Vendor Sponsorship

At The San Jose Reptile Show, we have always been proud to offer our vendors the most affordable show you will attend. During 2019, the SCC Fairgrounds set themselves on a path to profitability, and in doing so they reevaluated their facility pricing. They have doubled the price we will pay, but we will only be passing a moderate increase to our vendors. This now puts us a little higher than some of the smaller Bay Area Shows, but we are still the most affordable larger show. We will be continuing our vendor sponsorship program. Your voluntary contribution as a sponsor will directly impact how much we can allocate to increased marketing, and your business will be featured more prominently as a “Thank you” for your support.

Platinum Vendor – $500 Contribution 

Gold Vendor – $250 Contribution 

Silver Vendor – $150 Contribution 

Bronze Vendor – $50 Contribution

Booth Sharing Policy

We are well aware that some vendors like to share booths to help maximize their profits and minimize their risk. Our booths are more than competitively priced, and include electricity, so we request that vendors wishing to share space pay an extra $35 per vendor added to their assortment. Please list the names of additional vendors that will be co-occupying your booth so we can put them on the vendor list and provide an additional vendor badge, and parking pass for your group. Any vendor found to be in violation of the booth sharing policy will be asked to pay the sharing fee of $35 plus $15 penalty for each vendor not listed on the application. This will be enforced for 2020.

*Electricity: Each booth has permission to connect to Fairgrounds power outlets along the walls/columns at no additional charge. Please bring your own extension cords (at least 50-100ft depending on your location), power strips and super sized tape to take advantage of our generous electrical policy.

Non-Profit Booths: There will be spaces available to a select number of verified non-profit organizations. Please contact us for details.

Escape The Ordinary

New Vendors are always welcome, but space is limited. For 2020 priority will be given to new vendors who focus  on something unique. We already have a ton of ball pythons and crested geckos, so help us "Escape the Ordinary." Send us a New Vendor Inquiry if you are interested in joining us.
