    It is an interesting poll Tater but I do not know if you will get a good answer. Many vendors will write more orders at TW, some because they cross over to the retail side as well. Some vendors have told me that MHC is the most profitable show for them. It just depends on the product being offered. MHC is most assuredly a big cash and carry venue.

    Actually this isn't a fair poll at all... It really isn't fair to compare Transworld with MHC or Hauntcon or anything. The Transworld show we've known from the past is a major buyer seller show. All of the focus is on buyers and sellers.

    Transworld's shows destroy we're talking atomic bomb these other shows for writting orders. On the other hand with regards to Transworld you also hear the complaints about costs of the show, or it was no fun or whatever.

    If you switched the poll around and asked which show did you enjoy more it would be MHC in a landslide...

    We're talking about two different shows, with two different agendas, goals and functions. MHC I'm sure all would agree was the show hey enjoyed more and Transworld you'll hear ten times the complaints.

    Married couples fight about money more than anything... Transworld is a money show, that is why you hear the most complaints because the show is about money making money, money to support your business.

    Tater first I have to say it was the first I had ever seen you perform and we enjoyed it. Being new to the business and first year convention people, I think they were two totally different shows that serve two different purposes.

    Transworld is more for buyers of stores and less about haunters. Very impersonal but was better for us having both types of businesses. Very overwelming however.

    MHC was great to see how the actors/actresses take pride in there work, talk to other haunters and much more time to talk to vendors. We spent less here but learned more about the business and suppliers. Actually ordered from ones we missed at Transworld or just didn't have time to get back to. We took folks from our haunt and they loved the show.

    You can't make it through Transworld trying to do both a haunt and a store. It's just to much for 3 days.

    I think it's great to have the 3 months in between the two different shows. The entertainment at MHC was far greater than Transworld just because it was all haunters.

    I'm in PA. Hoping to some day do this for a living.....LOL

    We love it but aren't actors. I love putting the event together and need to learn from watching and chatting with others. MHC was great for this. I think these two shows are beneficial for many different reasons. They both serve a different purpose.
