guaranteed a Fan Club Package? Any Fan Club may fill
out an application for attendance. Keep in mind that participation
and conduct during the

acceptance or denial can be sent out. If at first your
organization is not accepted, fear not! You be put on
a waiting list
in case we have any cancellations or end up with more

my Fan Club Package? Your organization will
receive a FREE 10’ x 10’ floor space (a $350
value)! Upon arrival at the convention (after
check-in with registration) you can pick up a floor map
and find the Fan Club area. Each organization space will

however, if your organization would be interested in
renting such accessories at a discounted rate please email
to get further instructions.
4. What makes this event
special for Fan Clubs like ours? That is a very good
question. We can’t think of a better way to get
into the spirit of apple-bobbing, trick-or-treating,
haunted houses, spooky tours, and of course dressing up
in costume, than to celebrate with all of you! The best
that if you come celebrate these festivities with us,
you can set up shop for FREE and let us help you promote
5. Can I sell merchandise
at my table? Absolutely! The only
thing we ask is that you still items specially related
to your organization. Any product being sold
as a violation of the above will be requested to be removed.
Any further requests beyond this warning to remove
non-organizational products from the show floor may include
expulsion from the convention and possibly effect future
participation at events.
6. Is any merchandise forbidden? We do not censor our
vendors from selling their products, we encourage it!
Yet, because this is an all-ages event we ask
our vendors to use some discretion [especially at a child’s
eye level] when setting up displays for any materials
that may be
viewed as controversial or explicit. The National Haunters,
Halloween, Horror, & Hearse Convention does not permit
the selling of merchandise that is deemed as a copy /
bootleg / pirated material. Any organization found in
this policy will be asked to leave the convention for

8. Does our organization
receive any complimentary admission or tickets to the
Show Floor, Haunters Tour, or Costume Ball? The Thursday before
the opening of the show floor is a set up day. There is
an informal “meet and greet” afterward
(usually in the evening) that is FREE, however, if the
members of your organization would like to receive passes
organization they can purchase them at a discounted rate
of $10.00 for the weekend. All we ask is that you please

and the organization they will be attending with.
As the members of your organization “check-in”

Furthermore, if your organization is interested in attending
the Haunted Tour, Costume Ball or other Convention
events, you will need to purchase these items at the standard

allowed to host seminars or put on stage performances? If this is something
your organization is interested in we may be able to accommodate.
It cannot be guaranteed since
the prime and most available spots are given to paid vendors,
however, feel free to email the Fan Club Liaison with
inquiry and the information regarding your organizations
performance or seminar and we can make further
arrangements at that time.

inquiries to the Fan Club Liaison. Further arrangements
will be made at that time.
