The biggest show ever is on its way to Melbourne
By Tony Tucceri

Every ANGFA members knows the biggest show in town will be held right here in Melbourne on Saturday and Sunday 12-13 October 2013, at Ciloms Airport Lodge, 398 Melrose Drive

Tullamarine, Victoria. There is even an AGM on Friday night for those members who wish to have their say in the national organisation.

All are welcome to the ANGFA Convention. It’s not too late, but please don’t leave it any longer. Price is a very reasonable $150 for members or $195 non-members. Even though your partner may not wish to participate, there will be a program available for them including guided tours of places of interest around Melbourne.

As for the venue, by popular demand, we have retained the same venue that was used at the last Melbourne convention (back in 2005), namely Ciloms Airport Lodge. It is located a short two minute drive from Melbourne Airport and offers all the comforts you would expect. An excellent standard and variety of accommodation is available at the venue, which can be viewed at

Ciloms Airport Lodge is located at: 398 Melrose Drive, Tullamarine, Victoria, Australia, 3043. Contact them on Free Call: 1800 819 443 or telephone: +61 3 9335 2788 or facsimile: +61 3 9335 4388 or email Make sure you mention the ANGFA Convention when booking your accommodation as this will entitle you to a substantial discount on room bookings.

The convention itself is the highlight of the calendar for every ANGFA member. It features information-packed presentations from well-known speakers from across Australia and from overseas including Heiko Bleher, Peter Unmack, Nick Romanowski, Mark Bachman, Mike Hammer, Brian Andrews, Ian Morris, Franz-Peter Muellenholz, Adam Kerezsy, John Sinclair, Phil Littlejohn and Glenn Briggs.

ANGFA members will recognise the names and be aware our speakers are experts who will talk about some very topical subjects. Come and hear the experts give their informative presentations; you'll find them fascinating as well as entertaining.

There is so much to do and see. The ANGFA auction of rare and very beautiful fishes will be conducted Saturday afternoon, conference attendance entitles you to join in the bidding. There will be a Trade Table operating the whole weekend where members can view and buy all manner of fish-related equipment, aquatic plants and other goods at a more leisurely pace. There is a convention dinner Saturday night which will be a buffet and cost is only $18 per person (partners are most welcome). There is a photographic competition too, with huge cash prizes and amateur photographers are encouraged to submit their favourite photo. It’s also a great chance for you to meet ANGFA identities in person. To encourage networking, you will have plenty of time across the weekend to talk, discuss, renew old acquaintances and make new friends.

With prizes, Special Efforts, the Trade Table, books, shirts, vests, and other gifts, it all adds to the attraction of being at the ANGFA 2013 Convention – the biggest show ever in Melbourne.

See you there.
