Are these expos still worthwhile? To the exhibitor and to the buyer/browser?

Snakes4africa what a person must not lose sight of is the fact that the economy has taken a dive. Pets and especially new ones are not the highest priority when people budget for the year. The cost of reptile food and electricity has gone up so this is a further inhibiting factor. Before the expos you probably only sold a select few people in your immediate area. Now you have a wider audience and sales are better than if you had stayed at home. Those 3 or 5 thousand people that pass through the gates would not have gone reptile shopping that weekend had it not been for the expo and many of the prices in shops would not have been reduced for the weekend either.

Take cars for example. At the moment your cheapest cars (Corsa bakkies and Citi Golfs) are selling well as are the cheap second hand cars. Big cars like Mercedes C class are selling many of the new cars and are in the top 10 best sellers as are Izuzu KB's. Second hand double cabs and other bakkies are standing wall to wall and not selling. Same with second hand BMW and Mercs.

The people at the top have money and the people near the bottom have money. The in betweeners do not have that extra disposable income however I expect that to change soon.

BV, I was asking more broadly. I understand the economics, I was just probing for some feed-back from other exhibitors and browsers.

Ill always say its worthwhile because I moved allot of snakes that weekend and if it was not for the show I would still have had most of those animals.

See what I also do is when I have allot of animals I will send pricelists out to petshops and they order what livestock they need and I deliver. Before the show I send pricelists to most of the petshop around joburg and pretoria and what happend the shops didnt really want to order animals. So a week before the show I booked a stand and put a R100 or R200 on to the wholesale price and I sold allot of the animals. All the people saw how many stuff I sold so the following weeks the petshops phoned and started to buy stuff.

So I say the shows help.

Anyone else pick up mites from the expo?

I suggest you all have a look at your new guys and girls to make sure they're clean.

Hope it's all good!
