The Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) is the largest and oldest conference focused on the marine
aquarium hobbyist. MACNA XX will take place September 5th-7th 2008 at the Westin Hotel in Atlanta, Ga. Aquarium
enthusiasts will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with peers and professionals, and to learn from leading
researchers in the fields of aquaculture, marine biology, diving and oceanography. Over thirty presentations on
reef-related topics will be featured during the course of the three-day event, including speakers from Scripps
Institute of Oceanography, the Smithsonian, National Geographic, the Georgia Aquarium, and the BBC.
Tens of thousands of dollars in raffle prizes such as a trip for two to Fiji, over a hundred vendors of aquarium
related products, workshops, a banquet at the Georgia Aquarium, and a children’s program are all highlights of
MACNA XX. Based on pre-sales, this year’s MACNA is predicted to be the largest conference to date.
