The National Haunters Convention for 2013 is coming up quickly. It’s the first weekend in May, the 3rd through the 5th, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania. Since it’s only a brief drive from where I live in Philadelphia, I’ll be there.
If you are in the area, I hope to see you there. It should be fun! The National Haunters Convention is a tradeshow with more than 65 vendors, educational seminars, a haunted house tour, and a Saturday evening costume ball.
This is just one of the many Halloween conventions and tradeshows held throughout the country. Hauntcon is happening next week in Dallas, Texas, for example. So you should be able to find a convention near you.
This is my first industry halloween convention and my first great opportunity to meet many of those pioneers who created the haunted house and halloween industry. If you have some convention insights or are just a beginner like me leave a message below. I am particularly interested in meeting haunted house owners, so say hello if you see me.
