Mark your calendars for March 8th and 9th, 2024, as the Sanibel Shell Show gears up for another spectacular event at its brand-new venue, the Marriott Sanibel Harbour. The show promises an enhanced experience for shell enthusiasts, with more exhibitors, top-quality vendors, and captivating displays of artistic and scientific competitive exhibits.
The Move to Marriott Sanibel Harbour
Nestled conveniently just before the Sanibel Causeway, the Marriott Sanibel Harbour provides a picturesque setting for the show. Attendees can look forward to easy access to world-class shell exhibits, interactions with esteemed authors signing their books (many of whom are Sanibel residents), and premium shopping opportunities with marine-oriented vendors.
Supporting a Worthy Cause
As the primary fundraiser for the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club, the Sanibel Shell Show plays a crucial role in supporting conchology and malacology research, public education, and conservation efforts. With a rich history as one of the world’s finest shell shows, the event has evolved to accommodate more participants and generate essential funds. Over the years, an average of $30,000 annually has been raised, contributing to grants for groundbreaking research in water quality and local environmental issues. Recipients include educational institutions advancing the understanding of shell malacology, with significant contributions to the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Commission (SCCF).
