 WGC 2003

 

 

  The next WGC will be held by Clube dos Criadores de Guppy do Brazil between 20th to 23 Th November. We contracted with a wonderful place called Orchid Garden, near  Jose Menino Beach. This zoobotanical garden was built in 1945, with an area of 22,240 m2 that shows several kinds of species from the “ Mata Atlantica”. Moreover, there are many birds, which come and go freely inside the park. A lake is situated in the central area, which receives migratory visits of  aquatic birds. You can also view hundreds of species of Brazilian orchids and ornamental plants.

The show place will have 500 tanks, natural lighting in a large area, where we will schedule guppy lectures.  The WGC will also be supported by sponsors from the top ornamental fish industries and pet shops.  Video recordings are planned for all show activities.  You can expect a great and entertaining weekend!

 The Brazilian clube with all members are working to make the best ever  guppy show in Brazil. Our host city, Santos is a tourist city which possesses one of Brazil’s major harbors. It is only 1 hour by car from the city of Sao Paulo, a major city in Brazil.  We have lot of places to visit and beautiful beaches near the show place. The host hotel , Hotel Praiano, is very affordable for everyone. This hotel is 2 blocks from the show place, 50 meters from the beach and 90 km from the international airport.
