Life Solutions staff wanted to speak with our clients, partners and the general public about our high quality drinking water systems and offer them an opportunity to try out the pure, healthy water from our Billi taps. So, we participated in AquaTech China 2019 at Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Centre from June 3rd to 5th 2019.
AquaTech China is the largest trade show for drinking water, waste and process water technology in Asia. It provides a good exchange platform for worldwide water technology and water management industries, offering solutions to water risks and challenges. In 2019, more than 3,400 exhibitors from over 23 countries attracted 99,000+ professionals from 100 countries.
Prior to this major event, we invited our valued clients, business partners and friends to attend. Our Shanghai team planned, designed and supervised the building of a 5,800 mm wide by 2,600 mm tall display, with informative videos on our Billi Australia systems, the installation of a range of elegant Billi display and working units, and a break-away area where guests could sit down and chat with us.
During the event, we introduced people to Billi’s cutting-edge energy-saving technology, a small under-bench footprint and our high quality NSF certified filtration. Our business development and customer service team were on hand to answer product related questions and explain the benefits of our services, while our engineers and technicians were also available to answer detailed technical and complex installation queries. Participants were able to taste our refreshing, clean drinking water as well as take home our product catalogues and specification sheets.
The expo was an excellent opportunity for partners, clients and people new to premium quality clean drinking systems to try out and learn about our Billi water filtration systems, including our elegant XT and XL taps.

In June 2019, the Life Solutions team took a weekend trip to Huangshan (Yellow Mountain). Escaping the summer heat of Shanghai, we traveled to Huangshan City for a weekend of site-seeing, teambuilding, hiking, eating, discussing our business, socializing and celebrating our achievements together. Everyone from our housekeeper to senior leaders had a great time together and built positive memories that will last for as long as the ancient mountains themselves.
Formed over 60 million years ago in Anhui province, Huangshan has been ‘held in high esteem in China’s history’ for over 1,500 years
Not only is the mountain range vast with dramatic peaks, Huangshan also has significant cultural and historical value. Legend has it that Yellow Mountain, which used to be called Yishan (Black Mountain) was where an aging Huangdi (the Yellow Emperor) went to source a magical elixir from the mountain’s unique herbs, which made him immortal. To honour Huangdi, Yishan was renamed Huangshan, Yellow Mountain
Huangshan also has strong environmental significance and draws thousands of tourists from around China and the world each year for its natural beauty. Environmental protection and sustainable use of life’s resources are at the core of Life Solutions’ mission and so visiting this beautiful, pristine region was an obvious choice for us. In 1982, the State Council of the People’s Republic of China named Huangshan a ‘site of scenic beauty and historic interest.’ Then, in 1990, Huangshan was named as a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) world heritage site for its scenery and its role as a habitat for rare and threatened species’ , including both plants and animals found nowhere else in the world
After settling into our hotel, early on the second morning we set out to conquer Yellow Mountain. Carrying backpacks and water bottles and wearing raincoats we got into the gondolas in small groups and were whisked up through the rainy clouds. Half-way up, we got off the lift, regrouped then began climbing thousands of stone stairs, along with crowds of other tourists. Our journey to the top would include several of the 77 peaks that day, admiring beautiful, unique vegetation and birds. As we climbed, we felt the wind pick up strength and the rain began to fall. We held tight to the railings and massive boulders that flanked our path, thousands of feet above the valleys below. As the rain fell from the sky, filling streams, feeding plants and recharging ground water, we could see a part of the age-old water cycle happening before our eyes.
With aching limbs, cold fingers, drenched shoes yet wide smiles, we reached the summit of the majestic Lotus Peak (Lian Hua Peak). As the wind cleared away the rain, we saw a vast sea of clouds reaching out to the horizon. Finally, in the afternoon, after hours of hiking and almost a thousand meters ascended, we, together, had reached the top. We laughed and marveled at the peaks in the distance, the valleys below reminding us of the heights we had climbed together. Getting out of the city, as a team, reinforced why we do what we do at Life Solutions and the importance that a healthy environment with clean water holds in our lives.
