Reef-A-Palooza 2020 Chicago Show Canceled


Keep reefing and stay heathy my friends! Below is the official announcement from the Reef-A-Palooza folks…

Due to the continuing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic, and our concern for the continued health and safety for our exhibitors, attendees, and staff, our team at Reef-A-Palooza has made the difficult decision to cancel the Chicago 2020 show.

The show will now take place October 16-17, 2021 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center. Hotel reservations booked at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel through the Reef-A-Palooza group rate will be cancelled for your convenience with no penalty.

Please do not call the hotel to cancel your reservation. You will receive a cancellation notification email directly from the hotel. This has been a difficult decision for us all, as we were looking forward to bringing the reefing community together.

We look forward to you joining us for Reef-A-Palooza Chicago 2021. Thank you for your continued support of the show and we wish for everyone to stay safe and healthy.

And as I’m sure you have heard by now, the Reef-A-Palooza show in Orlando was canceled about 2 weeks ago.
