New Date and Venue for Water Expo China 2009
Singapore confirms national pavilion at the show
This year’s Water Expo China will now be held at the Beijing Exhibition Center, Beijing, China, from Nov. 18 to 20 and is expected to attract a record number of visitors following the success of last year’s show at Beijing’s National Agricultural Exhibition Centre. Running concurrently with the exhibition will be the Fourth Water Summit Conference.Organized by Messe Frankfurt and the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society, Water Expo China is the only fair sponsored by China’s Ministry of Water Resources and approved by the Ministry of Commerce.”The direct and powerful support from the Ministry of Water Resources and related government bodies makes Water Expo China an important meeting place for exhibitors and buyers in this fast-growing industry sector,” said Jason Cao, general manager, Messe Frankfurt Shanghai Co Ltd. “Exhibitors and buyers have the opportunity to meet face to face with key representatives from the Ministry of Water Resources and local water management authorities who are directly responsible for planning and managing China’s water resources in both urban and rural areas for flood control, supply, utilization, drainage, wastewater treatment and protection.”Last year’s event attracted 200 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions and included a national pavilion from Israel, which hosted 12 exhibitors who showcased advanced technologies and experiences related to water resource management, water conservation, irrigation, wastewater treatment and seawater desalination. For the 2009 exhibition, Singapore will be joining the lineup of national pavilions, supported by the country’s Association of Small and Medium Enterprises.For more information, visit www.waterexpochina.com.
