Last month, during the annual Halloween & Attractions Show in the USA there was a section dedicated to escape rooms called Escape Room City.
TransWorld were the organisers of Escape Room City and are now organizing an upcoming event called Chicago’s Room Escape Conference. The three day conference is being held from August 12th – 14th at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Centre in Chicago.
Owners, vendors and enthusiasts are invited to this industry event focused on developing the escape room experience. The main drawcards of this event include the trade show floor and the numerous seminars on offer (further details to be announced).
The trade show floor will have vendors selling new and off the shelf technology to power new escape room ideas. Vendors from the USA and Canada will be showing off demos throughout the weekend with tickets to access the trade show floor costing $25 USD (early bird) or $30 USD (on the day).
Also on offer are tours of local escape rooms for conference attendees and multiple opportunities to network over drinks and breakfast.
Attendees will get to wander across a 60,000 square foot convention center, with the conference space for seminars opening from 9.30am/10am to 5pm throughout the conference. Additional tickets are still to be released for people who want to access the escape room seminars or those who want VIP tickets to the event.
