Kuopio Water Cluster and BEM Mikkeli exhibiting at the Aquatech 2021

Kuopio Water Cluster (KWC), and Blue Economy Mikkeli (BEM), will join the Aquatech exhibition in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 2-5 November 2021.

Aquatech Amsterdam is the world’s leading water trade show for process, drinking and wastewater. “Taking part in the exhibition gives Kuopio Water Cluster and Blue Economy Mikkeli a unique opportunity to reconnect with water professionals from all over the world after a long period of remote and hybrid work”, said Panu Jouhkimo, Programme Coordinator at BEM.

During the 4-day event, we will connect with 18,000+ water experts and 650+ exhibiting companies. As a refreshing change after extended lockdowns, during fairs, there will be opportunities to join inspirational seminars and presentations, topical round tables, HUBs and pavilions, as well as Aquatech Innovation Award Show.

“Kuopio Water Cluster and Blue Economy Mikkeli respond to strong demand for Finnish water expertise and innovation, especially in the circular economy and digitalization” – said Patryk Wójtowicz, Research Manager responsible for internationalisation in KWC. Furthermore, by taking part in the Aquatech 2021, this unique interregional cooperation aims to build strong and diverse international partnerships.
