Midsummer Scream to Take Over Entire Long Beach Convention Center in 2019

Sure, Halloween just passed, but that doesn’t mean we’re not looking ahead to exciting Halloween happenings for 2019 right? Yesterday Midsummer Scream sent out its first major announcement about next year’s event beyond the 2019 dates, which were announced at Midsummer Scream 2018. Next year, Midsummer Scream will be the biggest ever and will be taking over the entire Long Beach Convention Center.

Returning to the convention center on August 3 and 4, 2019, Midsummer Scream will be housed in Halls A, B, and C as well as the upstairs and downstairs of the lobby/concourse and Grand Ballroom. The expanded layout will give the convention twice the amount of room for exhibitors and show floor experiences, as well as education, demonstrations, live entertainment, panels, screenings and more. Check out the map below that showcases how the layout has evolved since 2016.
