We are getting ready for our trip to AQUA2019 at Telford Conference Centre next week. The biennial trade show is a must in the calendar of UK aquatics businesses and we’re looking forward to seeing the cream of the industry over October 16 & 17.

We will be at Stand J11 and will be again joined by a host of Government officials who will be on hand to answer questions and give advice. We’ll have representatives from the Animal Reception Centre at Heathrow Airport, Fish Health Inspectorate, Veterinary Medicines Directive, Border Force, APHA Plant Health Inspectorate and CITES EU Exit team. And this year we’re very pleased to be joined by Shoal who will be on hand to talk to industry about its exciting new organisation to shine a light on freshwater fish conservation and encourage you to get involved.

As usual we will have special show-only deals on membership and our City & Guilds accredited training programme so if you are thinking of investing in these then come along to enjoy special rates on the day. These are only available to visitors to our stand during AQUA2019.

Our Chief Executive Dominic Whitmee will be out and about visiting stands to catch up with members and introduce himself to businesses – the show is a great place to network! And if you particularly want to chat with Dominic he will be on our stand at J11 between 2pm & 3pm both days of the show when you can be sure to catch him.

AQUA is a trade show for businesses involved in the ornamental fish and aquatic industry only.
