Aquatics industry looks forward to AQUA’s return 


The show will be back this October. 

 Aquatics enthusiasts are looking forward to the return of the UK’s dedicated and largest water gardening, aquatics, and reptiles trade event.

AQUA 2021 is making a return to the Telford International Centre in Shropshire on Wednesday and Thursday October 13 and 14, and is set to attract the major companies in the industry. 

Organiser Gordon Thomas said: “Already we have seen a good uptake in stand bookings from leading companies, and we’ll be working hard over the coming months to ensure the aquatics and water gardening industry can reunite in the best possible way after such a challenging period. 

“Registration for entry via the AQUA website is now open and already there has been a good response from retailers and buyers, and that shows there is a real thirst for the show.” 

Many of the industry’s leading companies have booked stand space, including Aquadip, Aqua One, D-D The Aquarium Solution, Evolution Aqua/Bermuda, Fish Science, OASE, and Seneye. 

Dominic Whitmee, chief executive of the Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association (OATA), said: “With last year’s surge in interest for garden ponds and home aquariums, AQUA 2021 should provide an excellent opportunity for businesses to discover the latest the industry has to offer to help them build on this momentum.” 

Details of the 2021 event can be found on the exhibition’s new-look website at, which includes the latest show news and how to register to visit.
