Let’s hear a round of applause for our 2015 speakers and panels! Our guests include a variety of experts on subjects of the paranormal. You’ve probably seen some of them on shows like Finding Bigfoot, My Ghost Story, Ghost Adventures: Aftershocks, Monster Quest, Monsters and Mysteries, and The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence, among many other media outlets. I’d like to thank the many other people who inquired about speaking at the event. We had a limited number of speaker time slots, and those filled up quickly. We are hoping for a bigger event with more speakers in 2016.
If you click on the speaker’s name, it will lead you to their website. We will be updating this site with speaker bios and talk titles in February and March 2015. Other activities, such as potential documentary screenings, will be updated soon as info becomes available. We still have vendor tables, volunteer and sponsorship opportunities available, see respective tabs on this site. And now, without further ado…
