MACNA 2017

The Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) is the oldest marine aquarium conference in North America. This year will mark the 26th conference. Every year a club who is a member of the Marine Aquarium Society of America (MASNA) is chosen to host MACNA.

MACNA is a combination of several events. It is an educational seminar, where people can attend lectures from industry leaders, conservationists, authors, and scientists (see list below, for this years contributors).

MACNA is also a trade show where hobbyists can buy corals and see the latest equipment being developed. lastly, MACNA is a social event. MACNA gives industry leaders, vendors, and hobbyists a chance to get together with alike minds.

The 2017 Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 25-27.
