Introducing MACNA 2020: Phoenix Rising, an online webinar!

While we remain safe and socially-distant, MASNA wanted to ensure that we continued to educate, assist, support, and encourage the marine aquarium industry.

Utilizing a video conferencing solution, MASNA is bringing the education, trade, and community of MACNA to the safety of our homes through a three-day online webinar.

MACNA 2020: Phoenix Rising is a three-day event featuring nine speakers, two workshops, one panel discussion, an evening “social,” community meet-ups, a remembrance ceremony, and an awards ceremony. Register now!

THE DATE: August 28–30, 2020

THE LOCATION: Online Webinar

MACNA is the longest-running Marine Aquarium conference in the world, where industry, science, and hobbyists come together for marine aquarium education, innovation, and social networking.

MACNA 2020 Online will be the 32nd annual MACNA. By continuing to support MASNA and MACNA, you show the marine aquarium industry that you too support MACNA’s mission of Education, Trade, and Community, and you support the goals and programs of MASNA. As we continue to share our passion for our industry, we hope that you can join us on this mission and share your love of our hobby with all of our virtual attendees.
