So HAuNTcon is coming up right around the corner…okay well actually in 2012, but you gotta be prepared as both a vendor and a buyer.

Rotting Flesh Radio was covering the 2011 HAuNTcon event as the Official Media Sponsor (CLICK HERE TO HEAR RFR HAuNTcon COVERAGE FROM 2011) and so will be the case in 2012. And true to form, the annual tradeshow moves from location to location every year. This proves to keep it fresh, expand to haunters who may not be able to travel to a single location and also bring fun unique haunt tours each year.

Well HAuNTcon has Officially Announced its’ Location and Dates for the 2012 Annual Tradeshow. The Official Press Release Reads:

“HAuNTcon 2012 will be at the Monroeville Convention Center, 209 Mall Boulevard, Monroeville, PA, (a suburb of Pittsburgh) May 3 through May 7, 2012. With the pre-show haunt tour May 2nd and 3rd.

This is the first year HAuNTcon will be in a convention center rather than a hotel. The host hotel is the Monroeville Double Tree, 101 Mall Boulevard Monroeville, PA and the hotel will be the location of THE social event of the haunting season, the 2012 HAuNTcon Costume Ball, Saturday May 5. This hotel is a upscale Hilton property and HAuNTcon discounted room rate will be a low $114 a night.

This location just happens to be next to the Monroeville Mall, most famous for its appearance in the George A. Romero horror film Dawn of the Dead (1978).
