Regolations

Compliance with the following regulation is imperative.


Exhibitors must immediately make the necessary accommodations to comply with any reports or observations received from the veterinary or exhibition staff, whether they relate to behavioral, housing or health standards of the exhibited animals. 

 In case of serious violations of the rules, organizers can refuse booking for future editions of Verona Reptiles.

ATTENTION

We would like to remember you that intra-community (UE) movement of animals are regulated by European laws and regulations, like EC Reg. 1/2005, EEC Directive 90/425 and others.

Law enforcements (finance, forestry rangers, veterinary health), can carry out checks both inside tht shows, both on the way in Italian road and highway. Most frequent problem is lack of authorization, requirements, and health certificates about transport of animals, feed and other animal origin materials, situations that could be punished with heavy sanctions (money) and with confiscation of anmals/goods.

We invite you all to inquire to your official veterinaries (or health system of your country) and providing, if necessary, to regularize your travels, ensuring you'll have not problems during trips and during Italian shows, so to make your trips with peace of mind and security.

Obviously, all those that have complained with requirements and authorization shouldn't fear anything.

 TABLES RESERVATION


To reserve one or more tables at "V.R. Reptiles," it is necessary to make a REGISTRATION by filling out the appropriate form with personal information. Then you'll get an email with a link to validate your account.

Once registered as USER, it's possible to require from 1 to 22 tables.

Organizers will evaluate every single request, and once tables have been assigned, the EXHIBITOR receives an email with the payment link. Payment details are also available on the personal area, in the section "my tables".

Once paid, the tables ARE NOT REFUNDABLE in any way.

In case of cancellation, if this is communicated to the organizers WITHIN 30 DAYS of the event, we grants the exhibitor a credit of 40.8€ for each table, to be used in the next edition. This sum is the result of the cost of a table, from which is subtracted an amount of 8.00€ for rental, handling and secretarial expenses that the organization must still bear

Each table is 220 cm long by 70 cm wide.

Each table cost 40 Euro + vat (22%).

The position in which reserved tables are assigned is at the sole discretion of the organizers 

The organization usually give the possibility to the exhibitors of the last edition, to keep the same position of the tables at the next edition, ( consecutive events ). This possibility is handled in the days prior to the opening of booking, during a special "priority-booking" period, and communicated by email.

The details of the bank account/Paypal account into which to make the payment, are visible in the personal profile of each exhibitor, along with the amount to be paid, under "my tables," once they have been assigned.

Registration is to be considered effective only when payment has been made.

The exhibitor must pay tables within 10 days, after which the reservation is CANCELED. The deadline is reduced to 5 days in the last month preceding the event.
