Hi! Today I want to present you one unique exhibition, continuously happening for 10 years in Croatia - AkTer Fest! AkTer Fest 2014 is happening from 1st-5th October 2014. in Zagreb. We are preparing few contests and everyone from Europe can participate. I'll write about it later.. For now, let me explain who we are... AkTer fest is a humanitarian and educational exhibition of aquaristics and terraristics that gathers hobby enthusiasts and experts speakers from the fields of aquaristics, terraristics and ecology. Organized for the ninth time in a row, AkTer fest 2013 was visited by around 15.000 visitors and held on more than 2400m2, where we exhibited numerous animal species in over 50 aquariums and over 250 terrariums. Exhibitors came not only from Croatia, but also from Slovenia, Austria, Italy, Serbia, Germany... We organize guided tours through exhibition for children in kindergartens and primary and secondary schools, and NGOs who take care of children with special needs. Therefore, we have educated over 450 groups of children. AkTer fest, throughout nine years, has visited more than 60.000 visitors from Croatia and other region countries. As the part of the exhibition we offer to our visitors lectures from expert speakers in the fields of terraristics and aquaristics. In 2013 we had an honor to host the world renowned ichthyologist Mr. Heiko Bleher. Traditionally, beside the education of children and adults about proper keeping and handling exotic pets, we are particularly emphasizing the humanitarian side of the whole event in order to help and support homes for neglected children and children with special needs. With hard work and dedication of our volunteers over the years we have helped numerous organizations and made many children and families in need happy. Important thing to mention is that we are all volunteers, and we prepare and set up the whole exhibition and guide visitors trough it every year without any financial return. What gives us power to do so is our love for hobby. Below are few photos of past exhibitions.
