Singapore, 24-27 May 2007
Aquarama, Asia’s largest international event for the ornamental and aquatic fish industries took place at Suntec Singapore on 24-27 May in 2007. Incorporating InterGarden 2007 and Pet Asia 2007, Aquarama brought together a global mix of knowledge, expertise and a whole new world of business opportunities amidst a spectacular setting for the aquatics, water pond & garden landscaping and pets industries, offering maximum mileage in one dynamic event.
The Aquarama 2007 was again a success and this time they incorporated tank design competition and also some additional fish-competition categories. Heiko was present with his new book.
