Mission: To promote and grow the safe celebration of Halloween and year-round costumed events throughout North America.
The Halloween & Costume Association (HCA) (formally the Halloween Industry Association) was formally incorporated in 2005 as a 501(c)(6) trade organization to promote and build the celebration of Halloween in the United States. HCA represents businesses involved in the manufacture, importation or distribution of Halloween products including costumes, decor, novelty items and party supplies. HCA has grown to become the preeminent authority on Halloween and serves as a non-profit voice of the industry.
