Dates for AQUA 2021 have just been announced, allowing the UK’s aquatics and water gardening industry to begin planning for another great event.

The biennial show will be held at the Telford International Centre on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 October next year.

The market-leading show is set to attract major exhibitors in the trade, taking advantage of the opportunity to show their products and services to aquatic and garden centre retailers all under one roof.

Preparations for the 2021 event are underway and the organisers have already received numerous enquiries. There is also growing interest from overseas companies and a team from AQUA 2021 will be attending Interzoo in May to meet potential international exhibitors and visitors.

Retailer Matt Hogg, of Custom Reef Aquariums, Surrey, said: “AQUA is brilliant. It provides visitors with an opportunity to see what’s around and what’s coming up. It’s essential to attend this show and I never miss it.”

Simon Jenkins, of Ripples Waterlife, added: “It’s always great to get everyone from the trade together and it’s important this happens every two years. I thought the 2019 show was a huge success and look forward to Aqua 2021.”


As well as getting to see all the new products being launched onto the market, visitors will be invited to join exhibitors at an AQUA dinner on the first evening of the exhibition. The dinner is one of the main highlights of the event, where guests get the chance to relax with fellow industry colleagues.

So what makes AQUA so attractive to exhibiting companies? Ruth Low, a director of Gordon Low, said: “I love this show because it has a real community feel about it. I love the set-up, it’s well organised and so professional, and everyone is very helpful. It’s a pleasure to exhibit at the show.”

Pbwnews columnist Joey Abrahams, of Aquadip, said: “This event is crucial for our business and is the ideal opportunity to meet current and new UK customers. It’s always a good show.”

And Andy Bond, of OASE UK, added: “AQUA is such a good exhibition because it gives retailers the chance to see all the new products first hand.”

To discover more reasons why AQUA has become a vital date in the water gardening and aquatics trade calendar, retailers and suppliers can view comments about the 2019 event in a special video on vimeo.
