Marine Aquarium Expo (MAX) is the largest event for the marine aquarium hobby in North America. MAX attracts saltwater enthusiasts from all over the United States for a spectacular weekend of selling, trading, exhibiting, and showcasing the latest products in the aquatics industry. Over 100 booths fill nearly 30,000 sq. ft. of floor space, many selling/trading livestock and drygoods. MAX is extremely family-friendly with our exclusive MAX "FinZone" and Childrens's 8-foot Touch Tank. Every paying adult will be handed a FREE MAX Swag Bag and a TFH Magazine as they enter. Admission is $15 for Adults, $10 for Seniors & Military (w/I.D.) and FREE for Children 12 & under!

Now in its third year, MAX will draw enthusiasts from all over the nation to the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California on April 2 and 3, 2011.  Anyone with a passion, intrigue, or mere interest in the marine aquarium hobby is welcome to attend from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.  Friday, April 1 will be open for exhibitor setup only.  The entrance fee for each day is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, and FREE for children under 12 years of age.

Featuring a vast marketplace of over 100 exhibiting booths, multiple speakers, various workshops, and two huge raffles in nearly 36,000 sq. feet of space, MAX is an all-inclusive marine event that features a colorful array of fish/reef aquariums and peripheral goods and equipment, corals, inverts and frags for display, trade, and sale.  Retail sales/trade activities, exhibition, showcases, and promotion are all equally encouraged.  Every registered exhibitor will receive reserved floor space, pipe-and-drape, table(s), tablecloth(s), chairs, and even saltwater included in the booth fees. WiFi, and 20-amp electricity are available at minimal additional cost.  All exhibitors and attendees enjoy a clean, comfortable, and affordable venue while exploring the thousands of exciting items available.

MAX provides the perfect annual opportunity to educate, demonstrate, and communicate an accumulated wealth of reef product and knowledge.  Attendees are exposed to the most innovative aquarium enterprises by a strong mix of participating vendors, purposely booked to provide a broad range of interests in the industry.  Large manufacturers, wholesalers/distributors, retailers, and even hobbyists will be represented to provide the best value for the event.

Southern California is one of the most spectacular areas in the world for the aquatics industry, not only in the proliferation of marine retail and supply, but also in the demographics.  The density of aquarium hobbyists residing within the greater L.A. and Orange County areas is simply unmatched, and we certainly leverage this advantage in our choice of venue at the OC Fair & Event Center and invest MAX with the professional quality and effort it deserves.  We cordially invite you to participate in this outstanding event.
