The Scene on the 2015 MPC vendor floor last year. It was busy! This year we will have 50 tables spread through the UWM Ballroom East.

Time is flying! We’re going to move ahead a few spaces today by mentioning tables on our vendor floor that will be used by people who are also guest speakers at the conference. If you click on their names, it’ll take you to a web entry that will give you more information.

Stop by their tables, get a book signed, talk to them about their podcasts or radio shows, ask your most burning questions, and talk to them about all the other cool stuff they’re involved with.

Shepherd Express presents: “Q & A with Katrina Weidman of Paranormal Lockdown,” Saturday, Wisconsin Room

Katrina Weidman became actively involved in paranormal research while attending Penn State University. While pursuing degrees in Integrative Arts and Theater and a minor in music technology, she was also able to pursue her passion for the paranormal by becoming case manager for the famed Paranormal Research Society (originally founded as a Penn State student organization). PRS (and Katrina) became the focus of the A&E channel docudrama Paranormal State, which aired from 2007-2011.

Katrina then served as host to the Chiller channel’s Real Fear: the Truth Behind the Movies, which explored horror movies based on actual events. It has been rated Chiller’s number one original program.

Katrina currently co-stars (along with Nick Groff, of Ghost Adventures) on the hit Destination America show Paranormal Lockdown. The popular and acclaimed first season that aired earlier this year led to a renewal for a second season. A Halloween 2-hour special airs just a couple weeks after our conference, on October 28. That special will document Katrina and Nick (along with Haunted Collector star John Zaffis) on their investigation of the Black Monk House in Yorkshire, England.

At the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference, Katrina will be featured in a special Q and A session facilitated by Mike Huberty and Wendy Lynn Staats, hosts of the podcast See You On The Other Side. They’ll talk about Katrina’s experiences on the first season of Paranormal Lockdown, and what we can expect for season 2. It’ll be followed by a Q and A from the audience, and an autograph session– Katrina will have photos available to sign for $20.
