HauntedIllinois.com's Review of American Hauntings' 2019 Haunted America Conference
The biggest and best supernatural event of the year!
In late June, HauntedIllinois.com traveled to Alton, IL for the 23rd Annual Haunted America Conference. As the name implies, this event caters to paranormal professionals and enthusiasts. Hosted by American Hauntings' Troy Taylor & Lisa Taylor-Horton, the Haunted America Conference featured a large vendor room, guest speakers, panel discussions and more.

During May and early June, various news channels were reporting that flooding had occurred in downtown Alton. Two weeks before the show, American Hauntings sent out an email letting everyone know that the flooding was minimal and that it wouldn't affect the conference or related after-hours activities. After arriving in Alton, I found that the news reports were indeed exaggerated. Most of the downtown businesses were not affected and since the conference was on the other side of town, there was no impact to any of the proceedings. Luckily those overblown reports of flooding didn't seem to have much of an effect on attendance.

Throughout the weekend, renowned paranormal experts were scheduled to speak on various topics related to the paranormal. During the two days of the conference, the speakers were Dr. Alan Brown, Allison Jornlin, Brandon Massullo, Troy Taylor, Karen A. Dahlman and Richard Estep.

In between the guest speaker timeslots, show attendees had the opportunity to walk through the vendor room. Exhibiting companies offered many great products and services. Some of the products included framed portraits, custom artwork, spiritual items, books, t-shirts and more. Other vendors were providing psychic readings. There were also other tables occupied by promotional websites, podcasts and media companies, all serving paranormal enthusiasts.

On the last day of the show a huge prize raffle was held. I didn't keep a count, but there had to be dozens of prizes raffled off. After the vendor floor closed for the day, there were many after-hours activities including workshops, demonstrations and ghost hunts.

The weekend was a lot of fun. This is definitely a "must see" event! The dates for next year have already been announced, so we look forward to seeing everyone at the 24th Annual Haunted America Conference on June 26-27, 2020.
