Transworld Haunted House Show - Going Scare Shopping with Larry Kirchner
Hauntworld publisher Larry Kirchner who also owns some of the World's best haunted houses takes you thru the entire Transworld Haunted House Tradeshow 2022. Watch Larry walk the show and talk to vendors about buying new products for his own haunted houses. The show was a massive success with every vendor we spoke with claiming haunted house owners spent more money than any previous year by far. What could have triggered haunt owners to spend so much money? Covid has caused some changes in entertainment spending with consumers not traveling overseas, taking cruises and instead choosing to find things to do near home. Additionally haunted house owners have raised prices and due to online ticketing are able to pre-sell upcharged attractions, and add ons like speed tickets.
Haunted House owners are setting records for revenue and their addiction to buying new props, masks, costumes, props and animatronics was in full display at the 2022 tradeshow. Furthermore vendors brought a lot of inventory to sell and it was mostly sold by day one of the show. Watch our aftermath video on youtube, the entire show floor was basically removed within three hours. Thousands of haunt owners removed products within minutes immediatly after the show ended.
Transworld has changed over the last 5 years, much in the same way IAAPA changed many years ago. The first few years of Transworld most of the booths where BIG VENDORS and a handful of small vendors. Now the show is mostly booths under four booths, with many smaller vendors dominating the scene.
The Darkness opened for a one night only Haunt Tour Friday Night (sold out). Wrap up video coming soon.
Well that is a wrap! Now watch Larry Kirchner walk the entire show floor in less than TWO HOURS. Every single year Larry never walks the show until the last hour or two of the show on Sunday and this year was no different. Larry didn't attend the show at all until Sunday around noon and walked the ENTIRE show floor in about 1 hour and 30 minutes. See what he liked and bought.
