      Save The Date: Central Florida Koi & Goldfish Show, March 22-24, 2019

      The "Orlando Show" will be March 22-24, 2019 at the Avanti Palms Resort & Conference Center, 6515 International Drive; Orlando, FL 32819.

      For several years the show has been held earlier in March, on the weekend when Daylight Savings Time starts. But, for 2019 we had to shift to a later date to get all the space needed for the show and avoid conflicts with California shows so many of our regular vendors attend.

      The show committee has had 3 months to recover from the 2018 show and is now getting in gear with planning for 2019. It's going to be another great show!

      Show time! Set-up begins tomorrow. The official opening is 1PM on Friday, but some dealers will be arriving on Thursday afternoon and will start selling as soon as their koi are released. A very full day of seminars on Saturday (just $10 for the day). All vendor spaces are taken and every show tank is reserved. It's going to be a great show.

      Clarification: Admission is free. Just the seminar series costs $10... whether you go to one or all.

      I'm sorry we didn't receive the WWKC Friendship Awards in time for the show but I'm sure we'll have
      them ready next year. Looks like it's going to be a terrific event. I hope everyone will share pictures.

      Some may have seen that the hotel had a water main break in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Kind of hard to set up a koi show without water. But, it got fixed by afternoon and the set up is done. It just took longer than usual. All is ready..... Early arriving koi dealers had some good sales late in the day on Thursday.

      I just happen to be in Florida this week and I noticed this. I can only go on Sunday and it is a 2 hour drive.... will all the koi and vendors still be there or does everyone tend to pack up early? Would hate to spend 4 hours in the car just to see everyone packing up Sunday morning.

      Might be a bit thin. Short a few of the bigger dealers this year for various reasons

      Vendors usually stay till 2 to 3pm before they start packing on Sunday I did see a lot of nice koI and goldfish but if you come in the morning you should be able to sample some things on the show side usually around noon people start packing their koi.

      Arrive as early as possible on Sunday. Many entrants travel long distances to come to the show & begin taking their fish home around 11am or noon. By 1PM vendors are breaking down. By 3PM it is a ghost town.
