SINGAPORE, Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- "High satisfaction" was what Aquarama 2015's exhibitors reported with the amount of business they had achieved throughout the four days event, favourably comparing their level of success to that in previous editions. Trade visitors also appreciated the advancement of the quality of the products exhibited at Aquarama this year.
The 14th edition of Aquarama opened its exhibition floor on 28th May, 2015 with about 100 exhibitors from 20 countries. During the trade-only days, the exhibitors were busy in meetings with 3,000 trade visitors from 57 countries, giving the event its usual strong B2B trade atmosphere. When the event was opened to the public over the weekend, thousands of public visitors turned out and packed the hall until the end of the event.
Once again, Aquarama hosted a high-quality Trade and Public Seminar Programme, including some exciting innovations, such as the Public Aquaria Seminar, the Round Table Discussion and the Strategic Development Meeting. They served to lay the foundation for several significant collaborative initiatives between the public aquaria and the ornamental aquatic sectors that would hopefully lead to increased interest in aquarium keeping with its numerous associated benefits for all the stakeholders.
Always keen to innovate, UBM, the organiser of Aquarama, also introduced a brand new element to the already extensive range of competition that made the event such a potent crowd puller: a Crystal Bee Shrimp Competition. Once again proving that it is quality that counts, these tiny jewels proved to be outright winners, with entries having to close in advance of the prescribed date owing to high demand.
With well over 1,000 tanks entered overall from nearly 450 domestic and overseas participants, and with over 50 judges from 20 countries, the Aquarama competitions, allied to the fully subscribed and hugely successful farm visits, proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that quality can indeed triumph over quantity.
