New Product Showcase
Signs, signs, everywhere a sign
We are quickly approaching the 2019 Hamvention, which is shaping up to be a spectacular show. The ARRL is having a special event and AMSAT is celebrating its 50th. There are many opportunities to pass our knowledge on to the new generation of hams.
Mentoring the next generation isn’t just a phrase for 2019 Hamvention but is a reflection of Amateur Radio has meant for many of us in our various stages in the hobby. Feel free to tailor your displays and efforts toward education and mentoring in conjunction with our overall theme for the 2019 Dayton Hamvention.
To address the elephant in the room, we are working hard to address all of the concerns brought up with the clearspan tents. While we would love to put everyone in a building for 2019, that is not a reality and free spaces in the buildings are few and far between. As space becomes available, we are contacting those of you that have requests in and trying to consolidate space as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Badges and Parking Passes
As a reminder for 2019, our badge and parking pass policy will remain the same. Simply put:
Vendors get one parking pass FREE with each booth purchased. There are ZERO extras available and none will be sold due to limited space. If you need extra parking, general parking is available just outside the show gates and your vendor pass will get you in before official public times.
Vendors get 3 free booth badges with the purchase of each booth, any extras that you select in the online portal are beyond the 3 free badges.
Final Note: Badge names are hit or miss this year through the online portal. If you log in and don’t see your names, please send us a list to firstname.lastname@example.org subject: “Badge names” and we’ll make sure your badges get entered and printed accurately.
Packets by parcel
For the first time at our new location, we’re going to try shipping vendor packets again. This was a luxury that we enjoyed at Hara and I’d like to reinstate the packet shipping for 2019. Planning this year isn’t nearly as intensive and we should have the time and organization to mail those out.
We anticipate beginning our packet mailing the first week in April and conclude before April 15th.
If you would like to opt out of having your packet shipped, please email us at email@example.com subject: packets. We’ll be sure to hold your packet for pickup.
We will not be shipping any International vendor packets because customs has become unpredictable and packets may take 2 weeks or 2 months to arrive depending on the inspector.
Website has it all
A reminder for those who do not wish to use the online portal for ordering, all forms, maps and information for manual ordering is available at the Hamvention.org website on the Inside Exhibits web page
You may also find our FAQ page helpful if you have questions.
A friendly reminder that early pricing ends March 15th. We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2019 Dayton Hamvention.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
From all of us at Dayton Hamvention, Merry Christmas! We hope all of you have had a great year. We look forward in great anticipation of 2019 and hope all of you will join us again for another spectacular Hamvention.
Reservations should begin the first or second week in January. Keep an eye out for our announcement emails and our website. Once reservations begin, we should reach capacity quickly. As a reminder, all vendors who were in attendance for 2018 will be guaranteed a spot (most likely the same spot) in the show. If you have any problems editing your staff in our online portal, please email us a list and we’ll ensure your badges get printed accurately.
New Product Showcase
We will continue with the New Product Showcase with some changes to it to be announced closer to the show.
Fairground Site Infrastructure
We are continuing to improve all spaces and will release those improvements as they become available. As many of you know from the press release earlier this year, the physical building to replace the clears-pan tents is off the table for 2019. This is outside our control and we continue to work with Greene County Fairgrounds Complex to bring better accommodations to our vendors.
No major booth arrangement changes are anticipated and occupied spaces from the prior year will be respected.
There are two significant changes to the exhibitor’s contract for 2019: Exhibitor’s responsibility and use of remote-controlled aircraft. See contract for details
