    We already have over 500 individuals committed to attend this year and still have 5 months to sign up more people. Act fast to attend the largest marine aquarist educational conference, trade show, and party in the US!

    Southwest Airlines has labeled Pittsburgh a "Featured Destination" which makes some flights to MACNA pretty cheap right now.

    I'd love to see the Elos display. They have some killer stuff. Hope to attend with some of the guy's from Preuss. Although I'm not sure how many of us they are going to take (aside from Kirby, Steve, and Rick that is).

    I just wanted to let you all know that the Radisson is full. The overflow hotels are the Holiday Inn (412-372-1022 ext. 656) and the Hampton Inn (412-380-4000). Just tell them you are coming for MACNA.

    Remember, tickets will be available at the door, particularly the trade show only passes ($25) which gives you access to the convention center where we have 112 booths of exhibitors.
