The BTS show is far bigger and is a dedicated tarantula show, the biggest and the best of its kind in the UK. The AES has only a handful of traders dealing tarantulas, although there seems to be more and more every year, which is a good thing.

Things you will find at the Kempton show:
The BTS Stand - worth a visit to say hello and join.
Lee at Spidershop.co.uk - Comprehensive list of spiders for sell, including the recent Australasian imports.
A few European traders with tarantulas and stick insects.

Lots of dead butterflies and insects - after itís an entomologistís show!
Good selection of books and equipment

So 100 times bigger - nope!
Good show and worth the effort to get there a resounding YES!

Most of us (Correct me here ;) ) probally live around the South-West, South-East and the Midlands.

It makes sense to hold events such as the BTS in midlands as its right in middle of country and roughly the same distance and time to get there from both north and south end. I went to the BTS in May and takes bout 4-4.30 hours get there, with my girlfriends driving 3- 3.30 and will be the same distance and time when move up to middlesborough. So it makes sense to hold it where it is accessible from all areas.
