MACE 2019 2-3 NOVEMBER
Het daverende succes van de jubileumeditie van Vivarium was het kantelpunt voor een nieuwe fase van ons evenement. Op de nieuwe locatie Autotron waren alle elementen vertegenwoordigd van hoe wij ons Vivarium voor hadden gesteld toen wij dit project 10 edities terug gestart zijn. Zo is er een zeer grote zeewatervertegenwoordiging ontstaan, die als Marine Aquarium Conference of Europe met elkaar 1 hal volledig vult. Zoetwateraquariums, terrariums en paludariums komen allen in de grote hal aan bod. Daarbij zijn o.a. de Dutch Shrimp Contest en het Coleopteraplein inmiddels niet meer weg te denken en bleek de Discuskampioenschappen een zeer welkome aanwinst voor het totale concept.
Maar bovenal is Vivarium inmiddels uitgegroeid tot het wereldwijd grootste evenement voor de hobbyist. Het is een groot 2-daags feest waar men gezamenlijk kan genieten van alle mooie aspecten van onze hobby. Of men nu komt voor de vele standhouders, de wedstrijden, presentaties, workshops, tentoonstellingen of simpelweg alleen om inspiratie op te doen: je moet Vivarium mee beleven!
Als onderdeel van Vivarium 2019 is ook de Marine Aquarium Conference of Europe weer volop aanwezig! In samenwerking met De Jong Marinelife brengen wij topmerken en topwinkeliers samen om de zeeewaterhobbyist het beste van de hobby te bieden. Antwerpse Zee Aquarium Club (AZAC) zal daarbij tevens weer een uitmuntend programma van gastsprekers voorzien.

The enormous success of the anniversary edition of Vivarium has been the turning point towards the next level of our event. The original ideas and goals we had set ourselves when we started with Vivarium 10 editions earlier, where fully met at the new venue Autotron. A large number of marine exhibitors where finally present and combined under the name Marine Aquarium Conference of Europe they filled an entire hall. Freshwater aquarium, terrariums and paludariums were combined in the largest hall. There, amongst others, the Dutch Shrimp Contest and Coleoptera Corner already formed an important part of the concept and the Discus Championship has proven to be a very good addition to that.
But above all Vivarium has grown to be the biggest event in the world for hobbyists. It actually is a 2-day feast where all can celebrate the many wonderful aspects our hobby has to offer. No matter what drives you to the event; either the many exhibitors, contests, lectures, workshops, show aquariums or simply just to be inspired: Vivarium is the place to be!
