HAuNTcon is an acronym for the Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow and Conference, an expo and convention “Designed by Haunters, for Haunters” of every age and level of experience. HAuNTcon brings people who love Haunted Houses, Halloween and scaring people together for a fun-filled four days and nights Haunt Tours, Education, Tradeshow and Networking, rounded out by a Haunted Garage Sale and the amazing annual Costume Ball.
HAuNTcon also moves to a new city every year to provide off season tours of area haunted houses for attendees. Haunt tours allow haunt owners, home haunters, haunt actors and Halloween enthusiasts an off-season look at local pro-haunts both in full operation and lights on backstage.
Over 40 hours of Haunt education is included in the 3 day trade show admission. Creative Sessions, Business Seminars, Hands-on Workshops, Make Up and Product Demonstrations all designed to provide information and teach attendees techniques to do what they do better, faster and easier. Topics range from Haunted House Marketing and Business Plans, through Cheap Scares and Haunted House Design, Actor Training and Character Development, Prop building and Set Design.
Whether you are a haunt owner looking for ways to make more money, a haunt actor looking for scaring tips or a makeup artist or prop maker ready to go to the next level or a home haunter looking for new inexpensive haunting techniques, or a haunt designer looking for new fright ideas, HAuNTcon is a jam packed, not to be missed, economical Haunt conference that is the best investment you can make in your haunting future. If you have a Halloween event, Haunted House or Home Haunt, or if you have a dream of someday opening a Halloween event, Haunted Attraction or yard Haunt then join others like you for more off season Halloween Fun than is allowed by law at the Haunted Attraction Tradeshow and Conference, we call HAuNTcon.
Why Exhibit at HAuNTcon 2015?!
Tradeshow: HAuNTcon® Attendees want to see, touch, examine, question, hear and evaluate the latest developments in equipment, technology, supplies, props and services relevant to the Haunt Industry. Premier booth price includes, box lunch, electrical, internet. table and chair, as well a free table at the Haunted Garage Sale.
New and Qualified Buyers: HAuNTcon® attendees pay a fee to attend the convention, which “pre-qualifies” every person on the show floor as a serious buyer and takes the financial burden of paying for the facility off the backs of the exhibitors. Being in a new city each year also brings awareness of the Haunt Industry to the general public and draws some local attendees who have never seen your products before.

Schedule: The education is scheduled before and after the tradeshow hours so that they do not divert attention from exhibitors. Trade show hours are concise, no more waiting for seminars to get out for the crowd to pick up.
