Excitement builds as AQUA 2021 gets set to open


Final preparations are being made as the AQUA 2021 industry exhibition gets set to open its doors at Telford International Centre at 9am on Wednesday, October 13th. 


With an impressive line-up of exhibitors unveiling an exciting range of new products, there will be lots to keep visitors busy during this eagerly awaited aquatics and water gardening industry event.


The excitement has been building for months with companies planning their new launches around AQUA 2021. It will also be the first chance for suppliers to meet face to face with retailers since the Covid-19 pandemic began.


Now the wait is almost over for both exhibitors and visitors…and the two-day show can soon begin.


PondXpert is one company that acknowledges the benefits of exhibiting at such a prestigious show. Sales and operations manager Tom Jeffery said: “We are very excited about the show. Due to the pandemic we have not been able to see all of our retailers as much as we would have liked. It will be a fantastic opportunity to be able to showcase our full range and new products in front of both our existing retailers and potential new accounts. This will be our biggest show to date and we can’t wait for the doors to open on the 13th.”


On arrival at Telford International Centre, a large majority of visitors are expected to head for the New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews. This year’s Showcase has attracted 80 entries, which will be judged by a panel of independent retailers for the New Product Awards on the first morning of the show. The winners will be announced at 1pm.


As well as getting to see all the new products to be launched on to the market and getting the chance to meet up with exhibitors, visitors will be well looked after during their stay. There are extensive catering facilities, and everyone will receive a free refreshments and lunch voucher. Visitors can also benefit from free parking next to the exhibition hall.


There’s still time to register for free entry on the AQUA 2021 website where a full list of exhibitors can also be found.
