Remember this is the Halloween Custom and Party show, not the Haunt Show.

Different kind of market, vendors expect fairly large minimums.

Also, you cannot just walk in off the street to get in, you will need to provide proof you are some sort of merchant.

WWith that show you need 2 pieces of proof, but I think a vendor invite will make the process smoother.
MinionsWeb is sending out vendor invites, so if you would like one, please fill out the form here:


Of course you are then commited to spending lots and lots with me!

I will be down there on Saturday covering it for Rotting Flesh Radio and even promised Larry I'd get him some coverage for HW from RFR.

If anyone wants to meet up let me know.

Chicago show is the retail side, not the haunt side.
Last year was a disaster as I understand.
Many of the big guns pulled their support and went to the Houston show in January instead.

From what I understand many of them have come back to this show this year.
Plus there are 30% new companies that have never exhibited at any TW show.

Haunt show separate (for the moment) was actually larger than anticipated last year.

Personally I want to see both shows under one roof again.
We have a lot of cross over customers and appeal to both types of the Halloween buyers
