We’re all ears!

(not to mention fingers, eyeballs and skulls)

As HAuNTcon approaches, we’re trying to program seminars that are perfect for our attendees. Leonard Pickel, the original Hauntrepreneur with 35+ years of experience in over 100 Haunted Attractions, wants to know what YOU would like to learn about at HAuNTcon 2012! Each of these sessions is designed as a Monday all-day workshop. (May 7th from 8am to 4pm at $200)

So…which one appeals to YOU?

1) Getting Started in the Haunted Attraction Industry:
What makes a Halloween event successful? Attendees will learn how a winning haunt is designed; what works in haunting and what doesn’t. Success is what it’s all about!

2) Haunted Attraction Design…from the Inside Out:
Hands-on instruction about how to tackle a haunted attraction design project like an architect or Imagineer. Attendees discover the ins and outs of the “Triangular Grid System,” Leonard’s design key to engaging attraction design.

3) Computer Aided Drafting for Haunters:
Attendees explore the basics of drawing with TurboCAD Deluxe.
Turn your haunted attraction designs into three-dimensional presentations using a specialized software add-on, developed by Leonard.

4) Create a Business Plan for Your Event: A business plan is not just for getting funding! It is a living document that plots the future of your business, warns you of problems before they become critical and keeps you on the path to prosperity.
Failing to have a business plan is the same as planning to fail.

About HAuNTcon

HAuNTcon features movie & TV industry celebrities for presentations and personal appearances.  In the past we’ve hosted makeup professionals such as Brian & Nick Wolfe, Cleve Hall, and Tom Devlin.  Actors from iconic horror movies such as Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) have graced our celebrity ensemble.

If can’t get enough scares in October, try our Pre-Show overnight bus trip that includes lights on and lights off tours of local haunted events. This tour is followed by the full action tours on Friday and Sunday evenings.

The Trade Show floor, Friday through Sunday, is filled with the latest in fright services and equipment, for the professional Haunted House owner and the Halloween enthusiast alike. From horror makeup and highly detailed masks to static props and large animatronic creatures, everything a Haunter needs will be for sale, often at wholesale prices.  Stay four out Haunted Garage sale, where local haunted houses and manufacturers sell and trade anything everything haunted at this flea market/swap meet.  The sale is a great place to find killer deals.

The conference wraps up with advanced education on the Monday, following the trade show, with day-long hands-on workshops, covering everything from attraction design to creating realistic scenes of terror at your event!
