Buy Tickets Online For The 2014 Swfmas Reef Conference

Recommended Posts



Tickets for the 1st ever SWFMAS Dinner Banquet sponsored by NextReef on Friday April 11th are now for sale at www.reefconference.com. Buy yours soon, there are only 40 tickets (and going fast!) for the Banquet, and the guest speaker will be Murray Camp discussing a topic you won't want to miss: "The Future of the Hobby".


Also Piscine Energetics is sponsoring the Conference Lunch on April 12th, so the first 50 Lunch tickets will be %45 off, that's $10 per lunch ticket in savings. Don't forget to thank our sponsors when stopping by their booth in the Vendor Hall.


Please note that the Banquet and Lunch tickets will be sold online only as we need to provide our caterers a headcount. You can pay with PayPal or a credit or debit card through the website at www.reefconference.com/tickets.html


Starting this year, to go along with our brand new Reef Conference website, you can pay for your entry ahead of time, and save some time at registration the day of the event. As always, you will also be able to pay for entry at the event.



Hope to see you all soon at the Reef Conference (and before at our Tour of Aquariums March meeting)

Update: PayPal is currently working on identifying the cause of the error message. This may take some time.

In the meantime, tickets may be purchased from our Square Marketplace at https://squareup.com/market/swfmas

You can pay with a credit card from the marketplace.


Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Yes, a quick breakdown of the three ticket options:


General Admission - Saturday only, three speakers/topics and admission into the exhibit hall


Banquet - Friday only. a banquet dinner with speakers, platinum sponsors. Includes a presentation by Murray Camp on the state of the hobby and legislature that may impact it. Note that this is a completely different topic than his Saturday presentation (Advanced Filtration)


Lunch - Everyone can have lunch at the hotel if they choose. Piscine Engergetics is sponosoring a SWFMAS lunch. As a result, we are offering lunch at the hotel for a discounted price. To take advantage of the discounted price, lunch tickets must be purchased in advance.

PayPal is back up and running, and we left the square marketplace links on the tickets page as well so you can use either one.


Please remember that tickets are selling fast, and the deadline is approaching: we need to provide headcounts to the caterers by April 7th, so don't delay!

Names are automatically added to our lists for the lunch and banquet as well as the entry fees, we will have those lists at registration.


We do recommend that you bring a copy of the PayPal/Square receipt (either on your phone or on paper), but we have been keeping track of every ticket purchase.


You will also need to bring a current membership badge if you purchased a discounted entry. Please note that for those who are club members but don't have their new badges, we have them and bring them to every meeting. you can certainly check with me if you are unsure about your badges or your membership status.


You can contact me via PM or at by email at [email protected]
