Competition Tank for Your Client’s Fish

The Atlanta Koi Club provides show tanks for dealers who sell fish to be entered into the show. Entrants not showing other fish in the show must register their own fish. There is a $5 charge per individual which is waived for Atlanta Koi Club Members. Fish must be in the community tanks by 9:00 am Saturday. No fish are to be placed in a tank until registration is completed. This includes the digital photo. The actual owner of the fish must be present at the time of benching.

Since this is a hobbyist-only show, all fish entered must be owned by and accompanied by the registered entrant. Koi or Goldfish dealers or their employees, even part time or informal fish dealers are not allowed to show fish.


Vendor Appreciation Night

AKC will showcase its famous southern hospitality with a Vendor Appreciation Night on Friday night from 7 PM to 10 PM. The event will feature excellent food, beer, wine, and assorted non-alcoholic beverages. This is a great opportunity to meet the judges, mingle with other Koi hobbyists, vendors, club members and exhibitors.

We encourage the vendors to be open for business to give attendees an early chance to shop.


Raffle Donations

Donations of raffle items are welcomed. Raffles are held throughout the weekend with the proceeds benefitting the Atlanta Koi Club to assist in deferring the cost of the show. If you prefer, your donation may be designated to be auctioned during the Awards Banquet on Saturday night.

Vendor donations are greatly appreciated for either purpose. If you wish to donate discount certificates for use at your booth the AKC will have these available at the show. These certificates provide you with a great exposure at a minimum cost. The Atlanta Koi Club is a non-profit organization so donations may be tax deductible.


Honoring Koi Bucks

The Koi Bucks program is a way to encourage members to generate additional sales with the show vendors. The Atlanta Koi Club has issued Koi Buck certificates to many club members as rewards during the year. Each new certificate is in a $10 denomination, there may be some older $20 and $30 Koi Bucks’. We ask each vendor to honor the Koi Buck certificates for their face value. A club member may have more than one Koi Buck. Please bring the Koi Bucks to the club booth where we will exchange them for cash. We will make the cash exchange only for registered vendors.


Trophy Sponsorship

Sponsorships range from $25 to $200. The names of all sponsors will be listed on the AKC website, unless you request anonymity. We will also list a clickable link to your website, if applicable.  One complimentary ticket to the Banquet will be given for each $100 in sponsorship costs (this can be a single award or a combination), so that you can present your sponsored trophies at the Awards Ceremony.
