    Just under 3 weeks to go and look at the list we already have for 2011!! We are 5 tables away from selling out. This is a show that you will not want to miss. We never would have imagined we would have over 149 tables booked. Better act fast if you want to become a part of this show. If you would like to become a vendor, please email info@wcre.ca right away as we are down to 5 tables left. Table fees are now $100/table Ahhh we can't wait... If thought last years show was good, you will be amazed this year with all the changes that we have made. Thanks to all the vendors and sponsors who have got behind this show so early. This show is going to be huge. We have a maximum of 154 tables to fill the current layout. If you are wanting to vend, you will want to book soon to confirm you get a spot. We have a feeling that this will be sold out in the next few days. Act fast if you are needing a spot

    Thanks also to Zoo Med for signing on as the WCRE 2011 Main Show Sponsor. It is great to have one of the biggest manufacturer and suppliers of reptile supplies in North America. We couldn't be more excited.

    Info for those wondering where this show is:


    Announcing the 2nd Annual WESTERN CANADIAN REPTILE EXPO Saturday August 27th, and August 28th 2011 at the Capri Hotel and Conference Centre in Red Deer Alberta! You heard right we are moving to a better location to better serve the needs of our vendors and our patrons.

    Western Canada's largest Reptile Expo will bring some of the biggest vendors and tons of reptile breeders and suppliers from across Canada to Red Deer. Reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates as well as all the supplies you could ever think of will be on display and ... sale. We also hope to have some special guests on hand (TBA)

    After the success of our first show at the end of August 2010 an announcement was made that the show would continue for years to come. The contracts have been signed and we are here to stay.

    "As this was our first show, we were blown away by the quality vendors and the interest generated by the public at the show," promoter Greg West said. "We now have plans to revamp certain aspects of the previous show and make it even better in the years to come. Our first step was changing venues to the Capri Hotel and Conference Centre which we felt would better fit the needs of our vendors as well as make it more convenient to the patrons who are coming from out of town.."

    Vendor and Sponsor list have been updated. Still sponsorship opportunities available and the sooner you sign up the more advertising you get.

    Book today for the venodor list as well to get your business name out there and get as many presales before the show that you can.

    Vendor list has been updated. This show is going to be huge. This is the most vendors that we have ever seen in Western Canada and we are so excited to be hosting it.

    We have almost got this show fully booked. If you have tentatively booked, it is best to pay for your tables soon to confirm that you have your tables as we are close to starting a waiting list.

    Also it would be recommended to reserve rooms. The hotel does have lots, but it would suck if you weren't able to get a room there as the plan is to have everything in one place.

    See you all there. Can't wait...

    The vendor list has been updated. We are almost sold out. I know we could book 130 tables for sure, but would have never thought we would sell out, and it is beginning to look that way. We are so stoked for this show and so are a ton of other people as vendors and as attendees coming to buy animals/supplies.

    We have a great representation basically Canada Wide and some vendors that have never vended out west. Make sure to mark the dates on your calendars as you will be kicking yourself if you miss this show. Hope to see you all there.

    More vendors added. Who's getting excited? Have your hotel rooms booked yet? The talk about this show is starting to heat up on Twitter and Facebook. Make sure to spread the word to all of your friends.

    Follow us on Twitter at @WCRERedDeer (http://twitter.com/#!/WCRERedDeer) or on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/groups/110721422349577/)

    The more the word gets out the better.

    The advertising is in full swing already, and we are starting to send out the posters to those who have volunteered to post the posters for us. Thanks to all of those who volunteered. A big part of the success of the show will be because of you.

    There are a few tables left if anyone is still looking to book.

    See you all at the show.
