Stands at AQUA 2017 are almost sold out, with only a handful left to sell for the two-days aquatics trade show in October.

Nearly 70 exhibitors have signed up to showcase their products at the show, which organisers say promises to be the biggest and best AQUA ever.

Show organiser Annie Foord said: “I’m delighted that confidence in the show is reinforced by the number of exhibitors already booked. The UK’s major exhibitors are again heading for Telford and we will be welcoming more international companies than ever before despite the uncertainty over Brexit.

“It’s great to know there is such enthusiasm for the show and that it keeps growing in size. This event is an important date in the industry calendar, and retailers can be assured of an enjoyable and profitable visit.”

Exhibitors include Aquadip, Aqua One, Berry Ring, CASCO Pet, Cloverleaf, Eheim, Evolution Aqua, Gordon Low, Heritage Distribution, Hertford Shelving, Interpet, JMC Aquatics, Lotus-Atlantis, Mars Fishcare, Nishikoi, OASE, Red Sea Aquatics, Tetra, TMC, Velda and Waterlife.

A full list is on the AQUA website www.aquatelford.co.uk.

A growing number of companies are choosing to exhibit at Telford International Centre on October 18-19 for the first time and new exhibitors include Aquaja, Dennerle, Soell, Marine Arts and OCTO by Reef Octopus.

A third of exhibitors have increased the amount of stand space since the last exhibition in 2015. Andrew Werendel, of Heritage Distribution, said: “We launched the company at AQUA 2013, and it was the ideal place to start the business. In 2015 we secured 50% more business at the show with more new customers on board.

“I’m pleased to announce that we have doubled our stand size for this year’s show, and are lucky enough to have Jack Kent on the stand with us. Jack has invented more aquatic products than anyone I know and is considered to be one of the founding fathers of the marine industry.”

TMC is another company looking forward to exhibiting at AQUA. “This exhibition is an essential part of our sales strategy – a great way to showcase new products to our target audience and get direct feedback from customers,” said Jayne Robb. “The show is very well organised too, by a helpful and lovely team and that is a real bonus.”

As well as getting to see all the new products to be launched on to the market, visitors can enjoy a complimentary deli bag lunch and a wide range of catering facilities. Parking at Telford International Centre is free.

Retailers and buyers will be invited to join exhibitors at an AQUA dinner on the first evening of the exhibition. The dinner, which will also be free, is a popular feature of the show, and for the first time the New Product Awards will be presented during the evening.

Visitor registration is now open at www.aquatelford.co.uk, where visitors can book their place at the dinner.
