For the first time, Zoomark International, Europe’s leading B2B pet industry trade fair, will be featuring Aqua Project, a new floor area dedicated to the aquarium industry. The fair will be held May 11 to 14, 2017, at the Bologna Exhibition Center in Bologna, Italy.
The area will showcase aquariums of all kinds, with a focus on technology and design, from the spectacular to the minimal. A number of tanks will display the latest in aquascaping, the art of creating striking, highly atmospheric aquarium landscapes. The main breeders and importers of live fish will be invited, alongside the leading Italian and international companies in the sector, and the associations. There will also be a competition to find the shop-keeper with the best aquarium, and a program of workshops and demonstrations, conferences and specialized seminars on the aquarium industry, featuring experts from Italy and abroad. Collaboration with architects and interior designers will also be to the fore.
“There are many people interested in aquariums and tropical fish in this country, and it is a hobby that continues to grow in popularity,” said Marco Momoli, commercial director of BolognaFiere for Italy, organizers of the event. “For this reason, Zoomark International has decided to focus on this sector with the launch of the Aqua Project area. This new initiative will be a valuable opportunity for visibility for the companies in this sector of the pet industry, as well as offering educational events and assistance for new business start-ups, from opening a specialized shop to selling live fish.”
