Chicago, IL: TransWorld
Exhibits, Inc., producers of the annual National Halloween, Costume and Party
Show, held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont/Chicago
from March 12-16, 2004 have announced the re-appointment of Phyllis Cambria and
Patty Sachs to create and coordinate the educational programs at this year’s show.
Cambria and Sachs, event
experts, speakers, authors of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Throwing a Great
Party,” and developers of several education programs for TransWorld
created the show's educational programs to take place Friday, March 12, Saturday,
March 13 and Sunday, March 14, 2003. These presentations include early bird seminars given each
day from 8 AM to 9 AM and more than 30 show floor presentations of seminars, products and
technique demonstrations on two stages in the exhibition hall.
Each year more than 15,000
attendees come to the world's largest gathering of those involved in the party
goods, haunted house attraction, gift, amusement, costume shop, party planning,
printing and other related industries.
"We put together a program
of exciting and rewarding sessions for attendees ranging from beginners to
veterans in the festivity field," said Cambria. "There will be classes in
everything from make-up techniques to marketing, costumes to customer care,
haunted house how-to’s to home business helpers, preparing promotions to party
planning and everything in between."
Sachs added, “After my
experience as an attendee, exhibitor and speaker at this incomparable conference
for a number of years, I learned the type of sessions participants find most
helpful. We’ve put together an entertaining and enlightening schedule of
time-tested business strategies with new twists and up-to-the-minute tips and
products presented by top industry experts.”
In addition to producing the
three-day education extravaganza, Sachs and Cambria, owners of
SpeakersWritersPlus.com, will be giving presentations as well.
Qualified attendees (party
and haunt business professionals) can visit the trade show featuring more than
700 suppliers and any or all of the educational seminars related to their
business, free of cost. A show highlight is the Friday Night Cocktail Party and
Gala Costume Fashion Show where exhibitors and attendees socialize and see the
latest designs in the costume industry.
The pair will also again
create the Educational Program for TransWorld’s companion show, The Las Vegas
Halloween and Party Show, which takes place April 25 through 26, 2004 at the
Tropicana Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
