It's pretty much a pet fair of sorts not limited to just bettas but Asian Betta Alliance attends it. They have a registration booth and either the seminar happens there or on a separate date. There are pet expos usually around December so I'm planning to go to one.

I'm looking at show types since I've had a CT before that looked like a tattered pompom in the absence of fin damage so I want a nice even spread and if possible a cross ray. I've looked at the commercial sellers and their stocks don't really appeal to me - most have rays that are too thin or are already curling.

If I can't find the fish I want at least I can be directed to someone who has what I'm looking for.

Good CT's are hard. They are a pain to breed because the fins curl so not a market with the serious breeders. And most others seem to be into the colorful PK's these days. Got to daily watch AB.. and know what you are looking for. Nice thing is they can be had for reasonable price.

This was a recent import for me.. he is a bit mean and has been eating eggs. Got to try something else. Will breed him to a show female when they get back from Convention next week..

Why I'm trying to get in the Asian and local betta scene. Shipping within this area amongst these breeders costs about an equivalent of 3-5USD or pickups can be arranged. AB is nice but with the shipping, my money travels less.

Well.. develop your eye and learn the standards. They may or may not have show type quality.
