    Default 19th Annual Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA XIX)

    I wanted to let you all know that the next MACNA is going to be held in Pittsburgh. This should be a great opportunity to see some fabulous speakers, new and interesting products, rare and unusual livestock, and to hang out with fellow fish geeks from all over the world.

    Registration for the full show, including the Friday night reception and Saturday banquet, is only $100 right now! But, this price will only last until the end of the year, so register now to lock in this great price.

    We have a number of excellent speakers already confirmed and are aggressively working on others. Here is a current listing:

    Eric Borneman
    Anthony Calfo
    Dr. Bruce Carlson
    Dr. Stan Dannemiller
    Helmet Debelius
    James Fatherree
    Lee Goldman
    Ron Hessing
    Kelly Jedlicki
    Dr. Sanjay Joshi
    Daniel Knop
    Sarah Lardizabal
    Dr. Frank Marini
    Dr. Catherine McFadden
    Mike Paletta
    Steven Pro
    Dr. Ron Shimek
    Dr. Rob Toonen

    Welcome Aboard! If you would, we'd appreciate any updates as they develop. Might be a good idea to toss a link to the site in this thread as well... Also, is there a banner image we can use for MACNA?

    Man, I wish I could go. That is a nice list of speakers. I bet the vendor list is pretty amazing too.

    I will defintely keep an eye out in this thread. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here. And I will post upadtes as they come.

    When I first posted this thread, the forum software would not permit me to post a link. But, now that I have more than 10 posts, it should work.

    Here is my favorite banner we have,

    The show will start around noon on Friday and wrap up Sunday afternoon. the exact schedule has not been set in stone yet.

    There is a trade-show only pass, but then you miss out on all of the speakers, the Friday night reception, and Saturday evening banquet.
