Stability has long been a top priority for Hamvention organizers. The decades long run it enjoyed at Hara Arena was truly a rare thing for an annual show that attracts tens of thousands. I’m sure the folks at DARA would be happy to be in a similar situation with its new venue. Given that, it’s not surprising they would work fo such a deal. And having secured it, we can assume that Hamvention has also been good for Greene County.
The Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA) has signed a 5-year agreement to keep Dayton Hamvention® at the Greene County Expo Center. The agreement was announced on September 9 by Hamvention General Chairman Jack Gerbs, WB8SCT.
“It has been a wonderful experience working with the Expo Center team in the development of this agreement,” Gerbs said. “With the 5-year agreement signed, the Expo Center and Hamvention can move forward with additional enhancements to the facilities.”
