Add Value to Conferences, Exhibitions & Meetings

Meet The Beasts creates an extra buzz with our fun, challenging, reptile & minibeast encounters which empower delegates & visitors by helping them conquer fears & build self-confidence. We add energy & change lives.


How We Create Extra Buzz & Excitement

[Snake handling at conferences & exhibitions - Face Your Fears]Variety is the spice of life & our hands-on reptile & minibeast encounters will definitely spice-up your conference, exhibition or event by adding an extra dimension & outcome for delegates & visitors.

Who expects to encounter a 2 metre boa constrictor, called Geoff, amongst the display stands, let alone have chance to handle him, overcome fears & create an extra sense of achievement?

Who expects to discover a small room, buzzing with chatter & excitement as visitors get chance to encounter reptiles & minibeasts close-up, breaking the routine & creating a new burst of energy to sustain & motivate them?

Meet The Beasts provides stimulating activities which really engage, challenge & excite conference, exhibition & event attendees. They are fun too. Take photos & videos on your 'phone to remember the occasion & remember the personal victories.

Stuart's business background makes him at home in the environment & able to enter into discussions with visitors. His quiet, unflustered, encouraging manner draws people in & immediately sets them at ease. They then achieve more than they thought possible, changing "I could never do that!" into "I never thought I could do that!".

We work closely with event organisers to produce something unique, special & relevant.

"I just want to say an enormous thank you for last Friday night and for your fantastic support. I must say it was the best launch event I have been to in my 20 years of working at Derby Museums and your presence with your incredible Geoff and Wesley made it even more special."

JD; Visitor Service Manager, Derby Museum


Our activities at exhibitions, conferences & events divide into two:

Encounter Workshops & Sessions

[Snake, reptile & scary minibeast encounters for group sessions]Our visceral, hands-on reptile & minibeast encounter sessions enable visitors to conquer their fears, grow in confidence & re-energise.

The first meeting with our animals can be challenging, even intimidating, for some. Our extensive experience running these sessions shows that when we create a calm, friendly, non-threatening environment, participants are most receptive & can fully engage. This is endorsed by our consistently high level of customer satisfaction.

We have our own style but we deliver what you want.

Sessions may be more 'generic', tackling fears with animal encounters or they can focus relevant topics like:


We would love you & your audience to benefit from meeting our Beasts so why not chat with us.

One-to-One Encounters

[Building confidence one-to-one at conferences, meetings & exhibitions]We enable individuals to overcome their fears through meeting our reptiles & minibeasts, in person, close-up, hands-on, one-to-one.

Ideal for larger events & where group sessions are inappropriate or not possible. We mingle with the crowd, allowing delegates to approach us at their own pace, to face & overcome their fears. We usually bring Geoff, our super-friendly & cuddly Boa constrictor who loves interacting people. Our friendly, non-threatening approach helps people to step outside their comfort zone & achieve something they thought was impossible.

This is especially effective for the more nervous individuals who often take longer to approach us & benefit from 'watching at a distance' & discovering how many of their colleagues are NOT attacked, eaten or strangled.

You will know where we are by the crowd around Geoff.

Contact Meet The Beasts to discuss how we can help you.

"If you had told me this morning that I would be touching a snake today, let alone holding one, I would never have believed you. Thank you."
