HAuNTcon Heads To Houston and the Halloween & Party Expo for 2014

For Immediate Release: August 9, 2013

Contact: Leonard Pickel,

The 2014 Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow and Conference (HAuNTcon) will be held in Houston, January 25-28 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, in conjunction with the 2014 Halloween & Party Expo.

“The Halloween & Party Expo is the international event for Halloween, Costume and Party vendors,” explains Leonard Pickel, HAuNTcon coordinator and Haunt industry vetern. “It was a natural move to co-locate our conference and tradeshow to Houston so we could offer our attendees the opportunity to see new products and services featured only at this massive Expo.”
“The Halloween & Party Expo is pleased that HAuNTcon chose to join us in Houston over the dates of the 2014 Halloween & Party Expo,” said Jonathan Erwin with the Halloween & Party Expo. “Being in the same location will allow or respective attendees to take advantage of both events.”
The two shows will take place concurrently, but in separated areas within the George R. Brown Convention Center and HAuNTcon attendees  are invited to check out the Halloween & Party Expo as well as its educational sessions, tradeshow, special areas, and popular events such as the Halloween Costume Style Show.
“Each event offers a unique perspective on Halloween and being in the same center will enable us to maintain the integrity and character of each of our respective events, while enhancing the overall experience of our attendees,” added Erwin.

Halloween & Party Expo attendees interested in participating in HAuNTcon activities will have a variety of options to choose from over the multiple-day conference that includes off season tours of local haunted houses, haunted garage sale, and networking socials that include the annual Costume Ball, as well as the tradeshow floor. Topics in HAuNTcon’s unequaled education program span the spectrum from Haunted House Marketing and Business Plans, through Cheap Scares and Haunted House Design, Actor Training and Character Development, Prop building and Set Design.
“We are really excited about the new opportunities that will be available to both event’s attendees,” said Erwin. “Bringing our industries, our buyers and our sellers together in one great location is a fantastic step for everyone and we look forward to being in Houston together.”

Specially priced combo booth packages are available for vendors interested in exhibiting at both the Halloween & Party Expo and HAuNTcon.  Registration setup for the HAuNTcon tradeshow and its educational sessions are in process. Stay tuned to for details, and check out the Halloween & Party Expo at

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!
