SMAGUA 2014 consolidated as an international platform of the hydraulic industry.
More than 32,000 visits registered at the meeting which closes today
Zaragoza, 7 March 2014.- The 21st edition of the International Water and Irrigation Exhibition closed its doors today after four days of intense activity with more than 32,000 professionals attending, consolidating SMAGUA as the world reference in water technology.
With a total 754 exhibitors from 26 countries, 60% of attending companies foreign, the “most international” edition met the expectations of professionals and visitors who, despite the uncertainty of the market, trusted SMAGUA as a place to seek business opportunities, as a meeting to strengthen commercial relationships and as the perfect shop window for presenting new equipment and services.
Research, innovation, quality, professionalism and competitiveness are the keys to the success of an exhibition which has once more shown the new trends in the water and environment industries with a very high technological level, as shown by the 26 technical innovations related to water treatment and management that were presented.
For four days, the frenetic commercial and business activity surrounded continuous business meetings enhancing SMAGUA’s international projection. A total of 215 delegations from 29 countries took part in this edition and thus strengthened the foreign markets, one of the most influential activities developed as part of the International Water Exhibition.
The high exhibitor attendance, the level of internationalisation from the viewpoint of exhibitors and visitors, the quality of the technical sessions and the technical innovations presented are the keys that indicate the buoyancy and the importance of SMAGUA, which for four days turned Zaragoza into the capital of the hydraulic industry.
The “most international” edition of SMAGUA is therefore consolidated as a platform for projecting the hydraulic development plans in Latin America, as it has presented projects and experiences from countries such as Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil.
