This year there have been many past-breaking announcements: above all the Petsfestival has focused on its audience proposing, for the first time in its history, an incredibly vast and heterogeneous conference program with guests from the United States and England. Moreover, the exhibitions have also increased, counting on at least 3 different areas of interest. We obviously focus on the aquarium hobby, but PetsFestival represents much more.

Aquarium events of PetsFestival 2018
The second edition of the Goldfish Experience offers a careful selection of goldfish specimens presenting, in a dedicated pathway, the most common forms of Carassius auratus auratus and the ones that are rare and unusual.
Pond set-up course
The course will be held by the OASE Company and the “Laghetti Che Passione!” Portal in collaboration with La Mangrovia store.
The DaniReef Booth
As usual, our staff will be present at the event, the difference with past years is that we will be present with a small booth, so we are waiting for you to come by and have a chat, of course, when there aren’t any conferences. We are ready to provide you with the best possible report of the PetsFestival. We will show you who participated and what they brought to show. As usual, we will try not to forget anyone. But if any company would like to invite us for any particular event, do not forget to contact us. We will definitely be at the event listed above! If you want you can show up with our shirt, you can find out how to order it here.
Aquarium hobbyist groups are back at the PetsFestival
This year several aquarium groups booked in to have their own little stand at PetsFestival. In pure alphabetical order the following groups will be present, with the great return of AcquaPortal:
- ACF – Acquario Come Fare
- Alba (Caridine)
- Laghetti che passione
- ReefArt International
There are many exhibitors, and although there is no rush for the purchase of various items, things change for the purchase of corals. In that case it would be better to arrive early on Saturday morning to be among the first ones to choose corals. In events such as this, those who arrive first will have the best choice. Do not think you can come Sunday afternoon hoping to find the most beautiful corals, because those, most likely will have been sold on Saturday morning.
