      Central Florida Koi & Goldfish Show 2017

      Mark your calendar now for the Central Florida Koi & Goldfish Show 2017.

      When: The dates are March 10-12, 2017 (with early vendor set-up beginning at Noon on Thursday, March 9).

      Where: NEW LOCATION: DoubleTree Hotel in Orlando at Kirkman Rd. & Major Blvd. (across from Universal Studios).

      Those reading closely will realize that I have inserted "& Goldfish" in the show title. We added a goldfish show as a 'nice little extra' a few years ago. But, in 2015 it was largest in the country, and in 2016 grew by around 50%. There were about as many goldfish in competition as there were koi, and we drew some attendees to the goldfish show who would not have come 'just' to see koi. Personally, I've not quite figured out the attraction of intentionally deformed interbreeding. But, after seeing some tiny guys fly out of a sale tank at $250 each , it is clear that I'm lacking in my appreciation of the finer points. So, although it is officially CFKS, for promotion purposes, I'm starting to refer to CFK&GS. ....We'll see how folks react.


      PS… Really mark your calendar. It is 9 months away, but we don't want to lose your attendance because you scheduled a Florida vacation the wrong week!

      ...Yes, I'm posting 9 months ahead of the show. But, we actually start working on each show more than a year in advance. The site, meeting room reservations, etc. were locked down for 2017 before the 2016 show was held, but announcing 2017 dates last January would have confused folks. Every year I hear from someone that they were intending to attend, but did not have it calendared and made a conflicting commitment. So..... maybe 9 months advance notice is long enough ahead of time?? ....The more the merrier.

      It is free of charge but, watch this thread, there is NO show site right now and they are looking for another one. Once they have it I am sure an update will be posted.

      It's not the worst thing. Traffic in that area always sucked and parking was a bit crazy. I-4 is now under massive expansion as well. Something near the airport would really make it easier for travelers and dealers. Hopefully it works out well for the show planners.

      Hey how about the Vistana Resort right across the street (practically). They have a really nice indoor courtyard perfect for a show. Nice clean rooms...

      The Vistana Resort is not where the show is going to be. I got an e-mail from MikeM confirming the new location but I think he should post the information.

      I never said it was at the Vistana Resort. If people would read my statement. I said " hey, HOW ABOUT..."
      I have no connection, whatsoever to the orlando koi show. I was only making a suggestion for a venue as they seemed to be scrambling for one. Perhaps when the venue is decided on, it will be posted here asap by the op.

      I know you didn't but koi kichi did think it was so and I posted this for them.
