We want to thank all the members of the Midwest Haunters community who took the time to respond to our survey last week and share their thoughts about attending MHC this summer. After carefully reviewing your comments, it became clear to us that the majority of exhibitors and attendees who responded are reluctant to travel and are concerned about attending large indoor events during the uncertain times brought about by the continuing COVID 19 pandemic.
Out of an abundance of caution, coupled with respect for your opinions, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Midwest Haunters Convention. Instead, we invite you to join us at Midwest Haunters 2021, June 4-6, in Rosemont, Illinois! We look forward to welcoming you next year to a fun-filled convention featuring exciting new products, impactful seminars, and all of the tours, parties, and networking opportunities you've come to expect at MHC.
In the interim, we want to be of service to you in any way we can. Please feel free to contact Jen Thaler at 847-323-5109, or Rich Bianco at 412-812-1773, with any questions.
Say safe and see you in Rosemont in 2021!

MHC News & Updates
As we all know by now, COVID-19 has effectively derailed life as we know it, and the uncertainty regarding what the coming weeks and months might bring have made it virtually impossible to know if existing events are still feasible as scheduled. Rather than suffering through another last-minute postponement, MHC has decided that, in the interest of trying to lay down a stable path for its attendees and exhibitors, The Midwest Haunters Convention will move back from early June to late July.
MHC 2020 will now be held July 24-26, with the pre-show haunt tour on July 23rd. It’s moving locations from the Schaumburg Convention Center to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemount in order to accommodate more exhibitors, many of whom will be coming from the postponed TransWorld Shows in St. Louis.
PLEASE NOTE: Hotel and other information will be updated as soon as is humanly possible!
This decision has only recently been made and MHC is working diligently to get all the details ironed out – there’s a lot to do and very little time to get it done. Please bear with us. We’ll release additional information as soon as it’s confirmed. If you read something on social media that’s not coming directly from a TransWorld or MHC source, please take it with a grain of salt, as we’re seeing a lot of misinformation being spread about our shows right now. If you have questions please feel free to contact [email protected] or [email protected].
We appreciate your continued support during this difficult time, and look forward to seeing you all in July!
Stay healthy and safe
The MHC Team
