The Halloween & Party Expo will be held from January 19 to 22 in Houston. The only truly global tradeshow in the party supplies, costume, and Halloween-products industry, the Expo is home to more than 6,500 buyers and 350 exhibitors from 44-plus countries and territories.

The four-day show, which includes more than 1,400 booths covering 600,000 square feet of space, showcases the industry’s top manufacturers and distributors in three distinct areas: Party, Sexy Costume, and Halloween. It is designed to create a fun, productive, and interesting order-writing environment for everyone in attendance.

Special guest stars also will be on hand for an extra thrill. They include celebrity costume designer Chris March, of Bravo’s Mad Fashion and Project Runway, who will be showcasing his outlandish creations, and pumpkin-carving master Ray Villafane, who will wow the audience with his carving demos.

The famous Halloween Costume Style Show returns and will feature 100 of the hottest new costumes and licenses. Afterward, guests can attend the Saturday Night After-Party at Shark Bar in downtown Houston to mingle with peers and exhibitors in a lively atmosphere.
