Aquarama 2016

Post by wolverine » Mon Oct 24, 2016 1:16 pm

Personally, i was intending to visit Aquarama in Guangzhou, unfortunately, i did not managed to contact any one from there to get more information regarding the goldfish part and also due to my work, i missed the event. Until now i still not sure, if there is a goldfish section in this event.

If anyone has any goldfish photo from the event, please share. Thanks

Below are the report from "Reef to Forest Media"
The global aquatic industry show Aquarama, formerly held biennially in Singapore, is now in full swing in its new home—Guangzhou, China—and, as expected, the show has plenty to offer in terms of impressive displays of live fish and invertebrates. With a number of competitions held on-site, as well as some elaborate vendor displays.

Although the event’s move away from Singapore has changed the overall dynamic to a more China-centric event than in years past, the live fish and products on display present a fascinating look at the country’s enormous—and still growing—segment of the global trade and hobby. Despite fishkeeping being a relatively small, niche hobby, it inevitably manifests itself in different ways in different areas, reflecting both the culture and traditions of these regions. China, as the first to domesticate and keep pet fish, is rich with both, and certainly has its own distinctive approach to the aquarium hobby today.  The host city, Guangzhou, is already a major center for both aquarium fish-breeding (supplying domestic and export markets), as well as the manufacture of aquarium products, many of which are bound for the US or Europe.

Got the report from Aquarama Site... ...
(Unfortunately, no goldfish is exhibition)

Show Review (2016)
GUANGZHOU (CHINA), Sept.29, 2016.
Aquarama 2016 closed successfully on September 25th at Guangzhou Import & Export Fair Complex, attracting more than 33000 visitors in 4 days. 

The 15th edition marked a new beginning for the event. Relocated to Guangzhou after 26 years in Singapore, the show is betting on profound changes in the regional market and industry dynamics. 

During the first 2 days, 7926 qualified buyers from 61 countries visited the event, showing strong interest in all represented exhibits: accessories manufacturers, fish exporters, international brands, solutions for large and public aquariums and aquaculture technologies. Overseas visitors represented 34.7% of all attendees – less in proportion but higher in absolute numbers than the show in Singapore. Exhibitors especially reported the high quality of buyers, who placed all-time record orders on the show floor and during factory tours organized right after the event.

On consumer days, the show welcomed a record number of 25386 visitors, mainly from the densely populated Guangdong province. One of the key objectives for Aquarama in China is to build a new generation of aquarium lovers and develop brand loyalty among new hobbyists. Special efforts were put into developing interest among younger generations: several onsite activities were organized for kids and students, in particular a much-appreciated hands-on aquascaping masterclass with the cream of the industry (Oliver Knott, Filipe Oliveira).

With over 1,000 tanks entered overall from nearly 450 domestic and overseas participants, and with over 45 judges from 15 countries, the Aquarama fish competitions, allied to the fully subscribed and hugely successful farm visits, proved again that ornamental fish remain a key and certainly the most unifying aspect of the Aquarium Industry. The competitions were organized jointly with local and international partners, carefully selected for their track record of professionalism and ability to pay attention on details. The traditional fish farm tour took visitors from 15 countries to 3 important farms in South-China.

Once again, Aquarama hosted high-quality trade and public seminars, with a strong desire to bring together a wide range of opinions and ideas from all over the world, leading to passionate debates during the show. Dr. Gerald Bassleer, Heiko Bleher, as well as representatives from the Asia-Pacific Ornamental Fish Union shared their thought about the future of the industry. They served to lay the foundation for several significant collaborative initiatives between private and public aquariums, accessories manufacturers and ornamental aquatic sectors that would hopefully lead to increased interest in aquarium keeping with its numerous associated benefits for all the stakeholders.

Aquarama will come back on 26-29 May 2017 with 2 additional new halls, gathering more accessories suppliers, fish exporters, international brands, solution for public aquariums and breeders. Along with exhibits, the fish competition will be extended to additional categories, trade seminars reorganized in all-new format, consumer activities reinforced to develop a new generation of aquarium hobbyist and co-located activities brought one step further.
