Aquatech Amsterdam is the world’s leading water trade show for process, drinking and wastewater. Connect with water professionals from over all over the world, in the exciting city of Amsterdam. The trade fair attracts some 20,000 international policymakers, top-level businesses, specialists, and users of technology in practice to gather for four days of lively networking and doing business. At Aquatech, NWP, Water Alliance, and partners offer Dutch organisations the chance to bring their organisation to the attention of a large audience by participating in the extensive incoming mission programme and the lively Netherlands Pavilion.
Meeting international delegations
NWP and partners will host incoming delegations from all over the world. Approximately 15 incoming delegations from Asia, Latin America, the USA, and Europe will visit us. By organising these delegation visits in a coherent incoming mission programme, they offer participating Dutch organisations a qualitatively strong programme, with an increased chance of (many) qualitative matches.
Participants of the Netherlands Pavilion, receive regular updates about the delegations and programming, such as matchmaking activities and the renowned networking reception at the Netherlands Pavilion. They will have unique access to the delegations, including timely information about the delegations, plus the opportunity to request a meeting with a specific delegation. On top of that, participants of the Netherlands Pavilion are promoted beforehand to the delegations, which increases international brand awareness and opportunities for making new connections.
The Netherlands Pavilion
The Netherlands Pavilion, a hub for innovative technology displays and networking, will be back at the show in Hall 7. The Pavilion is created specially to highlight Dutch companies and organisations. Companies interested in showcasing their products, services, and expertise can sign up for stand space.
The strong NL brand attracts visitors and buyer delegations to visit the companies and organisations in the Pavilion. Companies interested in showcasing their products, services, and expertise can sign up for stand space. Exhibiting in the Netherlands Pavilion means that you benefit from the combined strengths and expertise of Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) and Water Alliance, who have organised the Netherlands Pavilion at Aquatech Amsterdam for many years. Exhibitors also benefit from the international media reach of NWP and Water Alliance’s promotional campaign and the extra promotion of the Pavilion by the organisers of the Aquatech event.
Holland Innovation Park
The Holland Innovation Park (HIP) offers special participation packages for start-ups or new innovative technology. Participation is subject to meeting a pre-defined set of criteria and all entries will be reviewed by an expert panel before being admitted to the Holland Innovation Park. If you are interested in joining the HIP, contact Tiemen Jousma or go to: Water Alliance.

We are looking into the opportunities for technology pitches, workshops, peer-to-peer seminar sessions, dissemination of market intelligence, etc. Dutch exhibitors with ideas for sessions or topics that you would like to profile to the Aquatech visitors or incoming delegations can contact Marieke Leenhouts, NWP Event Project Manager.
Amsterdam International Water Week Conference
Aquatech coincides with the world's most cross-cutting Conference for integrated water solutions: the Amsterdam International Water Week (AIWW) Conference. The main thee of AIWW 2023 is "Water in transition. accelerate the action". This year's AIWW edition aims to inspire participants to get into action and to improve the impact of solutions. The theme is inspired by the Water Action Agenda of the UN 2023 Water Conference, which states that ‘the emphasis should be on accelerated implementation and improved impact towards achieving SDG6 and other water-related goals and targets, looking at content, process and structure. The existing and future challenges in the field of water require innovative and transformative ideas and a “beyond business as usual” approach.’
Aquatech Innovation Forum
The Innovation Forum is the third piece of the Aquatech puzzle. It completes the trifecta of events in the same week: the Aquatech Innovation Forum, Aquatech Innovation Award, and the large-scale, water-focused exhibition where the Netherlands Pavilion stands.
This year's Innovation Forum will be on 6 November.
