About Us

OUR SHOW’S MISSION STATEMENT:
“To serve the Halloween Enthusiast Community by providing a quality convention to support their avocation.”

OUR CHARITABLE WORK: 
A portion of the event’s proceeds go to the Tampa Shriners Hospital for Children to help pay for necessary medical care for afflicted young patients.

OUR HISTORY:
1.) Born out of eight years of Halloween prop Make ‘n Take (instructive building course) gatherings that became so popular, we outgrew the venue we had used for the last 8 years! SEHEC is the next masterful step to bring Halloween enthusiasts and paranormal fans together to learn, share and grow their love for all things spooky.

2.) This event features a variety of educational seminars, instructional demonstrations, Make ‘n Take courses (learn-how-to courses where you bring home the creation you make here with guided assistance), notable guest speakers, product vendors, master artists – even from hit television shows, a costume ball, charitable good, and provides a welcoming atmosphere for Halloween and paranormal socializing.

3.) SEHEC’s producer and Halloween zealot, Dr. TerrorEyes, has been involved with Halloween and prop creation for 44 years. He has been a presenter at all major Halloween industry conventions since 2010. This includes popular conventions such as: HAuNTcon, TransWorld, Midwest Haunters Convention, HauntX, Halloween Extreme, ScareLA, National Haunters Convention, West Coast Haunters Convention, Halloween & HauntFest, Canadian Haunted Attractions Conference, Midsummer Scream, Chicago Frights, Lakeland ZombieFest, and Florida Haunters Annual Ocala Make-n-Take/Social.

OUR LOCATION:
The SEHEC show is in Central Florida and is conveniently located about 75 miles from Universal Studios, Disney World and Sea World.
2300 SW 17th Rd, Ocala, FL 34471

 


SOCIALIZING AND NETWORKING:
SEHEC offers plenty of time to meet-up, catch-up, share ideas, converse, swap props, discuss bigger plans, trade prop designs, and enjoy good ol’ conversations.

TRANSPORTATION:
We are coordinating transportation from/to our partner hotel, the Ocala Hilton, on the night of the “Haunted Eye Ball” (Saturday evening) which is just two miles away from the convention’s venue. That way, you can arrive in costume and eat, drink and dance, but not worry about driving yourself (or loved-one) back to the hotel after you have indulged.

HOTEL:
Host Hotel for Lodging is the Ocala Hilton.

WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?
Kids Creepy Crafting Area: Admission for children under 12 is FREE, but if your youngster wants to join in on the fun, for just $10 at the door, kids ages 5 to 12 will receive $25 worth of goodies that includes three cool Halloween craft projects (see images below) to put together at the kids crafting area under guided supervision. They also get a wooden 3″x 8″ hand-made car or truck and a Pumpkin Masters carving kit, both of which they get to keep for FREE, even if the Halloween crafting projects aren’t purchased. Face Painting will also be available in this area of the convention!!

 

 

KEEPING IT REAL:
Safety is always a concern with groups. We will have security personnel present throughout the event to make sure we have a safe and secure venue. There is also 24-hour video surveillance.
