AQUA confirms dates for 2019 show
7th March 2018

AQUA 2019, the market-leading showcase for the UK’s water gardening and aquatics trade, will return to the Telford International Centre on October 16 and 17, 2019.
Now firmly established as a biennial event, AQUA 2019 is set to attract the major companies in the trade.
Preparations for the 2019 event are underway and the organisers have already received enquiries from companies seeking to exhibit at the show. There is also growing interest from overseas companies and a team from AQUA 2019 will be attending Interzoo in May to meet potential international exhibitors and visitors.
Retailer Simon Jenkins, of Ripples Waterlife, said: “The show, the location and evening party are all fabulous, and there’s always a very good atmosphere around the halls. It’s important for the trade to have a well-run show every couple of years to bring people together and catch up on what’s new. I’m already looking forward to AQUA 2019.”
Steve Rudd, a partner in Maidenhead Aquatics, said: “The show is the perfect location to meet existing suppliers as well as creating new contacts in an enjoyable and relaxing environment.”
One of the highlights of the exhibition is the New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, where retailers can get to see all the new products to be launched on to the market.
Visitors will also be invited to join exhibitors at an AQUA dinner on the first evening of the exhibition and relax with fellow industry colleagues.
So what makes AQUA so attractive to exhibiting companies? Chris Hepburn, of Hozelock, said: “It’s well organised and staged at a venue which is easily accessible and suits the needs of exhibitors and customers alike. It’s an event which has become a great focal point for the aquatic trade in the UK.”
Joey Abrahams, of Aquadip, said: “It’s the perfect place for us to catch up with current customers and also display our complete range of products to new customers.” 
While Jeremy Gay, Evolution Aqua, added: “This show keeps getting better. It attracts a high-calibre of visitor and we love exhibiting.”
