Last spring, I went to TransWorld, the annual trade show in Saint Louis, Missouri. This is THE national event for professionals working in the haunt industry.
To attend, you have to prove you work in the field (luckily for me, writing a blog for exactly $0.00 profit counts). The convention previews and sells all the latest products and technology for haunted attractions, including everything from masks to huge animatronics to fog machines. They also hold lectures on topics such as realistic gore makeup application and how to manage a seasonal business.
It’s also the ideal place for Halloween Geeks who obsess about the holiday all year round to get a little taste of October in March.
Here are the pictures I took at this year’s event.
