I am out of town so I did not get to attend this year although I always enjoy the show that Barry, Kathy and the gang put on. I wanted everyones input on what they thought. I have talked to a few vendors already and they said sales were nothing to brag about. Some say attaendance was bigger, some say smaller, bla, bla! However it was I know everyone did the best job they could and I am sure at the end of the day everyone had fun. Just wanted to hear from others! Shane and it's I bet everyone is tired! Shane!!

I just got back from MHC a few hours ago (4 hour trip).
It was very well attended...very busy!
The show floor seemed packed with vendors (the most I've seen in 5 years).
In my opinion it gets better each year! Can't wait for the 10 year anniversary next June!
Good times, good times!

I volunteered Friday and Saturday. From about 2:10-2:50 there was a big surge of people picking up their pre-registration packets, various tickets, shirts and registering onsite. There were big lines for about 40 minutes. I was in charge of greeting people and directing them to the area they needed to go to. I was there from 2-6. Rex Hamilton helped from 2-4, but would come in and out to see how things were going. When the buses dropped people off from the Paranormal Bus Tour, there was another surge of people. Except for the first 40-45 minutes, most groups came in small numbers. The History of Halloween Class next door didn't have many people attending it. I'm not sure if people realized that it was at 5. I would say that on Friday there were about 500 people picking up their packets or registering onsite. But, I didn't count each different person that came through to pick something up. So, I could be way off. I also volunteered on Saturday from 12:30-2:30. When I showed up there weren't that many pre-registration packets left. I counted less than 20. Most people on Saturday were registering onsite from what I saw.

I only worked for about an hour on Saturday because the other volunteer had everything taken care of. So, the pre-registration booth was pretty dead when I showed up. Most people were registering onsite. The T-Shirts were a big hit this year with purple being the favorite. The T-Shirts were running low and so was everything else. So, I'm guessing that before I showed up there was a big surge of people registering onsite and purchasing shirts. The woman who was volunteering before me said that less than 10 packets were picked up for pre-registration before I came.

Over 1,500 people had tickets for the costume ball. It didn't look like there were 1,500 people at the party, but I didn't count. It was very packed and the ball room was plenty big enough to accommodate everyone. The Columbus Convention Center is huge and the floor the tradeshow is on is massive. I think this is a big reason why the tradeshow might look small because of all the floor space not being used. If the convention was on a smaller space then it would look massive. There were a total of 105 vendors and the tradeshow was packed on Saturday. The Monster Makeup Wars was the most crowded I've ever seen it. I had a hard time walking around to take pictures.

I'm not going to guess exactly how many people I think attended the show because I'm really not that sure. If you count people who checked out the tradeshow floor each day, I'm sure it would be in the thousands since you would be counting the same registered people more than once. But if you're just counting registered people once, it obviously won't be nearly as high. I know that it seemed more crowded than it did last year. I'm done for now. I'll save the rest for my article.

I thought most of the booths looked packed for most of Saturday... Packed to the point that it was difficult to get close to some of them. Predictably, some of the more business-oriented booths (ticketing, card readers, ATMs, etc) had few or no people in front of them. Sunday things thinned out quite a bit, but there was noticeably less inventory to choose from too. I stopped by the BrainChow Studios booth on Sunday and talked to Michael, and he said they had sold out of 75% of their inventory.

I think a few of the vendors kind of "shot themselves in the foot" a bit though. There were a few particular booths that seemed to never have anyone working at them. There were others where the person manning the booth was on his/her cell phone the whole time. There was one booth that was selling haunt music CDs that had speakers set up, but we passed it at least five times over the weekend, and not one time did they actually have any music coming out of the speakers. Weird! With that being said, the majority of the vendors were quite friendly and helpful! On the whole, the convention was awesome!

Hey Shane,

Sorry you didn't make it this year. Was hoping to see you there. We've posted some photos from the show including the tradeshow floor, some of the people that stopped by our booth and the great costumes from the costume ball! We're working on the video from the show for this weekends release of "The Haunt Brief"! Hope you and everyone else enjoys!

As a vendor we did quite well. MHC was our test run for Transworld. We came with over 60 costumes distressed to the core and came home with only 5. We took some orders but overall "as it has been said" it is a cash and carry show. This was our first MHC show as a haunter too. I got to get the rest of my stuff for the year that I had somehow missed at Transworld. The Costume Ball seemed happening. My only complaint is the people there. I was dress up, in character, and ready to party. This did not last long. The people I did interact with in character who were also in character did not respond well. They kind of looked at melike I was crazy or gave me the look of death. Really disappointed being that this is an actor convention on that part. All and all we were glad we finally made it to this show.

This was my first MHC and I brought my son Jack. We had a really great time! Saturday the tradeshow floor was very busy, Sunday was pretty slow. All smallish vendors (no animatronics at all) but a lot of cool stuff worth buying. The attendees really seemed to have a good time. The costume party attendance and participation was impressive, best of any haunt shows I've been to. Why don't other haunt parties have good DJ's and MC's? Makes all the difference! My seminar was packed, but the room only held about 50 people. Downtown Columbus is pretty cool... lots and lots of great restaurants.

Will do again next year!

I'm with Doug...I flew in @ the very last minute from the Atlantic City, NJ area & had a blast. I even got lucky on a room cancellation and got to stay right @ the Hyatt. Attended two great seminars Friday. I got to meet both Doug & his son and enjoyed their great display. First Haunt Convention for me & although it sounds much smaller than other Haunt Conventions, I don't know how the people (both the convention attendees/participants or the locals) could have been any more friendly. Great downtown area to walk around & visit...met quite a few people...and a few characters.;) I intend on attending 2-3 conventions next year but I'm going to make MHC a stop every year. Your never going to please everyone every time so I take some of the negatives with a grain! It takes time & great effort to build conventions up. To those who put it all together...you did a great job...keep up the good work! :D

This year was my first Midwest show. It was a nice "change" for me because we usually only go to Transworld, and when we are there I'm so focused on the "business" side of the show I really don't have time to enjoy the people that are around me.
As a smaller haunt we are just starting to get to the point of going to several shows a year. Meeting and socializing with contacts & staff of other haunts & vendors we have met is one part of the shows I enjoy, & Midwest offered a lot of this.
I look forward to going back next year.

Jay, Allen and I got to premiere our new company The House of Boo with our first product line "Night Terror Toy Shoppe". The show stayed pretty busy, and I agree that it was the largest trade show since we started attending MHC. We managed to hit the top end of our goal for sales, which was exciting being our first convention as a vendor. We'll be at TW this next year with some changes and additions to the toys product line.

This was not only our first time vending at the Midwest, but our first time attending as well. Of course it is a smaller show than TW, but because it isn't as big, we had more time to spend talking with customers on the trade show floor. We actually did better floor sales there than TW. And the socializing both during and after the trade floor was closed was fantastic. We saw a lot of old friends, and met quite a few new ones. I know that we will be back next year without a doubt, and we will definitely reserve more booth space. That way maybe we can keep more stock on the floor instead of having to make so many trips to the truck to restock. Winding down on Sunday evening we had a chance to sit and talk with Barry and he asked if there was anything we had issues with or any suggestions. The only thing I could think of was to possibly make the show aisles a little bigger. We always had a crowd at our booth and at times it was tough for folks to get through.

On a side note, because of the popularity of our portable actor animations, we got some great new ideas from folks, and several will go into production just as soon as we catch up with orders.

Thank you Shane! It is not too late...

However, it looks like we will be at Transworld 2013 and will have more to offer in the selection of costumes.

This was the first year vending for Malicious Studios.... I've gotta say "Wow!"

I could not be happier with the results we had from the show.... I was tired when I got there and I was BEAT when I left but I will say sales were awesome we left with what we had on the table and everything else SOLD!! With a few orders we are currently finishing up and a few stragglers coming in from the show I think it was very profitable.

I will definitely be back next year with more...

Thanks Again Everyone !

First time for me as well. I greatly enjoyed the show, ball and classes. I was exhausted for most of the show.

The only thing I would suggest changing is the first schedule of classes. I was very torn because I was itching to get into the show, but I really wanted to attend the mold-making class. The show opened at 9, and the class was at 9:30. I hated choosing. I think it might work better if the first classes are at 10 since it would give a person the chance to quickly check out at least a little of the show. Just my opinion.

I was surprised that so many people attending the party weren't in any kind of costume. Mine wasn't a great costume, but it worked out. Some of the costumes were amazing! The party was a lot of fun, but the beer selection at the Hyatt was very limited and very expensive ($5.50 for a Miller Lite at the party). It seemed like a lot of people were down on level 2 instead of up on 3 with the party. Now, I am not complaining. I am just adding my impressions of the weekend.

I really wanted to attend classes on Sunday, but I was very tired, so I walked around the show buying stuff and taking pictures instead.

All in all, it was great fun. The guy who taught the mold making class had a ton to teach. We ran out of time, but it was a great class. The Frightprops class was great too. I knew zero about pneumatics, but now I have a basic understanding. My traveling companion had a basic understanding of it, and he learned many helpful things.

I am very glad I went, and I have every intention of going again next year.

Barry
06-15-2012, 09:18 PM
I have always been very humbled to think that people take time, or spend vacation time, to come to our event. I know I can speak for the other three organizers when I say that we put everything into making sure that all who attend have the opportunity enjoy themselves. When I read comments such as those that are in this thread I am humbled once again. Your comments are very much appreciated and constructive criticism is always welcome! That being said, I have not finished crunching the numbers but I can safely say that this was easily our largest show in all aspects. From having 4 buses on the pre-con tour, to selling out the Friday tour, to packed seminars, and a party that was easily the largest our industry has ever seen. All of this would not have happened if it were for all of you who came to buy, sell, and learn!

To respond to a few topics in this thread: There were 1500 passes issued for the party but of course not everyone was there at any given time. I was at the party for a short time and, from looking down from the mezzanine, it was the largest crowd I have ever seen.

As for class scheduling the one thing we always struggle with is giving everyone the classes they want and value for their money versus having enough time to go shopping with the vendors. I think the change I made a few years ago allowing a longer break around lunch time has worked out well however I am always open to new ideas.

To Doug, the classrooms were supposed to be set for 80 but I think a few of them may have been set a little smaller but either way your class was our 3rd highest attended at 62. Given that we are running 5 classes at a time I think you did great!

It is hard to believe that next year will be our 10th year. Seeing this event grow from that first year at the baseball stadium to what it has become is kind of overwhelming. It definitely would not have happened if it weren't for the help and support of so many people in the industry!

Barry
06-15-2012, 10:23 PM
I have to admit that I did make a mistake with regard to the party count. When I went back and looked at the numbers I have gathered so far they were not adding up. It turns out when we were calculating final numbers to put in our last food order I misread one of the printouts from the register. Were were actually at 1200. Either way it was still a huge party and, on the plus side, we had plenty of food for everyone!

i think you have to be 16 to get into transworld.... just wondering I think there was an age minimum there............

Barry
06-16-2012, 07:31 AM
No, the only restrictions that we have is that those under 12 have to be accompanied by an adult.

bhays
06-17-2012, 06:44 AM
I do recommend an age restriction on the costume ball at least until a certain point. I saw a lot of young children running around amongst the body art models and somehow that just doesn't seem an ideal situation. I am anything but a prude;) but I know a lot of people were commenting on that as well

Family friendly is a good thing and Inam supportive of that, but some events should be limited to adults.

I personally like the minimum at Transworld, that show is about business & the new products for our industry. It's already so many people there, that children running around & baby strollers would be a unneeded distraction while trying to see & conduct business with the vendors.
As for Midwest I don't feel the same way, as most of us have already placed our big orders with the vendors, and Midwest feels more to me like a "social" event and "fun" side of what we do. However I do see the "body paint" & young children point. Maybe just a restriction on the costume ball.
Just my 2 cents.

...was at the ball, she was the little blonde with the blacked out eyes and black and white dress. there were some costumes that i was uncomfortable with, but NOT the body art. maybe im to liberal but she does 70% of our airbrush work and runs air brush booths at all the local city festivals. it was truly art for us, infact i hated spending all the money i did at TW on our air brush equipment with out her there but knew my choices would be limited at midwest.

bhays
06-17-2012, 04:40 PM
I know there was a large ratio of home Haunters this year than in years past which led to more kids. I know that we have always viewed MHC as the last opportunity each year to have a fun weekend (and yes, party) before we have to really start working hard on this year's show.

I am fine with the idea of more family friendly events at the show, but I believe there is a limit to how far you can integrate certain aspects of the convention. The Saturday night party I just don't feel is really intended to be a family event. Maybe have another family oriented event that same night for those looking for a different environment.

To my knowledge, there were no problems at all this year. I know that both Zombie Army and our crew partied on our buses until past 3 am and we spoke with the police on duty and obtained permission prior to doing so. Frankly, the police presence was a little overbearing as it was. Officers in uniform patrolling the costume ball was enough to suck the life out the party for myself. Many others commented on the same to me.

Different strokes for different folks, but I think most of the aspects of a Haunt industry convention are just not geared for children.

I agree with Brett and maybe there could be a family friendly event! I do not think the MHC Party would be a place for the kids. But when there is a need and wanted things can always be added so there is someting for everyone. When I made my comments I was looking at the Industry in general and it seems like that were all about the booze and all night everyone is invited to my room parties and less about the show's itself. This is just as I see it and my opinion. Honestly as far as my party goes if I could leave the booze out I would but just because I don't drink don't mean others don't or should not. IF THEY KNOW HOW TO CONDUCT THEMSELVES! I can also say that I have not had one problem not one! And actually in thinking most people expect that at a party!

It's all the other places you see them drunk and acting stupid. Like when you get off the elevator and have to walk through a party in the hall or when your in bed and all you can hear is their loud asses! I noticed when I got on the elevator one night there were several hotel security guys and police get on with me and low and behold they got off on my floor and made what seems to have been 100 people with coolers and booze blocking the halls yelling and drinking and having a good old time! I heard them say that hotel staff and other quest had complained and if they had one more complaint they would be removed from the hotel half were from the same Haunt but I will not call the name they know who they are. I did think to myself hell yeah Shane you will sleep tonight!!!!

Talk to Kelly, Kathy, Berry they will listen and offer something! Again I am not judging people for drinking I am judging the hundreds of photos you see with everyone with a beer in their hand hell they could get a kick back from Bud Light!!!

On a side note Brett, Zombie Army I have 14 million dollar plus buses/private coaches and am adding 10 more this fall! My company hauls some of the biggest names in the world and I can say this that we refuse to lease to rappers for the very reason they use the coaches as bars and try to pack 50 people on a coach that's built to sleep 12 people!!!!!! The last person that broke the straw was Chris Brown and his gang. I had 3 buses with over 1 million in damage! They paid for the damage and I said NO MORE!!!!!!! Shane and it's my coaches are not school buses or party buses with stripper poles on them LOL! Shane

06-17-2012, 07:16 PM

Brett and it's I only got about $15,000 in mine and it does the job.

I am just having fun with you, hope you know that.

We were on the 12th floor. People seemed to party downstairs and go upstairs to sleep. I guess I was lucky. I thought the hotel was nice and quiet.

Barry
06-19-2012, 08:36 AM
Here are a couple of things from our perspective:

We make it very clear on the website, and to anyone who asks directly, that MHC and especially the party are adult oriented. However we do not want to put ourselves in the position of telling you what is or is not appropriate for your children. We feel that parents are the best suited to make this decision.

As for the uniformed police officer, that was not by our choice. It was a requirement of the hotel this year and it is standard operating procedure for groups of our size that have a party component to the event.

I assumed as much, Barry. It's unfortunate that they make that requirement, or that the officers can't find a way to be a little more discrete. That guy was walking around giving everyone the once over to a degree that exceeds most of the prison guards I encounter in my visits to clients... silly. You guys put on a fantastic event, by far the best of the season. Congratulations on the growth!

sean
06-21-2012, 07:15 AM
Personally, I thought the officer was quite easy going. He was a continuous target for actors and played along great. He made people keep their drinks inside, but other than that, he didn't seem to bother anyone. I was outside when some jaggoff lit up a joint (I didn't see it, just smelled it)....the officer smelled it too, but didn't seem too concerned. Me personally, I'd prefer a bitch slap manhood stealing type slap acrossed the lips to that guy, makes us all look bad.

FrightProps
06-21-2012, 11:13 AM
Yeah, that cop was pretty cool. I complimented him on his awesome costume and he thought that was pretty funny. Later I bumped up against his gun by mistake and he just smiled at me. Couldn't be a better officer for the event. I noticed that there were also a ton of hotel staff walking around just observing and I thought at the time "wow, this hotel really knows how to manage this event well". It was clear that they have been through this year after year and know what to expect and how to deal with whatever comes up.

Kids and nudity... really?! Really? The women I saw in body paint all had undies and pasties on, and were nothing special to look at. Are we really that moral to say kids can't be near that? My 12 year old son Jack didn't even look twice at them they were so unappealing and non-sexual. Funny how some people in our country get so worked up and outraged by the naked human body but don't even think twice about gore and violence! But I digress. To each their own. For me I don't give a crap if my kids see naked people, big f'n deal.

graystone

For me I don't give a crap if my kids see naked people, big f'n deal.......

For me and this is my opinion kids need not be exposed to hairy balls and vagina's even if they are coverd with a bandaid! I think kids should keep their innocence as long as they can and not be placed in a situation to have to ask questions before it's time. God forbid of one of these naked people (who some think is not a "big f'n deal") is a child molester because NO ONE KNOWS EVERYONE IN PUBLIC! Ever heard the expression" what go's on behind closed doors should stay there" So should naked people or half naked people who you don't know especially in the presents of kids. This is my opinion and we all raise our kids as we see fit but it's how they turn out and what they are exposed to as young kids that molds them.

As far as gore and violance I agree but it's how you see them that makes the difference. If you know that in the world or make believe and fiction that it's just that and in reality we should never cross that line then I think it's a equal balance! Shane and it's just as I see it! Shane

MDKing
06-21-2012, 05:00 PM
I agree with Shane here.

Also the cop who smelled pot and did nothing sounds like a waste of a human being to me. Drugs are illegal it's his job to uphold the law, so he's just as bad as the pot head lighting up.

The people of our "industry" are not thought of as the most moral of people out there, these are examples of why that is the case. Until we clean up our act and actually act like professionals no one will ever really take as serious in many aspects of our operations.

This was just on huffington post today!!!!! A PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHY KIDS AND HALF NAKED ADULTS AS WELL AS COSTUMED ADULTS SHOULD NOT MIX!!!!!!! YOU NEVER KNOW WHO IS STANDING NEXT TO YOUR KIDS!!!!!!! This brings up a question do you allow kids to work in your haunts and do you do background checks on your actors? At Disturbia you have to be 18 and no record!!! Of course this is to never say anything can't happen and Lord knows there is always the "Hook Ups" which none of us can control but 18 is the limit with me!!! Shane and it's I agree with Allen as well! Shane

06-22-2012, 06:37 AM
Good point about the naked ness vs the blood and gore. Bunch of talk about the kids being around the body paint but not a whole lot said about the kids being around the decapitated people, lol. To each his own.

To the cops credit, I'm biased because I am one, Must have been over 100 people outside where he was.....all smoking cigarettes. It'd be difficult to find the dipshit burning one, plus, the concern of the entire crowd choosing sides if he did find him. Not to mention the dipshit would have been able to avoid the cop while in the crowd.

I use teen actors (in addition to adults)in my haunt, however, Im very lucky to have extremely dedicated teens. All staff, including teens, get a background check and there is a standard of expectation that goes along with being a part of the haunt.

graystone
06-22-2012, 08:35 AM
I don't see a problem with kids lets say 13 years or even a lil younger if they know how to act at these shows. It's just some of the events they may need to keep as "For Adults Only" My last post came off as that and it was not as I ment. And really in thinking about it even having younger 13 and up would be fine in haunts because you can always have your staff keep an eye on them it's just places where there is no way to know everyone that can get a child in trouble of not watched! Shane and it's hope I cleared that up! Shane

Hey Jim, I was checking out the thread seeing responses to the show and saw yours:

Jay, Allen and I got to premiere our new company The House of Boo with our first product line "Night Terror Toy Shoppe". The show stayed pretty busy, and I agree that it was the largest trade show since we started attending MHC. We managed to hit the top end of our goal for sales, which was exciting being our first convention as a vendor. We'll be at TW this next year with some changes and additions to the toys product line.

Congrats on the premier, however I am one of the majority of haunters that did not attend the show. We see the post, you have a link to your site, but when you go there it is only basic info, no pictures no prices. Couple hundred at the show, couple thousand on the message board. Also those that attended that didn't buy may want to revisit the prop on line especially if they have to "justify" it the actual buyer. I only make this point because you are not alone. How many other sites do you go to where they don't list or price their products or don't update so all they have is last year's stuff???

A missed golden oppurtunity. I can't even total the amount of stuff I have bought off the internet just because I see it, it's priced right and I can order it sitting at home in my underwear!! Haunts are our business so we don't want location or price info on our sites from two years ago, yet many vendors have sites who's sole purpose is to sell product and they grossly out of date!!

You guys just debuted so I am sure pictures and pricing will follow soon, hopefully! Good luck!
