Calling all monsters! If you’re a Halloween enthusiast who is counting the months until your favorite holiday, the Midwest Haunters Convention (MHC) may be just the ticket. From June 8th-10th, the MHC will be coming to the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.
The MHC is the largest Halloween show of its kind in the US serving Haunted Attraction Industry professionals and enthusiasts. The MHC features a tradeshow, education, chartered bus tours and entertainment.
Nearly 8 years have passed since the original MHC was held at Cooper Stadium in Columbus, OH. Now, this event has grown from a few hundred attendees to host thousands of haunt owners, actors, workers and enthusiasts to celebrate Halloween and Haunted Attractions.
The MHC Trade Show will feature a 60,000 square foot show room floor with over 100 vendor booths. Educational seminars and workshops as well as networking activities are offered. The 2012 MHC features a 2-day bus tour of Ohio/Michigan haunted attractions, a Monster Masquerade Costume Party featuring the Body Art Fashion Show and contests including the Bloody Mary Monster Makeup Wars Competition, Ms Midwest Scary Pageant & the Scariest Character Contest.
While many of the events and seminars are geared toward operators or staff of haunted attractions and home haunters, there is plenty of fun available for even the most casual of Halloween fans. For example, for the ridiculously low price of $5, trade show registration gives you weekend access to vendors offering the latest in costumes, props, and all sorts of Halloween goodies.
