The Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) 2022 will be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Wisconsin Center from September 9 - 11, 2022.

Day tickets from $35, 17 and under are free.
Hotels from $159

Reunited after two years of virtual programs, MACNA 2022 Gathering and Growing will bring our community together for the best MACNA to date.

MACNA is a combination of several events.
It is an educational symposium where people can attend lectures from industry leaders, conservationists, authors, and scientists.
It is also a trade show where hobbyists can buy the hottest new corals and see new cutting edge equipment. Attendees can also give their feedback to manufacturers so they can continue to bring us the innovations we are looking for.
And lastly it is a social event. Many speakers, vendors, and hobbyists come to socialize with each other. It gives people an opportunity to put faces with names they might see on a message board or email.

Educational talks include:

Keynote: Dr. Judy St Leger - Aquaculture and Sustainability: No more clowning around

Ben Titus: Solving the Evolutionary Mystery of the Clownfish-Sea Anemone Symbiosis
