Shrimp contest in Chicago

Has anyone here heard about the first breeding contest in the US?

Will anyone from here be attending the Aquatic Experience event?

I've heard about it from a FB group. I know some of the vendors who are members here will be attending and I'm sure some members, too!

Wish I was able to attend!

Yes, I live in the Chicagoland area and have been to the Aquatic Expo the last two years (the event started two years ago). This is the first year they are doing a shrimp expo. The event is really awesome and has tons of really gorgeous displays. Its marketed towards both people in the industry (fish shop owners) as well as hobbyists, and also families with little to no experience (but interest). They do some panels as well as the vendors in the expo hall.
