The Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) is being held September 7-9 in Las Vegas this year, and it’s sure to be a blast. There are still plenty of tickets left, but don’t buy them just yet if you are a Local Fish Store (LFS) owner or manager – MASNA, the organizers of the conference, have a special deal for you. For every brick and mortar (read: not online-only) LFS, MASNA is offering two free tickets per company to the Retail Exhibit Floor. While this doesn’t cover the speakers, reception, or banquet, it does give you full access to the show floor for all three days of the conference, including early access on Friday, September 7. The regular price for this pass is $50, so it’s really a generous offer, and gives you the opportunity to network with wholesalers and other retailers from around the world. You can purchase a pass to the weekend’s other events separately, or just come for the exhibit hall…and maybe for the great parties that will be happening all weekend long. Kids 17 and under have free access to the event, but also require additional Reception and/or Banquet passes. To reserve your free passes, contact the organizers HERE.
