We would like to invite you to reap great rewards by joining The ScareFest Con 2012, the biggest Horror and Paranormal Convention in the USA on September 28-30, 2012, in Lexington, Kentucky. The Lexington Convention Center is located in the center of the city, in the center of Kentucky and the center of 75% of the population of the United States, at the intersection of I-64 and I-75. In fact, Lexington is no more than a 5 hour drive from the most distant reaches of this massive market.
The ScareFest features many top stars and celebrities of the horror and paranormal communities who bring in thousands of adoring fans. Patrons of these types of conventions are among the most highly regarded demographic in the marketing business--well educated with disposable incomes, experienced with horror and paranormal genre and quick to adapt to the latest trends in the new age of thought and products. This is the type of person that any merchant in this field would like to reach.
There will be over 40 seminars, workshops and movie reviews that you can attend on all three days. Over 150 different and unique dealers will be there to shop from. They will be offering the strange and bizarre in the horror merchandise along with dealers offering metaphysical tools and unusual mystic merchandise. Lots of psychic readers, intuitive healers and aura photographers will be offering their services as well.
VIP Party, Costume Ball, Undead Wedding, Horror movies at the Kentucky Theater, Wicked World, and ScreamPark, are only a few of the wonderful fun you will have at the ScareFest three day event.
For the low price of $350.00 you will get a 10’ x 10’ three sided-curtain, rental booth with one 6 foot skirted table, two chairs for three days. Each exhibitor will be granted two weekend passes. All dealers will be able to attend all the free seminars. We also offer multiple booths discounts.
We are so grateful for your support and efforts to help us promote this colossal event in September 28 – 30, 2012
