What Is HAuNTcon
HAuNTcon is an acronym for the Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow and Conference, an expo and convention “Designed by Haunters, for Haunters” of every age and level of experience. HAuNTcon brings people who love Haunted Houses, Halloween, and scaring people together for a fun-filled experience that includes Haunt Tours, Education, Tradeshow, and Networking.
Past exhibitors in the tradeshow have featured haunt industry heavy-weights such as VFXcreates, Midnight Studios, and Pale Night. Reasonable booth fees that include electrical and internet, allow up-and-coming Haunt Industry exhibitors to get cost-effective exposure to a fanatical fan base.
HAuNTcon is heavily attended by pro-haunters and promotes home haunters, haunt actors, and Halloween enthusiasts of all kinds.
Over 40 hours of Haunt education is included in the 3-day trade show admission. Creative Sessions, Business Seminars, Hands-on Workshops, Makeup, and Product Demonstrations are all designed to provide information and teach attendees techniques to do what they do better, faster, and easier. Topics range from Haunted House Marketing and Business Plans, through Cheap Scares and Haunted House Design, Actor Training and Character Development, Prop building, and Set Design.
HAuNTcon is a jam-packed, not to be missed, economical Haunt conference that is the best investment you can make in your haunting future. If you have a Halloween event, Haunted House, or Home Haunt, or if you have a dream of someday opening a Halloween event, Haunted Attraction, or Yard Haunt, then join others like you for more off-season Halloween Fun than is allowed by law at the Haunted Attraction Tradeshow and Conference, we call HAuNTcon.
