The 2011 edition of Aquatech Amsterdam in early November was a major success. The world’s leading exhibition in the field of process, drinking and wastewater was part of the International Water Week (IWW) for the first time, transforming it into a full-scale event.
Aquatech Amsterdam welcomed 881 exhibitors and more than 21,500 visitors, a record increase of no less than 17%. With the addition of the IWW, the program was expanded with nine conferences, a wide range of seminars, an extensive activity program for young water professionals, and various excursions to high-profile water projects and locations in Amsterdam and elsewhere in the Netherlands.
“We are delighted to have organized a successful first edition of IWW,” Amsterdam RAI Aquatech Global Events Domain Manager Paddy Young said. “The theme of integrated solutions for the entire water cycle was well received by both exhibitors and exhibition and conference visitors. Water companies as well as major industrial end-users are constantly looking for more intelligent solutions . . . they gained a glimpse into the future of these solutions.”
