Booking Levels High for WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2011
Nearly a month before the official closing date for registration on Oct. 15, the organizers of WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL, the leading European trade fair focusing exclusively on water issues, are able to give a very positive initial assessment.
To date, around 300 exhibitors have registered and have booked 11,000 sq m of display space, equaling the high figures for the last event. This is a remarkable achievement, since WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL is now taking place at bi-annual intervals, as opposed to every three years. Development cycles are becoming ever shorter, so this change was necessary to let the industry exchange information even more rapidly and to specifically meet the challenges posed by water becoming an increasingly important topic. It was WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL’s aim to set an example in an events world that is undergoing change.
WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2011 is slated for May 2-5 in Berlin.
Cornelia Wolff von der Sahl, the Messe Berlin project manager of this event, is confident: “The numbers are proof that even with exhibitors’ limited resources and with lively competition among trade fairs, it is impossible to ignore WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL. Visitors interested in finding out about the latest technologies and in meeting an expert international audience cannot afford to miss next year’s event in May in Berlin. With that in mind we are confident that even under new conditions we can continue where we left off at the last event, with high numbers of exhibitors and visitors.” In April 2009 more than 34,000 trade visitors and over 700 exhibitors from 79 countries attended the 13th WASSER BERLIN.
According to Messe Berlin, the ongoing conceptual development of the event is the main reason for this positive trend, generating a significant added value for exhibitors and trade visitors alike. WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL is attracting even more participation from abroad, and has even more information to offer at the International No-Dig for example, the leading trade fair for trenchless pipeline construction.
The 29th International NO DIG is a further highlight at WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL 2011, where there will be a unique presentation of the latest in trenchless technology both at the congress and at the pipeline construction displays of the International No-Dig. Since 1982, trenchless construction methods have represented an environmentally sound, low-cost alternative wherever underground pipelines are modernized or installed. It is also the first time that the accompanying congress program will be jointly organized by all the relevant specialist organizations, a move which reflects the special affinity with the market and guarantees a focus on the latest topics.
The first WASSER BERLIN congress and accompanying exhibition took place in 1963. Since then, the goal of the event has been to comprehensively discuss the topic of water along with all its diverse aspects, and to create an international platform for an exchange of views. This is the basis upon which WASSER BERLIN INTERNATIONAL has built and continues to build its standing.
