We'er looking to do this meeting and May's online, but let's talk about maybe continuing virtual meetings. I know it can open doors for more speakers and topics as they can just join us here or even Skype from any where.What do think of that idea? Let us know at the meeting.....Thx

THE DATE: August 28 – 30, 2020

THE LOCATION: Phoenix, Arizona

Welcome to the Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA) 2020: A Reef Oasis in the Desert! Taking advantage of all the city has to offer, MACNA 2020 will be downtown Phoenix, Arizona, in both the beautiful Phoenix Convention Center, and next door in Phoenix’s largest hotel, the Sheraton Grand Phoenix, from August 28th – 30th, 2020.

MACNA 2020 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, as well as support the goals and programs of MASNA. As we travel and continue to share our passion of our industry, we hope that you can join us on this mission, and share your love of our hobby with all of attendees.

Phoenix, AZ: This timeless Southwestern backdrop is the perfect setting for family vacations, weekend adventures or romantic getaways. Each year, 22 million leisure visitors travel to Greater Phoenix. They enjoy resorts and spas infused with Native American tradition, golf courses that stay emerald green all year, mountain parks crisscrossed with trails, and sports venues that host the biggest events in the nation.

Greater Phoenix’s top attractions include are South Mountain Park and Preserve, Tempe Town Lake, Camelback Mountain and First Friday Art Walks in downtown Phoenix. Other noteworthy attractions include the OdySea Aquarium, Heard Museum, Desert Botanical Garden, Heritage and Science Park, the Musical Instrument Museum, and Phoenix Zoo. Phoenix, of course, is also the gateway to the Grand Canyon which is just 3½ hours by car.

Inspired by the red-rock walls and turquoise waters of the Grand Canyon, the Phoenix Convention Center is one of the most beautiful and sophisticated convention centers in the United States. Its interconnected campus includes three ballrooms, 99 meeting/breakout rooms, a 2,300-seat performance hall and an Executive Conference Center.

Located in the heart of downtown, you’re just minutes away from the comforts of our MACNA hotel, the cuisine and cocktails of nearby restaurants, and the nightlife of Phoenix’s urban core. The Phoenix Convention Center also boasts award-winning catering staff and a bright and airy food court features five themed eateries.

The Sheraton Grand Phoenix is a contemporary destination located in the heart of downtown. The city’s largest hotel, welcomes guests with thoughtful amenities, dynamic accommodations and a prime location near the Phoenix Convention Center.
