KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Mar. 26 /PR Newswire Asia/ --
After many successful events, ASIA WATER 2012 is set to be one of the biggest and best shows in the exhibition's 14-year history. Six hundred and twenty-eight companies will be participating along with a significant group of new exhibitors. Over 12,000 visitors are expected from 40 countries around the world and National Pavilions will include displays from Singapore, Taiwan, mainland China, USA, Australia, South Korea, Austria and Denmark.
The show has proven to be an invaluable one-stop destination for many leading international companies in the water and waste water industry. And today, it is recognized by professionals as the most established exhibition in the industry, presenting the best cutting-edge products, trends, and technologies.
With much of the developed world facing economic uncertainty, the ASEAN region remains one of the major growth areas on the planet. Coupled with this development, however, are problems of pollution, water drainage and rising energy costs. Inefficient use of water and deteriorating water quality still remain threats to 80% of the world's population, which is why Asia Water 2012 is so important.
REAL NEEDS… REAL OPPORTUNITIES
Asia Water 2012 will present many exciting opportunities for businesses with answers to water problems for all countries in the ASEAN region. And they're opportunities that will only grow as the Asean Economic Community (AEC) transforms the area into a huge free-trade zone by 2015.
