The British Herpetological Society

2024 AHH / BHS Drayton Manor Conference on reptile husbandry
Saturday, 16 March 2024 - Sunday, 17 March 2024



Following another extremely successful and very well attended conference in 2023, we've already set the date for the 2024 event and tickets can now be purchased!

Inevitably, ticket prices have had to increase a little from the 2023 event, driven solely by venue catering costs but we're confident the conference continues to offer great value together with unique opportunities to hear great speakers. We are of course extremely grateful to Drayton Manor Resort for again facilitating the event.

Our conference theme for 2024 will focus on nutrition in relation to captive herptiles. In addition there will be more general husbandry talks, focusing on specific species. We have a great speaker line up and we're delighted to be welcoming author and herpetologist Jerry Fife from the U.S. as our keynote speaker!

The 2024 conference title is `Food for Thought'
