    We are pleased to announce that this year’s Midwest Marine Conference will be held on November 4th-6th, 2011. The Conference will kick off with a reception at the Radisson of Bloomfield Hills on Friday night. The conference will resume on Saturday and Sunday with nationally renowned speakers, workshops, raffles, and contests.

    We are very excited to announce an Aquascaping Contest that will run over the course of the conference weekend. Attendees will compete against each other designing interesting aquascapes. Attendees will vote on their favorites and cash prizes will be awarded to the top two participants. Stay tuned as we announce more details in the coming weeks.

    It is $3 per day but that is just for the exhibit hall. If you want to get access to the speakers as well a full conference ticket is $25 and covers access to everything.
