The 70th HamCation® will be remembered as a fantastic event, with a huge crowd and beautiful weather. We welcomed over 17,000 people over the 3 days of the show.
The ARRL National Convention and Expo attracted a lot of Hams from all over the world. The new ARRL president Rick Roderick and almost the whole ARRL staff were present and their booths were visited by a large number of people.
Records were broken in all areas of the event. Forums were spread over 2 days in 2 locations. With a total of 29 Forums we were able to accommodate 7 forums simultaneously.
The HamCation® committee did a fantastic job. They worked hard all year long to make this 70th anniversary a very special one. Of course without the help of over 150 very dedicated volunteers we could not have been so successful.
One thing is certain HamCation® is growing larger each year!
The beautiful weather sure helped a lot to make it even more pleasant for all visitors, vendors and volunteers.
HamCation® 2017 preparations have already started and again we are planning a fantastic event. The dates are February 10,11 and 12.
Last but not least I’d like to thank everyone for their support of Orlando HamCation®.
We hope to see you all next year in Orlando.
