The Mid-Atlantic Marine Aquarists Society (MAMAS) would like to invite you to the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Marine Aquarium Expo (MAMAX) located in Virginia Beach, VA on October 17, 2015 from 10:00am-3:00pm. MAMAX is an opportunity for reef aquarists in the mid-atlantic region to come together for a day of saltwater hobby exposure, education, conversation, contests and family fun. With over 20 vendors from across the country, raffles and contests throughout the day, we have something for everyone.

General admission is just $5 and kids 12 and under are free. Limited quantities of VIP tickets will be available as well. VIP tickets get you in a full hour at 9am before general admission to meet vendors, cherry pick stock and pick up exclusive deals. You’ll also get a t-shirt, MAMAS stickers, a magnet and 5 raffle tickets. VIP tickets are $35. More information on tickets, vendors, sponsors and accommodations will be coming soon.

Remember, a portion of our proceeds will go to local environmental charities!

VIP tickets are almost gone... and we have a big incentive for you to grab yours this week. We're giving away a full sheet of raffle tickets in the VIP bags!!! That's right, 25 tickets. That's a $25 value on top of the $5 EARLY admission, a $20 shirt, stickers, a magnet, issue of Coral Reef Magazine, issue of Reef Hobbyist magazine and tons of other sponsor discounts goodies. GET YOUR TICKETS THIS WEEK, support the charity and show our vendors some love!

Hi! Just purchased my VIP ticket! I do have one question though. About the raffle tickets. I've seen the advertisement on the page says you get 25 tickets but when I looked at the details on my VIP purchase it says I get just 5. Is this just a typo or something that hasn't been updated yet? Thanks!

09/16/2015, 09:57 PM
We originally only had 5 included but to increase the incentive to buy early we bumped it to an entire sheet of tickets. I can't update the original thread here. Most people that come will buy $25 or so of tickets. Add in $5 admission and you are almost at $35. Now add in the shirt, magazines, swag and vendor discounts it's a killer deal. Please introduce yourself.. I'll be running around like crazy and thank you!

Actually I was referring to the description page on the actual website.


If you click on "More Info" it still says 5 raffle tickets... Anyway, just wanted to point that out. See ya there! I'm bringing my cooler :thumbsup:

Due to the amount of inquiries we have had this past few weeks, we have decided to put the general admission tickets online as well. You can still get tickets at the door but for those of you coming form out of town we're adding this option so that you're sure to get in. We have a handful of VIP tickets left as well with just 2 weeks to go! http://mamas.ticketleap.com/mamax2015/

We are down to just a handful of tickets as of today! Thank you for the support! To make things fun and to blow out VIP ticket sales, we've decided to give away a few things to the person who buys the 100th ticket. We have a bunch of fun stuff from Fluval, ********* and MAMAS! Get yours today and we'll announce the winner next week! http://mamas.ticketleap.com/mamax2015/
