    Dear Fright Forum,

    Now that the Halloween Season is over, and with all the recent convention talk (congratz to MHC on their sale), I am excited to announce a few recent changes and updates to the National Haunters Convention & Halloween Show.

    We are excited to offer a special for this year of only $15 for a full three day pass to the show floor and kids 12 and under are 100% free! We support and encourage not only the Haunted House owners, but actors and staff to be able to easily attend.

    We have rented an additional ALL new large private convention room. This area will be completely pitch black with an expanded haunted house in it....never before was this done! Experience a great environment for a show floor haunted house!

    We have the return of a lot of our major Halloween vendors, including a huge new display by Donna Marian of Dark Creations and the return of Spookytime Jingles unique Halloween Art Creations.

    We have hired a Director of Entertainment this year, a professional magician, John Bundy (a.k.a. Wacky Dracky - www.WackyDracky.com). He has done huge professional shows for Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, as well as everything from Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, to Ocean's Park in Hong Kong, China.

    Finally, we have three LARGE Haunted House vendors signed up and confirmed, Creepy Collection, NightScream Studios, and Nevermore Productions....Nevermore Productions, our key Sponsor of the Costume Ball this year of the National Haunters Convention & Halloween Show and has already donated thousands of dollars in prizes. Our other two current main sponsors, Creepy Collection and NightScream Studios are planning on making huge splashes on the show floor. Look for more announcements soon.

    Thanks again to everyone for their years of support, as we continue to grow and expand, for the Haunted House and Halloween Industry.

    Sincerely,

    The Haunt Tour information should be up soon (there is still some juggling with that going on), and we are really starting to finalize the official information for the classes as well.

    Our own Chris Handa, posted this info recently if you missed it:

    Class Schedule

    IFor those who have been watching this space, look for classes to be added VERY SOON as the NHC Professors confirm their continued tenure and are added to the distinguished faculty of Halloween University. In addition, look for a new way to choose your seminars and workshops that will allow students to save money by attending classes either a la carte or as a part of a multi-class package. "Seminars" will be 60-90 minutes in length, and can be scheduled as a single class or with the option to attend an entire weekend's worth of seminars. "Workshops" will be longer in length with a smaller class size and more opportunity to learn an in-depth topic from the best professors in haunted entertainment.

    Here are some of the things that we plan to add to this year's curriculum:

    1. The first-ever Haunt-Actor Internship Program to be conducted at a haunt convention, complete with training and experience in a functional haunt.

    2. A seance workshop led by the creator of New Jersey's most infamous theatrical seance.

    3. A character study hosted by a haunt actor with 16+ years experience who has a loyal fan following and an entire tour written around the iconic character that she created.

    4. A hands-on design and building workshop led by an experienced theme park designer.

    5. Tips on working with retail properties from somebody with 20 plus years experience in event planning and execution, most of it for major mall properties in major cities.

    6. Makeup tricks to help bring on the ugly as presented by professional beauty experts.

    7. NHC's continued commitment to promote safety through a FREE safety seminar, complete with the opportunity to participate in a hands-on inspection.

    Thank you all for your continued interest in Halloween University! I look forward to working with everyone in May!

    The National Haunters Convention and Halloween Show is proud to announce THE BUS CHALLENGE. In an effort to encourage Haunt Owners to bring together their staff and volunteers in an atmosphere of the haunted attraction industry, we are officially issuing "The Bus Challege."

    Any haunt that can stuff their bus with 30 or more people to come and experience The National Haunters Convention and Halloween Show May 2-4,2014. Free admission for all attendees on that bus. (We feel if a haunt owner is willing to spend the money to bring a bus, it's our responsibility as a convention to be as accomodating as possible.) It offers your staff the opportunity to take classes, see the latest in animatronics, props, costumes, masks and supplies as well as visit our new Pitch Black Zone. S and C Scarefactory is back again this year to show their stuff with a new INTERN program for all first year haunters or those who always wanted to volunteer and didn't quite know what was all involved. A great opportunity to spend some quality time together with your staff and their families while improving your haunts SCARE FACTOR.

    Haunt owners MUST coordinate with the owners of the convention (Rob at Rob@nationalhauntersconvention.com or Mike at Mike@nationalhauntersconvention.com) prior to April 15th to be eligible for this program.

    Be sure to share our new website with your staff to get them eager to tackle the 2014 haunt season:
