Pre Show Registration:
Exhibitors need to be registered with FMBA so the WoPE knows who to give the exhibitors passes to, and so name badges can be made. Those who do not pre-register will have to pay daily admission when they arrive.
Mice will be assigned numbers and show tags for the show cages will be handed out to affix to your cage.
During quarantine you may not bring in any new animals, of any species during quarantine. This includes live feeders.
No unexplained deaths.
No signs of illness, disease, or parasites.
This show is a unique opportunity to interact with the public. The World of Pets Expo invited us to be an education booth at their expo, and provide entertainment. Good behavior and a positive reception from the public will determine if we are invited back next year. We are there to provide education to the public about mice and the care and exhibition of mice.
• Keep conversations PG, friendly, and family fun.
• All mice must come in fresh cages that are clean and tidy. Preferably in aquariums or large kritter keepers. Presentation is important.
• No selling animals or merchandise to the public. Trading amongst members should be done before/after expo hours or quietly during the show. Ideally sales should be prearranged and monies exchanged outside the expo.
• Refrain from allowing the public to handle the mice. There will be dogs, cats and other pets on leashes.
You do not have to stay at the show booth the entire day. There will be many vendors at the show selling pet supplies, art, and other stuff. We do encourage people to stay throughout the day to keep the booth looking full and active.
When you arrive, if you are pre-registered, please enter through the Vendor/Exhibitor entrance. You will need to check in. They will stamp your hand or give you a bracelet. When entering/exiting the expo please be sure they can see the stamp/bracelet.
They will open the hall to exhibitors/vendors in the morning before the public is allowed in, during this time we will need to setup. We will have a short period of time to do health inspections before the hall opens.
