How soon will I know if I was accepted or not?

Approximately within 1 business week. Excludes weekends. We appreciate your patience during this time.



I was a vendor/exhibitor at your previous Spook Show(s). Why haven't I been chosen/notified yet?

Accepted vendors/exhibitors will receive a confirmation email within approximately 1 business week of signup. We appreciate you understanding this.
