Compliance with the following regulation is mandatory.
The exhibitor is required to immediately arrange for the necessary adjustments to comply with any reports and observations received from the veterinary or exhibition staff, whether they relate to rules of conduct, housing or relating to the health of the animals on display.
If the exhibitor is a repeat offender, the organization reserves the right not to accept his participation in one or more future editions of the Verona Reptiles, at its discretion.
The veterinary service present at the fair has full authority to intervene for any criticality encountered, and acts on behalf of the organizers. At the second official warning due to excesses/violations of the aforementioned regulation, the event is definitively banned.
The tables reserved for Verona Reptiles exhibitors measure 220cm in length by 70/80cm in width. For exhibitors of mammals and birds (or for large reptiles) it is possible to book pre-assembled cages and enclosures to exhibit their animals, subject to availability and space availability.
Private exhibitors (who do not rely on a VAT number) are allowed to book a maximum of 3 tables.
The exhibition center provides a 220W industrial socket for each exhibition stand, the use of which is included in the cost of the tables. Any extension cords/multisockets must be brought by the exhibitor, as well as adapters, which however can be collected on a €10 deposit at the cash desk.
To reserve one or more tables at "VR Reptiles" is necessary:
Exhibitors who book at the VR have 10 days to pay the table bill, after which the reservation is to be considered VOID. The days become 5 in the last month preceding the event.
Once paid the tables ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.
In case of cancellation, if this is communicated WITHIN 30 DAYS of the event, the organization grants the exhibitor a credit of €45 + VAT for each table, to be used in the next edition. The credit, like the reservation, is nominal and NOT TRANSFERABLE.
The position in which the reserved tables are assigned is at the unquestionable discretion of the organizers.
The planimetric layout and the arrangement of the tables may undergo variations at any time based on the technical-logistical needs of the organisation.
Except in cases of force majeure, it is customary for the organization to give the exhibitors of the last edition the possibility of maintaining the same position of the tables in the next edition, if they intend to participate in consecutive events. This possibility is managed in the days preceding the official opening of registrations, during a special "pre-registration" period, and communicated by email.
The registration is to be considered effective only after the payment has been made.
The organization reserves the right to refuse registration if there are problems of overcrowding of exhibitors of the same product, or if there have been serious violations of the regulation in past editions. These decisions, if taken, are in any case communicated by e-mail.
The booking is NOMINAL, and the resulting invoicing refers to the data entered by the exhibitor at the time of booking.
The tables are not transferable to third parties, except for particular situations which must in any case be agreed with the organization before the event takes place.
It is not possible to book tables for third parties.
The organization will provide entry passes to the exhibitor based on the following criteria:
Each additional pass requested will cost €15.00 and will also be valid for two days.
Exhibitor passes can only be purchased by exhibitors.
Verona Reptiles offers to its exhibitors, amateur or professional breeders, tradesmen in the sector, veterinarians, advertising spaces in "Il Terrarista", the Verona Reptiles magazine. The magazine contains articles and care sheets written by experts in the sector; it is also possible to find maps of the pavilions and the exhibitor list, essential for moving around the fair. “Il Terrarista” is drawn up at each edition and distributed free of charge to all visitors and exhibitors of the fair. At the end of the event, the residual copies are attached to the orders placed on the Herp Italia e-commerce (www.herp-italia.com) and sent for free to customers.
The costs of the advertising spaces are:
The position of the advertisements cannot be chosen and is decided during the layout phase
Verona Reptiles has always made available to sector associations, free of charge, a certain number of tables that they can use to promote themselves and to sell self-financing objects. In addition, Verona Reptiles reserves a discount on the entrance ticket to members of the associations present at the fair who can prove that they are registered for the aforementioned valid for the current year.
On the occasion of the event, the associations wishing to participate in Verona Reptiles will have to propose an exclusive article written on a topic related to the sector which will eventually be published in the name of the association on social networks and on the Verona Reptiles website and in the magazine "Il Terrarista", of that or subsequent editions.
To request one of the reserved tables, at the official opening of registration and until the availability of seats reserved for this purpose is exhausted, members designated by the associations can fill in the following form by sending it to email@example.com for the request to participate in the fair.
Please note: the tables reserved in the name of an association CANNOT be shared in any way with third parties for purposes of which the Verona Reptiles organization is not aware, under penalty of removal from the event and ban from the following editions.
Attach to the email the identification method that the member will have to show at the cash desks to obtain the discount reserved for members on the entrance ticket (example of card, screen on mobile display, etc.).
Failure to do so will make it impossible to check at the entrance to the event and apply the discount.
In the event that the request is accepted, the staff will contact the association to assign the reservation and send further details.
Saturday from 10.00 to 19.00 open only for exhibitors and sector operators.
Sunday morning from 7.00.
At 19:00 on Saturday the structure will be closed and it will not be possible to access it before Sunday morning.
The organization reserves the right to assign the reserved tables to third parties if the exhibitor does not show up by 8.30 on Sunday without notifying the delay.
The fair ends at 18.30, but it will be possible to remain in the pavilion for the stand dismantling operations until 20.00.
For each animal on display, a label is MANDATORY and required, bearing the name of the breeder or farm, the scientific name of the animal, the sex, the adult size, the provenance (intended as the country of origin) and the acronym indicating the production method (CB, CH, WC, etc..).

The specification of the common name (if it exists), the age (if deductible) and the type of diet is welcome but not mandatory.

Inside the "V.R. Reptiles" it will be possible to sell and exchange animals, plants, equipment and accessories, as well as sector bibliography. Each exhibitor is to be held the only responsible for the state of health and documentation of his animals, for making them safe and for any damage they may cause to third parties.
