Having left its mark on Indianapolis, and already garnering a huge buzz for its upcoming Atlanta show, DAYS OF THE DEAD sets it sites to expand again, this time to the Windy City.
First the Infection hit Indianapolis, IN in what became one of the most talked about debut conventions in years. Next, the Infection is set to spread to the Atlanta, GA area, bringing the succesful event to the south eastern United States, a region sorely needing a horror show to call its own. And now, the highly acclaimed DAYS OF THE DEAD looks to make its mark in one of the largest cities in the United States.
It is with great pleasure that we officially announce DAYS OF THE DEAD IV, coming to the Chicagoland area, November 16th-18th, 2012, and happening at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg in Schaumburg, IL.
"With our DAYS OF THE DEAD: Atlanta show, we wanted to bring the magic of the Indianapolis show and the midwest's appreciation for horror to a region that was sorely needing a good horror convention for many, many year.", says DAYS OF THE DEAD co-founder and co-promtoer, as well as Chicago native, Adolfo Dorta. "But in coming to Chicago, we're coming into a city that has a very large and long established horror culture. The midwest in general, but very specifically Chicago, is very big on all thinkgs spooky, and in coming to the Windy City we definitely want to take it to the next level. While you might see some overlap between our Indy show and Atlanta show, our Chicago show will definitely be a totally exclusive affair and have events and guests that are all its own. This is home for Rick and I, and we definitely want to do Chi-town proud."
Taking place in Schaumburg's commerce area and surrounded by dozens of restaurants, stores, a movie theater, the Woodfield Mall, and many other local attractions, the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg is located a short drive or bus ride from downtown Chicago, providing all the benefits of being located near a major metropolis without the congestion, traffic, and expensive hotel prices.
In fact, the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg will be offering the lowest discount rate of any DAYS OF THE DEAD show to date, with convention rate of only $89 a night!
Ticket and hotel information, as well as guest and event announcements for DAYS OF THE DEAD IV will be coming soon!
