The South Carolina Aquaria Association (SCAA) is proud to bring you the 2018 Annual Carolina Aquatics Trade Show (CATS 2018).
Sunday, Jan 28th, doors open @ 11am.
Olin B. Sansbury, Jr. Campus Life Center, University of SC Upstate, 800 University Way, Spartanburg, SC 29303
Vendors and hobbyists from across the southeast, and beyond, are bringing a wide selection of Freshwater, Marine, and Reef livestock as well as aquaria and pond-related equipment, food, additives, and other supplies.
We have a charity fish auction planned to benefit the Greenville Children's Hospital and a GREAT selection of door prizes from our sponsors which will be drawn for throughout the day.
A portion of proceeds from all CATS go to the children of the Greenville Children's Hospital. In past years, SCAA partnered with the Greenville Children's Hospital to provide a free betta setup, including the betta(!), to children in the hospital. Additional, substantial, cash donation were also made to the hospital. There is no greater feeling than seeing a child's face light up and knowing that you had a part in putting that smile on their face. Giving back to the community is what SCAA is all about!
We have national representatives from Seachem and Cobalt attending and our 2018 sponsors include Cobalt, Seachem, Central Pets (Aqueon, Coralife, Kent), AquaUV, and Bulk Reef Supply!
If you're not a member of SCAA, please join. Membership is free and it only takes a few minutes to sign up. Thanks to all of you, our previous Carolina Aquatics Trade Shows were a huge success and CATS 2018 promises to be even bigger and better!
