The vendor list should come out a couple weeks prior to the swap.

Agreed... they just announced it about a week ago so give it some time. I will watch for when they release the vendor list/room layout to the public and will post the link to them here

Very doubtful that they will be there, but you never know. They are local, aren't they?

There website doesnt' say but a quick google map search said Countryside, IL. It looked to be a legit match too, so your right they are local. They should go to this, it would be a big oppertunity for them. These swaps get packed and I have noticed the past year or two plants are getting more and more popular there, at first you never found live plants now there are at least 3-4 vendors with large plant spreads. With plants you need good lights. Not to mention low power LED's are perfect for African tanks and such.

At one of the Swaps, I thought I saw Schuber Wright there selling some of their tanks and lights, so it is a good possibility
