We are pleased to announce that the next VHS Reptile and Amphibian Expo will be held on 14 March 2015 in the EXPO HALL at the Melbourne Showgrounds. This is an exciting new venue that we tried for the first time in 2014 with many advantages over the Town Square Pavilion where we held the previous three Expos.
The EXPO HALL is about the same size as the Town Square Pavilion but is carpeted for our comfort and has no internal columns. It has better power facilities, better access and integrated air conditioning and new toilet facilities. Entry for cars will still be via one of the entrances in Langs Road and there will be a much larger car parking area closer to the actual Hall. Patrons attending via public transport or being dropped off will be able to enter via Gate 1 on Epsom Road. Further Expo information will be made available on our website and Facebook.
Sponsors, Vendors and private breeders who have already contacted us about displaying next year will have first preference on positioning etc. Others wishing to display are reminded to contact us as soon as possible to book their Expo spots early to avoid any disappointment. Sponsors are urged to contact Adam (0439 845429) promptly to reserve your position and ensure a prominent place on all our advertising posters, flyers and other material.
