Haunt convention season has officially begun with the TransWorld Haunted Attraction and Halloween industries show now open and in full swing this weekend through Sunday, March 10, 2013. If you’re near the St. Louis area you must be there!

For the last 17 years, TransWorld’s annual Halloween & Attractions Show featuring the Haunt Show, Holiday and Special Occasion Merchandise has been a “must attend” event in the Halloween & Haunt industries. This year is no exception! During this weekend, the Halloween and Haunt industry will gather to network, get new ideas and approaches, purchase products, compare horror stories and have a great time!

“Whether you are opening a haunted attraction for the first time, or are a seasoned veteran, the Transworld Halloween and Attractions show is a must see event. This is the only trade show that features vendors, from across the nation and overseas, that cover every aspect of our business, from ticketing to makeup and sound FX to giant animatronics. If you are a pro haunter, or want to become one, you cannot afford to miss this event.” –Randy Bates, owner The Bates Motel haunt
