This year they could also visit the co-located FlowEx exhibition, which is specialized in the transportation of fluids for a variety of industries with pump, valve and pipe products.
Visitors and exhibitors from China and around the world came together to network and create new business connections. Again the AquaStages were a place where companies could showcase their latest innovations. This year there was a strong focus on industrial wastewater solutions. The Integrated Aqua Solutions program focused on the establishment of integrated system for water solutions. In addition, there was a Pump Summit Forum introducing a theme of the technology of pumps in water supply, drainage and water treatment.
