MHC Introduces the Quiet Zone!

The show floor at the Midwest Haunters Convention is filling fast and we will not be adding any more spots to the 2011 floor plan so get your space now!

There are some choice locations available now because we have also introduced the Quiet Zone. This are will be devoid of all noise making props, music, and fog. Many vendors have made the move back to this area freeing up other spaces near the front of the floor. If you want a space in the Quiet Zone or elsewhere on the floor we have a booth for you!

Barry, I'm so looking forward to this year's MHC! I've already been working on my presentations and all I can say is those in attendance will leave with a lot of information and material! Like I always say, I try to deliver all the material and information I wish I had when I first started. It would have literally saved me thousands! Thanks to you, Kathy, Kelly and Neena for providing this incredible opportunity!
