HAuNTcon 2014 Exhibitor Form

Why Exhibit at HAuNTcon 2014?!

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.

Haunt Tours: HAuNTcon® moves to a new city each year and offers once in a lifetime opportunities experiencing Halloween Events that Haunters have heard about but never had a chance to attend and drives attendance to the convention.

Education: HAuNTcon® offers over 50 hours of educational seminars, hands-on workshops and product demonstrations to introduce your company’s products— the education is designed to help Haunters make more money so they can buy more product from you!

Networking: Social mixer and networking opportunities, like the Annual Costume Ball, are included in the premier booth price to give you the opportunity to meet and get to know industry business owners and operators in a relaxed social atmosphere that puts the fun back into haunting!

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.

Why Houston?!

Houston offers it all, from international cuisine to world-class museums and theaters. PLUS, we are joining forces with the 2014 Halloween & Party Expo in the same building during the same dates. This one move could quadruple attendance to this year’s show through cross promotion and the double draw of both shows.

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!
