HAuNTcon is an acronym for the Haunted Attraction National Tradeshow and Conference, an expo and convention “Designed by Haunters, for Haunters” of every age and level of experience. HAuNTcon brings people who love Haunted Houses and Halloween together for a fun-filled four days and nights of Haunter Education, Tours of Local Haunted Houses, a packed Tradeshow Floor, Hearse Show and an incredible Costume Ball! The HAuNTcon Haunt Tours start on Wednesday April 27 with a pre-show overnight bus trip that includes lights on and lights off tours of ten local haunts. Attendees will meet the team of the Haunted Hotel in Louisville during the Thursday Night Kick-off Tour and get a behind the scenes look at this great event, now in its 17th year. The Friday Night Spotlight Tour is of Indiana’s Industrial Nightmare and Fear Fair, two local legends. A key component of HAuNTcon is education! Over 40 hours of seminars, Make-n-takes, workshops and demonstrations, all included in the price of admission. Our education is designed to help attendees learn new techniques on makeup and actor training, prop and set building, advertising and marketing, as well as tips and tricks to make their lives easier and their attractions more successful. The Tradeshow floor, Friday April 29 through May 1, is filled with the latest in fright services and equipment, for the professional Haunted House owner and the Halloween enthusiast alike. From horror makeup and highly detailed masks to static props and large animatronic creatures, everything a Haunter needs will be for sale, often at wholesale prices. Saturday night April 30, Haunters from across the country show off their most creative costumes at the massive HAuNTcon Costume Ball, a rocking party that celebrates the joy of getting into character for fun, rather than for work. It’s like Halloween in April! Attendee and Exhibitor Registration is available at www.hauntcon.com
