I'll definately be stopping in for this, it's actually crazy seeing this because the gf already had me buy tickets to the Baking and Sweets convention that is going on at the Schaumburg Convention center the same weekend as this! Can hit both now!

I think it is pretty cool to have an event like this coming to Chicago, I for one will be checking it out. 

Aquatic Experience – Chicago is the first show in our industry’s history to combine everything aquatic under one roof. From saltwater to freshwater with pond and aquatic animals, we’ll have it all. Consumers and retailers are invited to join us for educational seminars and a thriving show floor filled with hobbyists from entry level to the most sophisticated aquarium keepers as well as livestock and equipment experts and the industries best and trend setting manufacturers. Add in a bevy of high powered speakers you’ve heard of and read articles from but have not had the chance to meet in person and you’ve got a “must see” for any aquarist no matter what their experience level. - See more at: http://aquaticexperience.org/
