TransWorld’s Room Escape Conference was held this year for the second time between 1-5 May in New York. This conference is a dedicated escape room trade show. It is organized by the same folks who put together the Halloween & Attraction show, but it is a separate, escaperoom-focused trade show.
Hosted for the first time in Chicago in August of 2016, it drew in a crowd of over 1,700 people. Most attendees were active escape room owners or prospective owners. There were also a few escape room enthusiasts in attendance.
This year’s conference is reported to be larger, including seminars, networking events, and a post-show escape room tour.
