HAuNTcon is pleased to announce Darklight Precision Lighting is the title sponsor for HAuNTcon in Houston, Texas, January 23-28, 2014.
Darklight was founded in spring of 2010 as a manufacturer of special effects lighting equipment catering to the themed attraction industry. They specialize in illumination in low-light and space constrained environments where traditional theatrical luminaires are not suitable. The “Precision” series of LED fixtures were developed with compactness, safety, modularity, and ease of use in mind, allowing lighting designers to illuminate environments that were not previously possible with larger fixtures.
In 2011, they expanded their product line to include self-developed compact controllers that add a dynamic element to their luminaires.
In late 2012, they launched a new line of products catering to the professional lighting and architectural markets called the “Gantom” series. The industry recognized Gantom iQ, an ultra-compact image projector, spearheads their focus into the specified lighting market. Their award winning products have since become the “secret weapon” of many lighting designers and industry experts and have been installed in a wide range of applications including theme parks, museums, bars & clubs, casinos, and haunted attractions all around the world.

As HAuNTcon 2014 is fast approaching, we are sending out the final call for speakers. We invite YOU to share your knowledge, your experience and your expertise with our attendees!
EACH OF US has something important to share. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or new to our industry, sharing fresh, bold, new ideas is what HAuNTcon is all about!
Do a makeup demo, a show-and-tell for a great prop you built, tell us what you have learned about haunt marketing, offer a hands-on workshop, show us how you use social media, share your best room designs, teach us how you train your actors, tell us how you found funding, help us write a business plan – whatever your expertise, whatever you have learned from your experience inside or outside haunting that will help others do what they do cheaper, faster or better, we ask you to tell us about it!
It is said that public speaking can be people’s greatest fear, but I find that when I know the subject matter, really know what I am trying to say…that presenting a seminar is exhilarating!
