Halloween & Party Expo returns to Las Vegas for 2023 event

The Halloween & Costume Association and Clarion Events are excited to announce Halloween & Party Expo will return to The Mirage in Las Vegas for the 2023 event, which will take place Jan. 10-12, 2023. The Halloween & Party Expo is a North America event that brings all things Halloween, party and celebration under one roof.

The show successfully returned this year in January and was met with great feedback from buyers and exhibitors alike. Both groups commented that there is no substitute for the face-to-face experience. At the 2023 event, Halloween, party and specialty retailers can once again expect three days of new product releases, networking and sourcing opportunities combined with the convenience and excitement Las Vegas provides as the host-city.

“The focus of the 2022 event was to create a safe environment for buyers and vendors to get back to business. The feedback post-event was overwhelmingly positive regarding the return to live shows, the need for the events, and the business that got done on the show floor,” Marni Golden Vinci, show director for Halloween & Party Expo, commented. “Most importantly, we heard from our customers that they were delighted with the new location and format of the show. Las Vegas is convenient to travel to and holding the event in a host hotel allowed more opportunity to create a community feel during and after show hours. We are excited that we could answer their request and return to Las Vegas in 2023.”

The Halloween & Party Expo provides an opportunity to source and prepare for the upcoming Halloween season, and the January show allows buyers and exhibitors to make new business relationships, see and feel new products in person, and write orders.

Following the success of the show, there was tremendous feedback to keep the show in Las Vegas. Gregor Lawson, chairman of the Halloween & Costume Association board and founder of Morphsuits added, “The 2023 Halloween & Party Expo is thrilled to return to Las Vegas based on the request of our attendees and exhibitors. As the country’s #1 tradeshow city, there are unlimited dining and entertainment options as well as affordable flight options for domestic and international travelers. We are looking forward to partnering with The Mirage to provide discounted hotel rates as well as opportunities for networking on and off the show floor. We can’t wait to carry the excitement and positivity from this year’s event into 2023.”
