I have heard a rumour, that the Melbourne event is only $40 per person. I'd just like to know why such a disparity in cost?

Apologies if my information is incorrect.

As far as I know it would be cost of event divided by the amount expected to show up, equals cost -

And keep in mind it is flying 3 experts to Australia, Venue Hire, Shirt, Baggy, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Evening Meal, Tea, Coffee, Prizes.

Well worth it - do not know how much Melbourne is or what you get or what the comparison is between the two but personally am not keen to fly to Melbourne.

I guess it just comes down to do you really want to pay $130 or $150 for the event and I am sure that so many will.

Thanks Mr Beer, you've twisted my arm... I'm coming

@The Tech Den John... How do I get a ticket from you?

Just pop into the store with the money in your hot little hand and we are happy to accept it on behalf of QCG and you will be issued with a receipt for the payment and we have the forms to just fill in that include your shirt size.

I would also think this will also be available at some of the other places that are also sponsors for the event but will allow this to be confirmed by QCG.

[MENTION=4276]the German[/MENTION] [MENTION=1584]Fish Junkie[/MENTION] - can you confirm if purchasing entry for the event the locations and also will it be possible at the upcoming auction?

Melbourne gig is $55 for non members of their local aquarium society (EDAS) and only has of the two international speakers plus one local guest speaker. Add flights and accommodation to that is no comparison on our local gig for cost$. I think they have sold out or looking to offer another round of tickets.

Juan is a great speaker with a vast knowledge of the South Americas, not just cichlids. Ad you already know. Spencer came out for VC40 few years back.

Hth, Ian

That is still only 1 third of the price…

so your down 1 speaker, as a non member wold expect to pay $100 you would think….

How come Melbourne is so much cheaper?

Not wingeing, simply asking. as a cheaper price would make it more accessible to many more people giving your group even more exposure to non members...

And yes before I get bashed around the ears, I do realise how much time effort the members of the QCG go to to organise all this and get these bloke here.

Simple asking the question.

Juan Miguel Artigas Azas author's page - The Cichlid Room Companion

Juan Miguel Artigas Azas is an aquarist in San Luis Potosí, Mexico (the very center of it). He has loved fish since he can remember and has kept them steadily in home aquariums for over 30 years now. His main interest are Central American Cichlids and Mexican fishes, but he is also very interested in any other type of fish.

Juan Miguel is the creator and editor of the Cichlid Room Companion. His love for computers and nature, together with the revolutionary development of Internet was too much for him to let the opportunity to create this page pass along. He has found that the maintenance of a real good home page is a life time enterprise, and he is ready to cope to that.

Juan Miguel enjoys travelling to the natural habitats of the fish he loves, where he obtains underwater pictures of them. He likes to observe them, trying to understand their natural history and relationships. He has managed to obtain a great knowledge on the biology and geographical distribution of the fishes in Mexico. This gives to his conferences an originality and special interest.

Juan Miguel has written many articles on Mexican and Central American Freshwater fish, mainly on cichlids, for several club and aquarium publications. He has also been honored with the invitation as lecturer in fish oriented conventions in several countries, including Mexico, United States, Belgium, Canada, England, Netherlands, Norway, France, Italy Sweden and Germany. Juan Miguel is part of the American Cichlid Association - Marineland speakers program.

Juan Miguel has been awarded the Guy Jordan Retrospective Award 2008 by the American Cichlid Association. The maximum honor this association gives to people who has done extensive contributions to the International Cichlid Hobby.
