SINGAPORE, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre, home to Aquarama, Asia's biggest international ornamental fish, invertebrates, plants and accessories exhibition for several years now, has been undergoing a major renovation and modernisation programme since May 2012. We have been recently informed by Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre that the expected completion of the renovation project has been delayed.
In view of this development, UBM Asia has successfully secured a new venue for Aquarama 2013 and South East Asia's first international Pet & Accessories trade show, Pet Asia 2013. The two co-located shows will span an area of 8,310 sqm and house some 200 vendors from all over the world.
We are delighted to announce that Aquarama 2013 and Pet Asia 2013 will be held at Halls B and C of the expo and convention centre at the Marina Bay Sands. The Sands Expo and Convention Center is Singapore's largest exhibition and meeting venue, featuring the island's largest hotel. At more than 120,000 square meters, the Sands Expo and Convention Center is the largest and most versatile exhibition and meeting venue in Singapore.
"The exhibition dates for the Aquarama 2013 and Pet Asia 2013 will go on as planned from May 30 to June 2, 2013 as with all other existing arrangements we have in place for our exhibitors" according to Aquarama and Pet Asia Project Manager, Jennifer Lee. "We are excited by the many possibilities that the Sands Expo and Convention Centre has to offer and will work towards making this year's shows memorable and successful for our exhibitors, as well as our trade and public visitors. We look forward to seeing you there!"
