The National Haunter’s Convention with Michael Bruner and Steve Randi

Posted 21 Apr 2013 in PODCASTS

National Haunters ConventionWe packed this episode with double the fun! We get Michael Bruner in the dungeon and torture him for details on his event The National Haunter’s Convention (or The National Halloween, Horror, Haunted House, & Hearse Conversation) which will be at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA on May 3-5. We also turn to Steve Randi, a home haunter going to the pro side, and ask him what he expects from the National Haunter’s Convention this year and why he is setting up a Haunted Attraction in the middle of the convention floor!

Michael Bruner gives you many reasons why you should not miss this year’s convention. An all night Tour to Shocktoberfest, a Wild West Costume Ball, a family friendly environment, new vendors in the Haunt Industry, a hearse show, education for Haunters, the showroom floor, and much more! If you live close by (or even if you don’t) it’s still not too late to jump in your transportation device and go there.

Steve Randi has been a Home Haunter for over 7 years and has decided to take his skills to the Professional side of Haunting. After his home haunt in Danbury, CT outgrew his house he knew it was time to venture into finding a permanent location. He will be displaying his talent for the first time in front of many other Haunters and Halloween fans at this year’s convention. With his crew and help from the SEPHH (South Eastern Pennsylvania Home Haunters) there will will be a complete Haunted Attraction on the show room floor complete with props, actors, and scary goodness. I’m sure you can find Steve there and ask him questions about becoming a Professional Attraction and his experience in Home Haunting. Tell him HaunTopic Radio sent ya….


The National Haunters Convention is like a huge reunion that you look forward every year to attending. We offer many of the features of a large haunt convention without the large bite out of your budget. If you are a Professional or Amateur haunter, a Halloween home or yard haunter, or just plan the coolest Halloween parties among all your friends, then this convention is for you. If you like to visit conventions or have never been to one before we welcome everyone who is into Goth, horror movies, classic movies, animatronics, robots, makeup, prop building, airbrushing, or just plain anything to do with Halloween to attend. Our seminars are top notch, and you will find vendors that have products and services that will amaze you.
For anyone in the past 8 years who has been to a Pennsylvania Haunters Gathering (our predecessor) or an Eastern Haunters Convention they will tell you: our event is about networking, learning and having a good time. The vendors are coming out in droves with a huge variety of products from Animations to Promotional Products. This is a chance of a lifetime for haunts of every size to meet the vendors and other haunters face-to-face, see products in person, stock up on supplies, and have a great time.
You will have the opportunity to participate in informative seminars with industry professionals, win great haunt-related prizes, tour local top notch haunted attractions and even attend our costume ball.
We invite you to browse our website, learn about our seminars, the convention show floor, our famous costume ball, our vendors, and our events. You can purchase tickets online at a discount, or at the door the weekend of the event at full price. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
