TransWorld’s Halloween & Attraction show is the ONLY industry trade show of its kind in the world. There is no other show that has as many exhibitors and industry related products. For three decades TransWorld’s annual Halloween & Attractions show has created the marketplace for the Haunted House industry. Each year the Industry gathers to network, get new ideas and purchase products. This show is a MUST ATTEND event if you are thinking about opening or currently operate a haunted attraction, corn maze, farm, pumpkin patch, paintball field, family fun center, amusement park, zoo, aquarium, Halloween retail store or anything Halloween-related. We have everything you need to make your Halloween season a success. Each year, the show continues to grow with NEW EXHIBITORS, NEW PRODUCTS and more buyers on the show floor. The Halloween & Attractions Show combines the products and knowledge of hundreds of exhibitors that you need to see this March!

NEW IN 2019! TransWorld's new Christmas Show will be co-located with the Halloween & Attractions Show for one low price! That's right - one entry fee for BOTH shows! For more information about the Christmas Show, visit TWChristmasShow.com!

The Halloween & Attractions Show also features Escape Room City, a 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.


HAA Show News & Updates

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS!

TRANSWORLD DOES NOT SELL YOUR INFORMATION. PERIOD.

It has come to our attention that our exhibitors and attendees have been receiving bogus emails offering to sell lists of TransWorld’s exhibitors and attendees. These are 100% fake. TransWorld does not sell this information to anybody – these parasitic scam companies cobble together information from past shows, websites and other publicly-available information, then try to pass it off as something legitimate. It’s not.

Similarly, TransWorld works directly with area hotels for our room rates each year – if you receive an email from any company claiming to be working on our behalf to book rooms for you, it’s a scam.

Any email you receive regarding the Halloween & Attractions Show (or any other TransWorld show or tour) that doesn’t come directly from TransWorld or Heritage Convention Services is likely fraudulent, and should be treated accordingly.
