What is HAuNTcon?
Make Your Next Haunt Season A Game Changer
Imagine, getting the newest scare concepts, best makeup effects, bullet proof business and promotion strategies before your competition does. The peace of mind knowing that everything you buy, learn, and apply during this convention is guaranteed to help your attraction grow and stand the test of time. No more “small thinking” and “little ideas.” Everything you get your hands on will be BIG, tested and proven tactics to make your event a landmark on everyone’s local Halloween road map.
“HAuNTcon provides a unique opportunity to both haunters and retail stores. Haunters get insight into what trends their customers will see and build partnerships with local shops. Retail outlets learn how to enhance their in-store experience to drive sales. Imagine an ecosystem where retail and attractions work together to raise mutual awareness and revenue! The Halloween & Party Expo and HAuNTcon are critical to our company development moving forward.”
