So I just arrived here in Detroit and it's 10:30 pm ET. Unfortunately, I had a business meeting the past couple of days in New Orleans, so flew straight here.
Needless to say, convention registration was closed, so I'll have to do that in the morning. I also missed some really good talks today. Nevertheless, there is lots more going on tomorrow through Sunday, including more talks. I quickly took the photos above. The top one is the ACA banner and the bottom two are vendor posters set up in the lobby outside the speaker rooms.
Vendors are still unpacking their wares in the Vendor Room. I also dropped by the fish room where, as usual, there are probably well over 100 tanks set up containing all species of cichlids. And of course several folks are selling fish out of their hotel rooms, with the announcement bulletin board already half full with price lists and room numbers. If you're anywhere near Detroit, come to the Sheraton in Novi and check it out.
Looking forward to catching up with several folks and will be posting more tomorrow, including more photos. Stay tuned!
