Aquarama relocated in Guangzhou
VNU EXHIBITIONS ASIA LTD and UBM EXHIBITION SINGAPORE PTE LTD are pleased to announce that they have completed a deal to transfer the ownership of Aquarama and Pet Asia wholly to VNU EXHIBITIONS ASIA LTD, which will operate these events beginning with the 2016 edition.
Aquarama is Asia’s most important ornamental fish, invertebrates, plants and accessories trade show having taken place in Singapore biennially since 1989. The world-acclaimed and highly-regarded Aquarama International Fish Competition is a regular feature of the event boasting more than 1,200 entries. In 2007, Pet Asia was introduced as a collocated event to extend the offering to pet supplies and services.
In a fast changing environment, it is time for Aquarama to embrace a new future. With immediate effect, the show becomes an annual event and is relocated to Guangzhou, where it will benefit from a fast growing domestic market, a strong network of aquarium accessories suppliers and the rising role of China in the ornamental fish trade industry.
Aquarama 2016, the 15th International Exhibition for Aquarium Supplies and Ornamental Fish, will take place at Guangzhou Import & Export Fair Pazhou Complex on September 22-25, 2016. With more than 300 exhibitors expected, the event will propose a much larger show floor than previous editions, top-level seminars, numerous on-site activities, farms and factories visits and of course fish, shrimp and aquascaping competitions.
Along with a clear focus on ornamental fish and aquarium supplies trade, specific exhibit sections for upstream suppliers, public aquariums, quarantine and transport solutions will be combined with an ambitious hosted buyer program to bring the right audience to the show. Aquarama 2016 will be co-located with Aqua Fair Asia and Pet Fair South-China, two events introduced in 2015 by VNU EXHIBITIONS ASIA LTD to support the development of Aquaria and Pet markets in South-China.
