  • Transworld Changes Dates on 2021 Show

    Hello everyone-

    It's hard to believe during these challenging times that the holiday season is here already! As we all scramble to come up with creative ways to safely celebrate with family and friends, we want to update you on the status of our 2021 show. Due to the spike in numbers regarding COVID-19 we have made the difficult decision to push back our show dates from March to May. Our new dates are May 6-9, 2021.

    Please know TransWorld is very committed to producing the best show we can in 2021. To deliver on that promise, we are working hard to run the show in accordance with the current COVID guidelines from the CDC, the State of Missouri, the City of St. Louis, America's Center, and our hotel and vendor partners. Guidelines may change and we recommend that you frequently review the "Health and Safety" page on our sites for updates. The health and safety of our exhibitors, buyers and staff is of the utmost importance to us.

    The exhibit space your company originally reserved for the 2020 Shows has been reassigned to you for the 2021 Shows. Your booth number and square footage will remain the same If you have any questions regarding your space. Please feel free to contact Rich Bianco at or call Rich directly at 412.812.1773. Also if you had bought sponsorship for the 2020 show and had questions feel free to email Jen Thaler at or call her at 847.323.5109.

    To assist you in additional planning, please refer to our websites to review the Exhibitor Kit, Show Rules and Regulations, Vendor Order Forms, and Hotel pages. All of this information will be posted within the next few weeks.

    We understand that this has been a very frustrating process for everyone. We truly appreciate everyone's support for our shows in such uncertain times. We are looking forward to seeing all of you in St. Louis May 6-9, 2021 for an exciting event that will bring you products, seminars and networking opportunities to jump start your business for the 2021 season!
    Regarding booked hotel rooms:

    We are currently working with the hotels on a smooth transition of room reservations. It will take a few weeks for the reservations departments to move the reservations as well as send emails to you, if appropriate. In addition, it will take the hotels a few weeks to send TransWorld updated information for our travel page (new deposit dates, cut off date, booking links, etc.) Please give the hotels a few weeks to implement the changes in your reservations as outlined below.

    All current hotel reservations for the 2021 March show dates will either be rebooked or rolled over to the new May 2021 dates by the hotels. Hotel procedures differ at each property. If your hotel reservation has been cancelled and rebooked you will receive a new confirmation number via email. If your reservation has been rolled over, you may not receive a new confirmation number. If you have any questions please contact the hotel directly.

    Please review the list below to determine whether your reservation is being rebooked or rolled over.

    Already started ordering from vendors but still plan to come to Transworld. Might not order much but looking forward to it all the same. The dates don't really work because we've already started upgrades.

      I'm just letting everyone know that I cancelled my two seminars at the Transworld show 2021. I will not be doing the seminar on escape room detail or how to increase revenue at your escapes/haunts.

      I told Transworld months ago I wasn't going to speak, but I had no idea they were rolling over the seminars from last year. My assumption was they would start over so don't include me. Once I found out the seminars are being rolled over I called them and apologized that I couldn't do the seminars this year. This isn't TW fault ... I just have no interest in doing seminars this year.

      So I think they're going to find replacements for the topics, or maybe you can switch out to a different topic from a different speaker.

      Again very sorry and again its NOT Transworld fault. I'm just not into it right now.
