    MACNA Places Emphasis on ‘Trade’ Show with Wholesale Only Day

    In the United States, aquarium conferences are dominated by hobbyists–they are organized by them and for them.

    In the United States, aquarium conferences are dominated by hobbyists–they are organized by them and for them. This contrasts to what takes place overseas where the emphasis is truly on industry trade–for example InterZoo and Zoomark. Similar pet industry trade shows do take place in the U.S.; namely the HH Backer show in Chicago. However, these have failed to gain significant traction in the American aquaria realm.

    There is certianly a place and a need for the hobby driven conference, but there is also a need for a true industry event. As MACNA is the biggest marine aquarium conference in the United States, the ORCA / MACNA 2010 crew have decided to highlight the often overlooked industry aspects of the event by making Thursday, September 2nd open to wholesale only.

    This wholesale only day is free to attend, but limited to those who work inside the industry. To qualify the following items must be faxed for pre-registration:

    1. Invoice for aquarium livestock or drygoods purchased from manufacturer or distributor
    2. One of the following
      • Resale Tax certificate
      • Business License
      • Utility bill listing store name
