Reserving Your Booth Space
At the top of this page are all of the booths listed in order. If a booth has already be selected, it will be marked as out of stock. If your requested booth(s) is/are available you can add to your cart. You can proceed to checkout, but each time you make that choice you will be sent another individual invoice. It is more practical to avoid the proceed to checkout until you have selected all of your items to be purchased. When you finish placing your orders, at that time you can Proceed to checkout. At checkout you may pay online or be invoiced. Invoiced payments may be made as partial payments, if you are requesting to be invoiced. Online payments must be paid in full at checkout. You are expected to make at least a partial payment of not less than $200. (Deposits are non-refundable.) Deposits are due by December 13, 2019 and full payment is due on or before January 17th, 2020. You may call Greg Ruth at (858) 395-7882 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to discuss booth assignments.

Drainage will be provided behind each wet booth for ease of water changes during the show. Water and drainage are only available for wet booths. Aeration is a must for vendors selling fish and the electrical power drop is required. (If you have multiple wet booths, only a single power drop is needed unless you require more than 5 amps).
We have a fire hose available for filling your tank(s) after the main show tanks are filled on Friday afternoon. Two standard hoses will also be available during this time and throughout the duration of the show for water changes. Please do your water changes only before or after the show is open to the public, except in emergencies. A limited number of tanks are available for rent at $55 per tank. Vendors are responsible to maintain their own water quality throughout the show; however Jack Chapman, the Show Water Quality person, will be available to assist with your water treatment, if needed. Please contact him directly at the show. Better yet, contact him two days prior to your arrival at email@example.com.

Saturday Evening Banquet:

We have had nothing but success with this menu and it is a repeat
performance with the Brazilian Steakhouse BBQ,
with more than 60 trophies and much more!
The Activity Center is the place to be after the show Saturday night; and we will be eating with our fish. There will be over 60 trophies and the Judges will present the major awards and discuss why they picked those koi. We'll have a Koi Products Drawing and Auctions of "Select Koi Items" and there's sure to be a story or two (worth the price of admission). All this in a great setting and you’re already there!! Get your reservations in early - this evening is sure to be a hit - it sold out the last three years due to limited seating and high demand. Due to the graciousness of one of our Major Sponsors, Chien Lee of NIJIKAWA USA this meal is able to be discounted
to $60 a person.
