This year it’s the 17th edition. An important number, that has to fix the lower quality of its latest editions, speaking of aquarium world. The date is at the Bologna Fiere complex from 11th to 14th of May.

This important and international event will host as usual companies, service providers, publishing houses and the rest of the world industry of pet, that will use this successful international stage to show all their news in the branch.

We, from DaniReef, will be present even this time in order to give you the best reportage about the news in the Aquaculture world. We’ll try to visit all the companies that will join and we will examinate the new Aqua Project, which is gaining a lot of advertising by the organizers: it’s a booth completely dedicated to the aquaculture, the n° 19, that has to be spectacular. We have already said before that in the last years the aquaristic part has been reduced, as you can read again in our editorials of 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015.

From 2009 to 2015 the aquaristic companies participating at the event had dropped. This year it should be registered an inversion of tendence. In truth it’s very difficult to search the exhibitors in Zoomark 2017 official site. In fact using this link we should be able to consult the list of the exhibitors, but if you do a research among the companies interested in aquariums you’ll figure out that the list is incomplete. We had to search the exhibitors word by word. We excuse in advance if we missed any exhibitor.

Zoomark 2017 International exhibitors

Some companies have been inserted with an asterisk because they’re present only at distributor booth, so we didn’t mention them. The following one is the resulting list:

  • Aquaristica srl – Italy – Pad. 19 Stand A51 – B54
  • Aquatlantis Sa – Portugal – Pad. 16 Stand B37 – B41

We mention also, even if they’re not exactly exhibitors:

  • ITAU – Italian Aquascapers Union – Pad. 19 Stand Area Aqua Project

That certainly will be a booth to see and photograph.

Against the usual success of Zoomark, unluckily we have to say that even this edition has a thin list of aquaristic companies and without the most well-known ones. In fact Elos, Reefline, Aquatronica, LGMAquari, Aqua Medic, Askoll, Tetra, Sera, Anubias, Ceab, Newa, Eheim, Hydor, AGP, Planctontech, Teco, Equo, Aqua1, Carmar, Xaqua, won’t partecipate. Anyway we have to notice with pleasure that Sicce, Tunze, Aquaristica, Ocean Life have returned and they were absent in the previous editions.

We will go in order to tell you what we will witness, and probably we are going to be present in the morning of the 13th.

We remind you that the access to the Zoomark International 2017 is only for the operator in the industry, so the public isn’t allowed.

If any company has been added to the exhibition after the publishing of this article it can inform us and it will be promptly added (and visited).

Any comment?
