THE DATE: August 30th – September 1st, 2019
THE LOCATION: Walt Disney World® Resort, Florida
Welcome to MASNA®’s most magical MACNA® yet! For the first time in show history, we will be exploring the wide world of marine aquariums on Disney property! MACNA® 2019 will take place at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort from August 30th to September 1st, 2019.
We will spend the warm summer days on the exhibit floor immersed in the latest products and coolest corals and then head into Orlando to experience all the shopping, dining, and thrills the theme park capital of the world has to offer!
Returning to Orlando for the first time in almost a decade, MACNA® 2019 will be returning to an old tradition of having an annual theme. MASNA® is proud to announce that the theme for MACNA® 2019 will be “Celebrating Aquaculture”.
Promoting the ethical growth of the marine aquarium hobby, supporting captive breeding / propagation efforts, and ensuring a sustainable future for the marine environment are at the core of MASNA®’s goals, and we intend to elevate our efforts in educational outreach, scholarship, and the healthy, sustainable promotion of the marine ornamental hobby with a closer focus on its practices.
Many of the MACNA® 2019 presentations and workshops will be centered around celebrating aquaculture, and we hope that our attendees, exhibitors, and media partners can join us in the promotion and advocacy of this message.
