This marks the fourth year that HydroVision International has been honored as a recipient of Trade Show Executive‘s “Fastest 50” award.

HydroVision International 2015 — held in Portland, Ore. — boasted a record number of attendees from 57 countries.
Trade Show Executive’s published data shows that HydroVision International attendance grew 15.7% from 2014 to 2015, with net square feet of exhibit space growing by 10.8% and number if exhibiting companies growing by 10.1%.
“HydroVision International is seen as a crucial annual gathering place for hydro professionals from around the world,” said Marla Barnes, Vice President, Group Publishing Director, Hydro and Water Groups for PennWell. “In a time of tight budgets when staff travel often is getting cut, it’s gratifying to see attendance at HydroVision International continuing to grow so significantly. This growth demonstrates how important attendance at the event is to hydro professionals the world over.”
