Sponsorship

The Rattlesnake Conservancy and Save The Snakes have teamed up for the second bi-annual Venomous Herpetology Symposium in San Antonio, Texas! This year, the symposium is hosted at the Menger Hotel in downtown San Antonio. Other activities will be hosted at San Antonio Zoo! This year, we expect 250 professionals and students from the venomous herpetological community to attend the event after a very successful first symposium.

 

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together zoos, aquariums, researchers, students, private herpetoculturists, and conservationists in a common setting to discuss the many disciplines of venomous herpetology. Topics at the symposium will include partnerships, education initiatives, training, biosecurity, snake bite management,

managing collections of venomous reptiles, venom toxinology, conservation techniques, and using social media!

This year’s symposium has attracted international speakers from all over the globe, as well as many from the continental United States. This event presents a unique opportunity for companies to promote their products and services, due to the amount of professionals and students from diverse backgrounds in herpetology attending the symposium. Sponsorship opportunities are designed to bring your company to the forefront and create a strong awareness of your brand to professionals in the venomous herpetological community, while also supporting conservation of venomous reptiles in the wild.
