I'm with OVAS (Ottawa Valley Aquarium Society) and you might want to check out DRAS (Durham Region Aquarium Society) or CKAS (Chatham-Kent Aquarium Society) for events they hold yearly. Or if you don't mind the drive to Ottawa, we are holding our annual Aquamania event on 5-6 Apr 2014. On Saturday we have vendors set up (CadLights, ZooMed, Hagen, Cobalt) as well as presentations ongoing from Les Wilson - one of the founding partners of Cobalt International, Jesse De Luca - Sales Representative with Rolf C. Hagen, and Joseph Uy - president of Miyabi Aqua Design Ltd in Richmond BC who studied "Nature aquascaping" techniques under the famed Takashi Amano. There is more info available on the OVAS website under the forum section. Oh, and there will be a giant auction held on Sunday afternoon. Last year there was over a thousand items, plants and livestock available.
