SOS² Reptile Expo 2013 - Gauteng

Postby Bushbaby » Sun Mar 17, 2013 9:50 pm

I am pleased to announce that the next SOS² Reptile Expo will be held on the 4th & 5th May 2013, at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park, once again.

Should anyone be interested in exhibiting, we have budget stands available which are affordable. Please contact me at bookings@reptileexpo.co.za for more information.

We look forward to seeing you there!! We should be distributing flyers amongst the petshops within the next week or two.

This will be my second time exhibiting at the Joburg SOS Expo.

Very excited will have some snakes for sale in addition to reptile products.

I am certain Emperors palace will be packed with herpers on the 4th & 5th of May.

Unfortunately there will not be another photography competition this year. Last year it was to celebrate our 10th Expo (in Gauteng). Possibly I will look into it again for next year.

Any teasers from possible livestock that will be on sale? Why does nobody advertise in advance so that we can know to bring R5000 instead of R500. I know that there will be ATM's outside but what about people that want to buy something nice and its more than their dily limit? Come on people... Where is all the teasers?

Just a quick question Heidi, although I will not be having a stand at the Expo, is there a problem with me meeting someone and delivering snakes to them at the Expo.
These snakes are exotics.

We dont have a problem if the transaction is legal and the snakes are not taken out and shown around. They should also not be in unsafe containers but NO VENOMOUS EXOTICS are allowed to be traded with unless one of the organisers is present.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Foxticity, I've got credit card facilities, so I expect you will be buying a lot of boas from me then. hee hee

Gargoyle, I am glad you can make it. This is a proper reptile expo and the biggest of it's kind in SA. We look forward to having you there.

Hello Heidi

Thanks for the info. The trade is perfectly Legal. I will be delivering to someone from another province. they are Rat Snakes, so there is no problem there.
The snakes will be in Individual non see through containers, within a larger container.
