ScareLA Convention Announces 2015 Expansion Plans
The Los Angeles Fan Favorite Con Set to Launch Tickets Pre-Sale; Relocates to the Pasadena Convention Center Opening to a National Audience; Adds Bigger Show Floor, Entertainment and More; Celebrates the Love for Horror this Valentine’s Weekend
Feb. 13, 2015 - LOS ANGELES -- ScareLA, the Southern California Halloween convention, is excited to announce its expansion to a new venue, the Pasadena Convention Center for the event’s 2015 edition on August 8 and 9, 2015. The move will increase the con’s show floor to over 100,000 sq. ft. to accommodate a growing list of vendors, attractions, and entertainment. Tickets presale is scheduled to launch within the following week with aggressive discounts for fans and e-mail list subscribers.
"ScareLA 2015 is off to a great start with our expansion into the Pasadena Convention Center," said Lora Ivanova, ScareLA Executive Producer and Co-founder. "What that means for our fans is: more spooky vendors, easier access to classes and stage content, bigger interactive haunt exhibits and hotels within walking distance for anyone coming from out of town or wishing to make this a true mid-summer Halloween staycation. Our team is busy curating our 2015 programming and cannot wait to share our scary passion with Los Angeles this August!"
Debuting in 2013, ScareLA was created to celebrate the rich Southern California Halloween industry and community, from its iconic seasonal theme park events, to stand-alone haunted attractions and even home haunts. The event has become a mecca for horror lovers on the West Coast and beyond extending the Halloween season through the summer. Attracting nearly 4,000 guests in 2013, and more than 6,000 in 2014, ScareLA has become one of the fastest growing independent conventions in the U.S. to-date.
"We're very excited by ScareLA's rapid growth, and the Pasadena Convention Center allows us to provide room for more guests, more exhibitors, larger displays, and bigger monsters,” says ScareLA Executive Producer and Co-Founder David Markland.
Featuring multiple parking lots, hotels, convenient public transportation, and fantastic dining options all within walking distance, the Pasadena Convention Center makes attending ScareLA easier than ever before.
The 2015 ScareLA program will take advantage of the new venue’s larger stages to host exclusive presentations from fan favorites such as Knott’s Scary Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest and more!
Guests returning to ScareLA will find a larger show floor with more Halloween/horror vendors, expanded classroom and workshop spaces, and a wide variety of live entertainment and immersive “mini haunt” experiences.
