Thai Water Expo set to draw Mice visitors
Thai Water Expo 2017, which starts tomorrow at Bitec Bang Na, is expected to draw 27,000 local and foreign Mice visitors, says organiser UBM Asia Thailand.
Among the visitors from the meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions sector (Mice), 4,500 are projected to be from Asian countries.
UBM Thai Water Expo 2017 is the biggest fair related to water management and water technology in the region. This year’s exhibition space is 30% larger than that for the previous fair, which was held two years ago in a 6,000-square-metre venue.
The 2017 fair boasts 500 exhibition booths with 1,500 brands from 35 countries. Twelve country pavilions such as Israel, the Netherlands, Singapore, Germany, and the US will showcase their latest water management innovations for both clean and waste water.
Sanchai Noombunnam, group director of UBM Asia (Thailand) Co, said water is one of the most important natural resources for
both everyday life and industrial use.
“Thailand has faced big problems related to water such as flooding and shortages over the past several years, so it is crucial for both the government and private sector to have new advanced technology to better manage and conserve it in the future,” he said.
Thai Water Expo 2017 will be held until June 11 along with Pumps and Valves Asia 2017 and Asean Sustainable Energy Week 2017 at Bitec Bang Na.
