|Vendor Rules & Information|
|Are there any restrictions on the products or animals that can be sold at Repticon?
All animals must be healthy and legal to sell within the state. Vendors who intentionally and repeatedly offer illegal or unhealthy animals for sale may be banned from future shows.
Frozen Feeders: Feeder Source is the exclusive provider of frozen feeders at all FL, SC, NC, GA, TN, LA, MD, MS, Eastern TX Repticon shows, and select shows in other states as indicated by their inclusion on individual show vendor lists. No other vendor may offer frozen feeders, promote frozen feeder sales, or bring a freezer into any Repticon show within these regions without the approval of Feeder Source. Live feeder rodents may be sold by any vendor where local law permits.
Feeder Insects: Premium Crickets is the exclusive provider of feeder insects at all Repticon shows in FL, GA, AL, NC, and SC. FeederSource is the exclusive provider of feeder insects at all Repticon shows in TN, LA, MD, MS, Eastern TX Repticon shows, and select shows in other states as indicated by their inclusion on individual show vendor lists. No other vendor may offer feeder insects at these Repticon shows without the prior approval of Premium Crickets or Feeder Source depending upon which company retains the exclusive at a given show.
Dry Goods: No vendor has dry-goods exclusivity at any Repticon show. To avoid excessive duplication of product at a particular show, the number of vendors offering more than a table of new dry-goods will be capped at two or three for some Repticon shows, varying by market (click here for a list of limits by market.) "Dry Goods" are considered to be products utilized inside reptile enclosures to maintain reptile pets, such as substrate, vitamin supplements, light bulbs, etc. Aquariums, enclosures not packaged with other dry goods, screen enclosures, oversized bales of aspen or bedding, custom-built enclosures, t-shirts, and other reptile merchandise are NOT considered dry goods. This cap applies to dry-goods being purchased from a distributor or manufacturer for retail sale. Any vendor may offer dry goods that they or their company produces themselves without restriction. Any vendor at a show with dry goods restrictions but without a dry goods slot must limit their dry goods to one table, and the dry goods offered must make physical contact with the tabletop (no racks or shelves may be used to expand the dry-goods offered.)
