REEF AQUARIUM

Zoomark 2011 International at Bologna Fair from 12 to 15 May 2011


zoomark_2011

This year, as every two years, there will be the important international fair “Zoomark“, now in its 14th year.

The fair is restricted to pet businnes people and vets and covers a bit’ all categories of pet, this year we are talking about an event with more than 600 exhibitors from more than 30 countries worldwide. We will be there with our friends, as usual, to make a complete report about all aquariophile stands and keep you informed on all the news.

Iquitos - mangimi tropicali - Colombo

To find out if your favorite brands will be exhibiting you have just to follow the link to the exhibitors list provided by the Zoomark where unfortunately we note several important defections by italians companies. Elos will not be present, for many years away from this fair, there will not also be present Vitrea that we liked so much the last time, ReefLine friends (and all trademarks related to it), Oceanlife, as well as Aquatronica , A brand that was born and I knew just at the Zoomark 6 years ago, but there will be Sicce (stand E45, Hall 19) along with LGMAquari which we hope will lead this year, like last time, Neapolitan coffee and lots of fun. Teco will also be present (stand A49-B44 Hall 19) showing his whole battery of chillers with the new E-chill which we recently covered.

We will see Aqua Medic (stand B43 Hall 19), Aquaristica, distributors, among the others, of Dupla, Deltec, Juwel (stand B47-B49 Hall 19), Askoll (stand B39-C34 Hall 19), CEAB (stand C44 Hall 19), Eheim (stand D39-E40 Hall 19) Hydor (Stand A28 Hall 19), JBL (stand A49-B44 Hall 19), Kent (stand A29-B22 Hall 19), Seachem (Stand A52 Hall 19), Sylvania (Stand A36 Hall 19), Tetra Italy (Hall 16 Stand C08-D09), Tunze (Stand A34 Hall 19) and ZOLUX (stand B42 Hall 16-D43).

For friends of fresh water will be there, obviously, Anubias (stand B53-C54 Hall 19).

All in all, as we have said, a pretty poor list, which also counts among the many missing Sera GmbH, Sfiligoi, Prodac, Reef Octopus, all in contrast from what reflected the other big industry trade show that is Nuremberg Interzoo, a difference that we had already looked at the report on Zoomark of 2009 but now seems to be still increasing.

I am firmly convinced that the aquarium industry should not be forgotten.

As we said at the beginning, we of DaniReef will be there Saturday, May 14 to visit the exhibition and to write for you in depth, so stay tuned, and if you want to invite us to come to visit you and to show your news, please leave us a message.

I remind all that the Zoomark is restricted to pet business people, among others, a feature that we hope will change soon and that could bring the normal people at least one of the days available, by doing so expanding the advertising, and that could lead other companies urged to join.

If any company was added to the fair in the moments after the preparation of this article can inform us and we will promptly add (and will visit).

I leave you now with a gallery of photos taken during the 2009 Zoomark
