British Tarantula Society

The BTS Exhibition is an event like no other in the world. It is a chance for spider lovers everywhere to meet, buy, sell and generally talk about spiders with like-minded people. Last year we housed around 30,000 tarantulas under one roof and had over 1200 visitors to the event. This year we expect there to be more traders than ever as we have increased our floorspace from 900sqm to 1300sqm.

The 2014 BTS Exhibition will be held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry in the E.ON Lounge located on the second floor.

It is a versatile, column free room. It boasts natural daylight, high ceilings, inbuilt Audio Visual facilities and a magnificent view of the pitch. The EON Lounge is the ideal location for the all new BTS Exhibition.


The BTS Exhibition is open to the public. You do not have to be a member of the British Tarantula Society to visit the exhibition.

No pre registration is required for the event.


This year we expect exhibition space to the new venue to be at a premium. If you wish to trade at the exhibition we have a number of ways that you can apply for tables. Please e-mail - or visit the BTS website , where you can download and complete a registration form.

BTS Night Before Party

If you are visiting the BTS exhibition why not make a weekend of it and join us for the legendary “BTS Night Before” get together. The “BTS Night Before” event is open to everyone to attend and is an opportunity to meet up with some of the exhibitors, visitors and the BTS Committee. This year we are hoping to be able to host the evening in one of the private bars at the Ricoh Arena.
