The World Pet Association (WPA)’s third annual Aquatic Experience show, which took place from November 6 to 8 at Chicago’s Renaissance Shaumberg Convention Center, was visited by over 6,200 guests — a 30 percent increase from last year’s show.
A total of 133 exhibitors showcased the latest in aquatic trends and products alongside local and national hobbyist groups, livestock and equipment experts, and industry manufacturers.
“Every year we continue to grow and exceeded our own expectations as well as the expectations of the vendors, retailers and consumers; this year was no exception,” said WPA president Doug Poindexter. “We realize the need and importance of an all-aquatics show and we look forward to continuing to provide a show where both sophisticated hobbyists and new aquarium keepers can be inspired and supported.”
The fourth Aquatic Experience is set to take place from November 4 to November 6, 2016. For more information, contact the World Pet Association at 626-447-2222.
