    Hi All,

    I am looking to attend my first haunt convention in 2013 and had a few questions.

    What one will you attend?

    Since I am looking to open next year, I do not have any of the documents that Transworld requests to register

    How do I get an invite from an exhibitor?

    Is that verification of information normal at other haunt conventions?

    Are there any closer to the east coast?

    Appreciate any and all advice

    One convention TRANSWORLD! You can call TRANSWORLD and ask what they will need so you can get in.
    It's the one trade show i do every year!
    By far the biggest and best selection you will see any where.

    Looks and sounds like Transworld is the one I will be attending.

    Hey Charlie,

    If you notice, Transworld also hosts Halloween Extreme (a new show for this year).

    Jen Braverman (i hope i didn't butcher the last name), is transworlds producer, and I recently called her to speak about the two shows and determine which one (or both) to vend at for 2013.

    Transworld breakdown,
    LARGE following
    St Louis
    Business focused
    High end clientele
    Larger vendor selection

    Halloween Extreme
    First year
    Business and hobbyist focus
    Open to public
    Free(I believe)
    Smaller but reliable and trusted vendors

    If you need to network and plan on spending some g's, go to Transworld. Heck, if you can't get an invite by January let me know and I'll give you one of mine.

    If you want to get your feet wet, see some cool stuff and network with fellow haunters, and haunt enthusiasts, and don't plan on spending a fortune, go to halloween extreme, you can get a nice tan! Lol.

    It all comes down to what you want to get out of the trade show.

    Midwest haunters is good if you want to see a LOT of haunted houses.

    National haunters is very small but has some decent connections, although they're starting to gear towards a ren-crowd which is unique.

    And Leonard's show (name escapes me but its hosted in PA as well as NHC) has a strong Following, but can be a little sketch (mainly cause Leonard pickle runs it lol, he's great and talented and all but he has had a bit too many legal trouble for me to want to do business with him lol).

    Honestly, trust your hands in
    Halloween Extreme
    Midwest Haunters

    If you're low budget
    National Haunters Convention is small, but very pleasant, I went last year. Thanks Janene from distortions for that lol!
