Announcing Fragniappe 2016 - Saturday, March 5

Recommended Posts

Just realized how many different things Aquarium Specialty carries. Looking forward to seeing what all the vendors show up with this year.

Yep, they are a national wholesaler as well, I believe.  You don't get much bigger than that, folks, short of the manufacturers themselves...oh, wait, we have a few of them, too!

We're not even using half of it, currently.  We should be able to use this location for at least a few more years. 

If attendance keeps increasing, we will keep growing the show. They are part and parcel. As long as there are people to come make the vendors happy, we will keep the ratios about the same. If we get enough of a draw at some point that we need more floor space than our current venue affords then we will have a pretty monster show on our hands!

Attendance has been so much the past years, that the isle is virtually impossible to pass thru. This will surely be an indicator that more space will be needed.

We do a survey every year. Being cramped was a major complaint. I'll admit though it was by design. Research indicates that the crowded space creates a buying frenzy. Which of course the vendors love. However, it was near impossible for those with wheelchairs and strollers to get through at times. That said, this year we moved into the larger portion of the facility. Instead of six feet wide, the aisles are now *fifteen* feet wide!

And this is how we outgrow a building....lol.

 

Do we have a "host" motel to recommend? just a thought.

Absolutely. We have a Lodging link on the Fragniappe website where local hotels have set special rates for Fragniappe! Here is the direct link:

Good deal

And I see Razorback has jumped on board, good folks I have not had time to make any meets on the road to much. Hope some of them make the trip.

At this point we are just about sold out for exhibitors. We may add up to three more between now and the show though. Here's the event flyer!
