Raleigh Aquarium Society Swap Meet & Sale

Raleigh Aquarium Society Swap Meet & Sale

Wake County Commons Building - Raleigh, NC

November 15th, 2009

That's right folks, The Raleigh Aquarium Society is at it again, bringing you another exciting event! We will be announcing more information as it becomes available, but let me tell you a little bit about how this event is set up to give you something to look forward to. First of all, we will be hosting this event at The Wake County Commons Building on November 15th, 2009. There will be vendors, manufacturers, stores, clubs, and hobbyists all milling together, making great connections in the industry, selling their wares, listening to speakers, or just taking advantage of all the awesome deals! Anyone at all is invited for this open event, all you have to do it contact if you would like to be a vendor, or know of or are a manufacturer or club who would be interested. However, if you would like to just attend the event, all you have to do is come! And the best part of all - it is ABSOLUTELY FREE to attend! You do not have to be a member of our club, or any club, from the beginner with their first goldfish bowl to the experienced aquarist, this event is for you! Since we know times are hard lately, and we are all trying to stay recession free, we are offering some great incentives for you to join us and help clear out space in your closets and garages and go home with more of the items you need!

Table Fee for Vendors, Manufacturers and Clubs

(Any type of product is welcome, from fresh or salt to brackish and pond, livestock to drygoods, we would like to have a nice even spread of all factions of this wonderful hobby)

Pre-Registration - $15
At The Door - $20

Entry Fee To Join Us - FREE!!! Keep your hard earned cash to spend with our vendors on items you need for a great price!

We will post updates as they become available, but as you can see there are plenty of reasons right here to go ahead and mark those calendars! We also plan to have speakers, so be sure to check back here for updates on the talks! Besides scoring lots of awesome deals, selling your wares or promoting your organization, and communing with you fellow aquarists, you might learn something new as well!

What could be a better way to spend a relaxing Sunday? =)

This information above is incorrect concerning manufacturers and clubs - if you are not selling we will provide you a display table free of charge. Charged tables only apply to those selling, promoting your organization or giving away free product is permissable free of charge.

Ooops, yes, RAS does have a website -

My apologies for being late - this is RAS VP, I just had to make a new forum handle because I am involved in another event now! =) (Did not occur to me that one would only be appropriate for a RAS sponsored event)

My next project will include many of the local clubs - I have posted it in the Announcements page on here, ReefSMART in Wilmington, NC! It is open for freshwater vendors if they would like to participate, many people do have both fresh and salt! =)
