Our event system debuted last weekend at the Tinley Park NARBC. Hundreds of attendees around the venue used our interactive vendor list and map to find exactly who and what they were looking for.
Today we are excited to announce the addition of the Show Me Reptiles & Exotics expos to our event list. Show Me's expo locations include almost two dozens states. This weekend there are four such events in Kentucky, Georgia, Rhode Island and Iowa. Check out our event list to see who will be vending these shows.
In addition, we have another kind of event starting this Friday. In our forums, we are hosting our second fundraising auctions in aid of Danielle Stevens of Geckoholic, who lost everything in a fire earlier this month. Some amazing members of our community have donated a bunch of beautiful animals and items to help get Danielle back on her feet.
Be sure to visit the MorphMarket Reptile Community forum to donate, or on Friday, March 25th to take part in the auctions.
If you are interested in having your events on MorphMarket please contact us at [email protected]. Visit the FAQ to learn more about the system. We have many more features planned, so look for updates.
Profile pages on MorphMarket are now available to other types of organizations beyond breeders. This includes manufacturers, content creators, expo organizers, industry advocates, and more.
We add this functionality to support our events system. Currently, one can create an organization profile when self-registering for an expo. Orgs who have Basic membership get Enhanced Event Listings which include a link to their profile, among other things.
Here a few examples:
Useful features so far include contact info, description, video, badges, community posts and events. These pages can also gain followers, which will have more value later this year.
In the future, we'll make it part of our normal onboarding process.
Please check out our Winter Newsletter to get caught up on everything we've been doing for the past few months and take advantage of all these new features.
Since the initial release of Morphpedia back in October, our team has been hard at work to bring as much information as possible together for the whole community to explore and learn.
We recently hit the 500 Published Articles mark, which is an amazing milestone. At this point 21 categories are represented, and we have covered about 50% of the traits listed in our marketplace.
This wouldn’t have been possible with the outstanding amount of help that has been contributed so far by members of our community, we are extremely grateful for their assistance in our mission.
Along the way we have gotten input from breeders from all around the world, to hear their first-hand stories about the history of traits. We have also connected with expert geneticists from multiple fields to help incorporate a whole wealth of information to introduce features such as "Complexes" and "Tags" to help herpers understand how traits interact with one another.
MorphMarket Events gives the herp community a calendar of industry expos and other events with rich vendor listings.
This a tool to be used both before AND during events.
It will help you answer questions like:
- What expos are happening near me?
- Who is vending at this expo?
- Where are they located in this huge room?
- Who can sell me a species that I'm looking for?
- What do the parents of this animal look like?
- And more!
Vendors and Event Organizers, please read our FAQs which explain how you can register.
We talked about MorphMarket NFS quite a lot pre-launch, but we didn't say much about this one. We hope you enjoyed the surprise.
