Thumbs up Aquarium Expos in Greater Toronto Area 2014?

Hey folks,

I was wondering if anyone is aware of any Aquarium Expos that occur on yearly basis in the Toronto or surrounding area. I am not referring to regional club meetings where people auction off their old equipment and sell their home bred fish etc (although there is nothing wrong with that); but I mean a venue where well known vendors do presentations and speak to the public about their products. Please let me know if you know of anything that like this in the area.

Thanks!

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.

it's not really weird since it's the OTTAWA Valley Aquarium Society that is putting this on, but as stated, there are some clubs in the GTA that also hold events. However as I am not a member of those clubs and did not go searching through their site, I don't know when they are.
