“The Halloween & Party Expo continues to be the leading resource for retailers and vendors to come together and this year was no exception. With the introduction of new buyer programs, we were able to grow the amount of specialty, online and international buyers at the show. The co-location of Hauntcon was also a great addition – not only bringing more buyers, but a new excitement, especially at the industry costume party. We look forward to seeing what 2019 brings!”
