Germany: Wasser Berlin attracts international water industry
The Trade Fair Wasser Berlin in Germany was, not only the focal point of the German water industry, but also attracted a lot of international water companies. During the trade fair and congress on water and sustainable development the international water industry met in Berlin.
From 24 to 27 March plus minus 22.500 visitors from 104 countries found out about the latest products, services and technical solutions displayed by 557 exhibitors representing 26 countries.
The share of foreign trade visitors reached this year 27 per cent. More than ten delegations from European and non-European countries, including from Jordan, Korea and Singapore, came to Berlin. The delegation from Central America alone, which represented El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua, was able to conclude business in excess of ten million euros.
The construction site ‘No dig’ was like the first edition in 2013 a great success. Outside the venue hall water professionals were able to see the latest developments in No Dig construction. This pioneering technology provides a no-digging approach for installing and repairing underground supply lines and sewers.
