NEC Aquarium Societies is having their 38th Annual Convention!


A nice sized convention in Cromwell CT is happening this weekend.
There are many speakers, a vendor room and a large auction of livestock/equipment and other odds and ends. The past 2 years there has been at least 25-30 tables filled with goodies. Stuff for everyone!

100 Berlin Rd.
Cromwell, CT 06416

Everything starts Friday and ends on Sunday.

Come pickup some plants at my table!

-Gordon :^)

woah, thanks for the heads up Gordon. Would you happen to know if there are admission fees to attend either the vendor or speaker venues?

No admission fees. You can walk in for the vendors and auction.
There might be a $1.00 fee for a bidder card but I'm not sure. I think it was free last year?
For the speakers you need to pay a fee though.

I think its 2 hours from Huntington? Not too far of a trip to be honest, right across the bridge and to the east.

I will be there, Frank will be there (franksaquarium.com) Rachel (msjinkzd.com) and I'm not sure who else!

Was a huge rush last year, I expect the same this weekend as well!
