The Aquatic Expo Charlotte
June 10 @ 10:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm$20 – $35
With over 120 vendors and a wealth of experience, TAE is loaded with knowledgeable hobbyists and professionals.
For the last three years, the Carolina Aquatic Expo and Reef Smart have laid the foundation for the future of the aquarium hobby in the Carolinas. As the 2 largest aquarium shows in the Carolinas, combined, TAE will continue to be an ambassador for the hobby and to all hobbyists.
That mission aside, TAE’s organizers have long maintained that Reef Events have devolved into cash grabs by organizers, un-inspiring talks, and pieced-together demonstrations that do little to retain visitors and event participants. TAE changes that by inviting speakers from around the world, introducing actual live shows during the event from various countries, and striving to interest and hold the attention of our visitors for the full event. TAE isn’t just a shopping opportunity, it’s also learning, connecting, and defining moments in our visitor’s day that will last for years.
