schedule!

As well as hosting the largest historical inner city in Europe, Amsterdam features unique museums, such as Anne Frank’s house, and the Rijksmuseum. The beauty of Amsterdam’s floating city doesn’t finish in the canals, it is truly a city for artists, with the Van Gogh Museum, Rembrandthuis, and Stedelijk Museum within the city.


2. Discover innovation

We know that the water industry pulses and flows at breakneck speed, constantly updating with innovation and new technology. It can be difficult to find out and understand what’s happening within it, and this is why attending Aquatech Amsterdam is so beneficial.

Anyone who’s anyone within the water world will be in attendance, with a massive 850 exhibiting companies from water processing to drinking and waste water industries. Many organisations, such as Borg & Overstrom, will be revealing exciting plans, demonstrations, and products for the coming year. Notable and novel innovations will be recognised with the Aquatech Innovation Award, which will be judged by an independent expert jury. Visitors to Aquatech will be able to view all the innovations on the exhibition floor and within the specialised pavilions featured.


3. Network & connect

With 850 exhibitors, key figures from the industry will be exhibiting and visiting. Whether you’re an industry pro, or have just set out on your water journey, Aquatech Amsterdam offers you the opportunity to connect and network with your peers and colleagues, swapping news, advice, contact details and opportunities.

There will be a specified matchmaking session on the 2nd of November to enable ease of networking and communication, as well as a social event in which colleagues, customers, and business friends can enjoy a boat tour through Amsterdam’s famous canals.


4. Learn and grow

Any experience which allows us the opportunity to learn and grow as individuals and professionals is truly worthy, and Aquatech Amsterdam is no exception. Aquatech Amsterdam will host specialised pavilions, with focused content and material on specific sectors including; industrial user experience, desalination, smart water networks, pipefitting, pumps and processing, and country specific content receptions and presentations.

As well as available content, Aquatech will be hosting seminars, in which industry experts will be sharing their knowledge on innovation, the economy, climate change, cities, water scarcity, and many more topics.
