Reptile show tips the scales in New York’s favor

October 2, 2012 by  

Those who are looking for a slightly more exotic pet than the common cat or dog could be in look, with the Long Island Reptile Expo slithering its way to Melville, not far from Huntington, New York, later this month.

Visitors will be treated to a massive display of pet reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids by vendors from New England, Long Island, and other areas of New York State. Vendors will also be carrying any supplies that pet owners or soon-to-be pet owners may need to take care of their exotic pets.

Not only will there be a great range of pets from all of the nearby stores, the prices are also promised to be much cheaper than one would find going to a traditional pet store. Vendors may be selling their wares for as much as 50% of their regular retail prices.

Printing companies will probably be called on to print flyers, business cards, and other materials that will be used to promote the expo. This year, the event features over 110 vendor tables, which will make it the largest reptile expo yet, and organizers will undoubtedly want a crowd to match.

Sunday, October 21 is the date on which the Long Island Reptile Expo will be coming to the Hilton Long Island in Melville. It runs from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. Any child under seven may enter for free, while those between the ages of seven and 12 enter for $4. Children must be supervised by an adult and all adults enter for $9. Admission is cash only, though some vendors may accept credit cards. Parking for the event is also free.
