Florida "Aquarium Fish" Expo
« on: January 09, 2013, 09:49:57 AM »
The Florida "Aquarium Fish" Expo will be in Fort Myers from June 20-23, 2013. The show includes local and corporate vendors, a roster of more than a dozen speakers that includes TBAS' own Joe Gargas and Bill Shields. Also there will be auctions of drygoods and products as well as a huge live fish auction on Sunday.

The event is co-hosted by the Fort Myers Aquarium Society and the Gold Coast Aquarium Society with special mention to Tampa Bay Aquarium Society for all the outstanding support they have given. This should prove to be one of the largest freshwater aquarium shows in recent Florida history.

In addition, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors we boast about our "SWAG BAGS" that are filled with outstanding products from various manufacturers. The first 200 people to register will get a bag of products and discounts worth well over $100. So be sure to check out our website and register early to ensure you don't miss out on the best opportunity of the year.

UPDATE:
The hotel is already booking up fast so make your reservations soon. The $89 room rate is only available for a limited number of rooms and after that time the rate will go to the standard rate. Remember to use code "FAF" when making your reservation.

With over 30 scheduled vendors, the Vendor AREA is almost sold out so we will have a huge selection of products and information to see.

There will be over a dozen speakers giving talks about everything from water, to collecting, to breeding just about any species you can think of.

Our sponsors have come through in big ways and our SWAG BAGS will have a value of over $100. This means the first 200 registered participants are going home with more than double thier money back in free gifts.

There are more things in the works and I guarantee this show will have something for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you there

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the overwhelming support from the fish keeping community.

I can finally say it, we have the best  SWAG BAGS in the history of fish shows.
Each SWAG BAG has over $150 in products in it, and weighs in at over 8 pounds.


 To show our gratitude for your patronage in addition to the FREE pasta buffet on Friday evening, we have added FREE lunch during the Sunday auction.

I second Bill's remarks ; Ft. Myers showed us a great time. Thanks to all their members and also the volunteers for making the trip from Ohio worthwhile. Phil and I got to hangout with many old friends and even made a couple of new ones.
