The world reef conference which was supposed to be held later this year (October 3-4) in Chicago has been rescheduled to 2010. The World Reef Conference will be co-located with the H.H. Backer Associates’ Pet Industry Trade Show at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont (Chicago) IL, in October of 2010. The move was due to the slow economy and the lack of vendors and exhibitors that were able to attend the show. Things in 2010 should be picking back up which should lead to a great World Reef Conference. While we wait for The World Reef Conference, what’s the next Reef Builders Live event? MACNA! If you are unable to attend just keep in locked here and we will keep you covered!
World Reef Conference rescheduled
CHICAGO, Ill. (August 8, 2009)–The Chicago
Marine Aquarium Society (CMAS) announced that
the World Reef Conference has been rescheduled.
The event will be held at the Donald E. Stephens
Convention Center in Rosemont (Chicago), Ill.,
October 8 â€“ 10, 2010.
The WRC Steering committee recommended the
change in dates, which will allow for far greater
participation from both marine aquatic vendors and
conference attendees. In recent weeks, we have
spoken with numerous potential exhibitors who wish
to participate in WRC, but are unable to because of
current budget restraints. Boyd Corbett, WRC Co-
Chair, stated that the change in dates is a fiscally
responsible move that will insure maximum
participation at World Reef Conference 2010.
We wish to thank all of the reef hobbyists and
exhibitors who have registered for World Reef
Conference. Any monies submitted will be cheerfully
refunded within the next ten days. CMAS is also in
contact with all of the WRC speakers to insure that
they will be available to participate in the
CMAS is optimistic that 2010 will be a terrific year
for the marine aquatic hobby and we are looking
forward to seeing all of you at the World Reef
Conference in October, 2010!
