MACNA XIX in Pittsburgh PA Sept 14-16 2007

The MACNA in TX for 2006 is not even finshed and people like myselves are making plans to addent the 2007 event. My attendance/participation at the 2005 MACNA left a hole that only another MACNA event can fill. http://www.macna2007.com

For all those whom have never been to a MACNA event (Marine Aquarium Conference of North America) I have to say you have no idea what your missing. Im sure we will get feedback on this post by past MACNA attendees that will tell you if you ever have the chance to go you should as you will be missing out on far more than you can imagen if you do not attend.

Three days of speakers and workshops. Ability to see all kinds of products on the market or those yet to be released in the vendor exhibit hall. Chances at winning hundreds of $ of products/promotions in the event raffle.

Early registration will buy you the cheapest event pass as low as $75.00 and the hotel stay at $109/night has to be one of the lowest MACNA hotel fees in a long time.

Register early to bring in the savings.

Until 9/30/06 $75.00
10/1/06 Until 12/31/06 $100.00
1/1/07 Until 5/31/07 $125.00
After 6/1/07 Until MACNA $150.00

Visit the offical MACNA XIX website for additional details and to register for the event.

As of the time of this posting the following speakers had signed on to present.

Eric Borneman
Anthony Calfo
Dr. Bruce Carlson
Dr. Stan Dannemiller
Helmut Debelius
Ron Hessing
Kelly Jedlicki
Dr. Sanjay Joshi
Daniel Knop
Dr. Frank Marini
Mike Paletta
Steven Pro
Dr. Ron Shimek

I am so excited that it's on the east coast next year!! I can make the drive to Pittsburgh in one long day (10-11 hours, maybe). I hope you all think it's worth that long a drive! From what I've read already from those there right now, it sure sounds worth it!

I have already paid my registration and booked my hotel room. Im jumping the gun this time as I was unsure of my attendance at the TX show until the last minute when I decided I couldt not come up with the funds for the hotel and airfare.

Cool! Did you get into the Radission? I guess you did so far in advance. I think I'm going to buy my ticket today. I thought about it all week and I don't have SW tanks or any plans to get one in the next year. But I did read Fenner's and Paletta's books, and I"m not ruling out SW some year. Besides, it's almost in my backyard Monroeville is a 30-minute drive for me - well, the turnpike part (I-76). It may take another 30 minutes to get down Business Route 22!

In addition to the speakers listed above, Adam Blundell, Sarah Lardizabal, and Dr. Catherine McFadden have agreed to present.

Also, be sure to buy your registration soon to take advantage of the price breaks. Right now, the full ticket with access to the trade show, all the speakers, workshops, Friday night reception, and Saturday banquet is only $100! But, as of the 1st of the year, that price will go up to $125.
