We expect it to be even more popular in 2016 because we've really pulled out all of the stops with more speakers, more special events, more tours, more ghost hunts, a traveling museum of haunted artifacts, and more! “

Returning for the conference is Ghostly Talk Radio, the best radio show ever produced on the paranormal.

New to the conference is Planet Weird HQ which will display artifacts of the strange, bizarre, and haunted. You can see, visit, touch, and handle all of the haunted, cursed, and downright weird stuff that they'll have on display.

Taylor said, “A lot of our attendees come back every year because it may be the only time they get to see old friends and others they've met through our event. I think there's a lot to learn, a lot to share, and a lot of fun to be had at the conference. The majority of our guests would never miss it.”

Guests will be able to gather research on ghosts and hauntings that they won't get anywhere else; meet other ghost hunters from all over America; and visit Alton -- a place that teems with both history and haunts!

General admission is $50 for both days, with tickets for after hour ghost hunts and special events still available! Check out to reserve your spot!
