MACNA 2013 announces two new speakers: Richard Pyle and Mark Callahan

Sunny Florida will play host to this year's MACNA. Organizers have informed us about two new speakers added to the three-day event: Famed twilight diver/fish expert Richard Pyle and online reefkeeping personality Mark Callahan, AKA Mr. Saltwater Tank.

Richard Pyle will be the key note speaker for MACNA 2013.  We are also informed Steinhart Aquarium biologist Richard Ross will MC the banquet in what is bound to be one fun night (no pressure, Rich!).  The rest of the confirmed speakers are:

  • Jake Adams
  • Clive Bentley (sponsored by Ecoxotic)
  • Vincent Chalias
  • ChingChai (sponsored by Boyd Enterprise)
  • Craig Bingman
  • Colin Foord
  • Sanjay Joshi
  • Kevin Kohen
  • Martin Moe
  • Morgan Moore
  • Julian Sprung
  • Tony Vargas
  • Matt Wandell
  • Matt Wittenrich

MACNA 2013 is on track to be the biggest MACNA event ever.  With its tropical resort destination, top-shelf speakers, and convenient Labor's Day weekend schedule, is anyone surprised? MACNA 2013 will be held at the Westin Diplomat Hotel of Hollywood, Florida on August 30 through September 1, 2013.
