Halloween & Party Expo 2018 will be held from January 12 to 15 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Next year’s show floor will host new and expanded product categories, and introduce a number of exhibitors who are new to the event.

More than 30 companies will be represented in the makeup category, including Mehron, Wolfe FX, Graftobian Make-up, Paint Glow, Kryolan, Cinema Secrets, Moon Glow, and more. In addition, the Halloween & Party Expo will introduce the new Artist Battleground competition, where makeup brands will transform models based on a mystery theme. During the event, attendees will get a first-hand look at the products and application techniques. The competition will feature celebrity judges Kyle Vest and Nick Wolf.

The show floor will also host new props and décor companies as part of HAuNTcon, the Haunted Attraction Tradeshow & Convention. With this new co-location, retailers will now have access to both events to allow expanded opportunities to see and source products and merchandising ideas.
