Reef-A-Palooza Orlando 2019

Come Join Us for Our 6 Year Anniversary!

Reef-A-Palooza Orlando takes place April 6 & 7, 2019 at our new venue, the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. This marks the 6th year anniversary of the show in Orlando, Florida.

Reef-A-Palooza is a two-day event with over 140 of the industry’s leading coral, fish, and dry goods vendors. The main purpose of the show is to provide an enjoyable, positive atmosphere that promotes education and product knowledge for everyone, from the beginning hobbyist to the advanced hobbyist. Participating exhibitors range from large manufacturers and retailers and small livestock sellers.

Broaden your reef knowledge. There will be educational speakers scheduled both Saturday and Sunday. The speaker line-up includes author and owner of Two Little Fishies, Julian Sprung, marine biologist and filmmaker Colin Foord of Coral Morphologic, aquatic innovator and author Dr. Timothy Hovanec of Dr. Tim’s Aquatics, and marine biologist/lead caretaker of the amazing SeaWorld Orlando reef tanks, Justin Zimmerman. Come out and learn something new.

Don’t miss the huge raffles on Saturday and Sunday, with over one hundred items to raffle off, there is something for everyone.

If traveling from out-of-town, come and stay at the show venue. The luxurious Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, the perfect destination location, is just minutes from SeaWorld, International Drive, Universal Studios, and the Disney theme parks. Make yourself at home in one of their spacious guest rooms, the largest in Orlando.
