Just curious if anyone was making out to the National Haunters Convention in PA? Has anyone ever been before? If so what was your experience like?

Best,

Jason.

You can see some videos of last years event here:

and you can read some reviews (albeit brief) here:

HOWEVER!!! that was *LAST* years event, in a hotel.


*THIS* years event is 5 ( YES FIVE!! ) times larger, in the Valley Forge Convention Center with 2 hotels to house us. The Radisson and the Scantion.


Last year we had about 20 vendor tables - this year we have 140 vendor booths!!!!!
(with several animatronic vendors.)

*THIS* year, we're also having a slew of free events to keep people entertained

We've re-vamped and themed our seminars, and quadrupled the size of the rooms

We've changed the tour to FRIDAY NIGHT, so that
1.) we can enjoy a haunt tour in the dark
2.) more people can make it since they don't need to use vacation time from work.

We're bringing in a mini-event-attraction: Prof. Ouch's Odditorium!

We're bringing in several DARK MAGIC magicians to entertain you throughout the day with *FREE* stage shows!

and of course, our incredible Cadaver's Cotillion - the National Haunters Convention very own costume ball - everyone who went last year can testify how incredible it was, this year we're going with a pirate theme

And (this is what I think is super cool) - we're going to have our very own "Halloween antiques road show" with *FREE* appraisals - bring your grandmother's old paper jack o'lantern and find out that it's worth $500! (yes, those prices are that high)

And we're going to be your one stop shop for all things monster collectable:

Michael that sounds great! I'm looking forward to attending the show.

This is my haunts first year in production. My team has done numerous home haunts and small party shows but now we are working with a charity and opening up to a larger audience so coming to the convention taking some of the seminars and meeting some haunters will be a great experience.

Thank you for replying to this post with some information and links, it is very helpful.

Keep an eye out for my team and I, we will be wearing the Grimlock Manor T-shirts walking the floor as well as attending the "Getting started in the business." seminar.

All the best,

Jason.
