Default Show advice; Booking a table, Preparing etc

Hey guys im thinking of booking tables at various shows next year for the first time. I will probably be selling just Leopard geckos.

What im after is some advice from "seasoned" exhibitors. Things such as booking the tables, display, packacking the animals for transit to the show and anything else associated with the general aspect of exhibiting at a show.

Thanks, Matt

The more experienced exhibitors seem to bring some nice cloth to lay on top of the worn and torn trestle tables to present a nice background. Some of them also have their own tilted/slanted boards wrapped in background cloth at about 30 degrees so as to catch the eye of buyers. Also noticeable that most people are increasingly using bigger boxes than cricket tubs since the last essex show.

I have only had tables at Portsmouth, they provided electrical points, but you would need heat mats and extension leads/multiplugs etc.
