The Halloween & Attractions Show

January 1, 2018 No Comments

The Halloween & Attractions Show has been running for over four decades and this year we are proud to announce that 2018 marks our 10th year producing the show in St Louis, Mo. In honor of this momentous event we have some exciting things planned to commemorate our 10th year anniversary in the St Louis area. We have many surprises planned, including daily prize give-a-ways on the show floor worth thousands of dollars. Plus there will be special entertainment and a Friday night party that you won’t want to miss. Additionally, new this year we have a pre-convention bus tour going to Nashville Nightmare and Talon Falls Haunted Attractions. The show will also offer for attendees tours of local haunted attractions.

Something  for Every Size Attraction and Budget
Each year the Halloween & Attractions Show continues to grow with new exhibitors and new products that you won’t see at any other show. The Halloween & Attractions Show combines the must-see products and expert knowledge of hundreds of exhibitor’s both new and veteran, which attracts some of the largest names in the industry like Universal Studios, Six Flags and Knott’s Scary Farm, as well as owner/operators just like you! If you have a farm, escape room attraction, zoo, corn maze, pumpkin patch, paintball field, family fun center, amusement park, aquarium or, of course, a haunted or Halloween-themed attraction, this is the event for you.

Time-Tested and Ever-Expanding Scope
This show has everything you need to make your Halloween season a huge success, and now features Escape Room City, a new segment of the show that caters to the room escape, virtual reality and adventure game industries. Whether you own/operate a successful escape room, are considering exploring this booming industry or thinking about adding an escape room attraction to your haunted house or event, Escape Room City’s vendors and seminars will appeal to both seasoned owners, novices and all those in between.

Bigger and Better Every Year 
Every year for the past several years, the size of the exhibitor trade show floor and the number of exhibitors has exceeded the previous year’s, and 2018 will be no exception! Last year’s trade show floor had record-breaking attendance and exhibitors had their most successful year ever. Booth space is filling up faster than it ever has before. Exhibitors will bring you the latest and greatest products for the Halloween, haunted attraction, Christmas decor and escape room industries, exhibitors that you will only see at our show, all under one roof.

    • “We have been in business since 1988 and a part of our success has been the use of trade magazines such as yours.

    • “…Because of our budget, I am unable to go to market, so your Souvenirs, Gifts & Novelties publication serves at a great tool for me to see what is new and trending in the market, and I have tried many new products because I’ve seen them advertised in your magazine. Thanks again.”
