“Where be Tomorrow?”
Yeah, if Dayton was not to be the location of the “big one” of annual Amateur Radio convocations, where would it be?
Several things would need to come together:
Ok, so I borrowed the classic real estate valuation guideline, but really “location” is likely to be the primary factor.
A decent location would have:
- Interstate access
- Near or at airline access
- Suitable Exhibition Hall
- Hotels & Infrastructure Support
- Sponsoring Group(s)
Suggestions have been trickling in, with the major Ohio towns mentioned, Indy, Kansas City, several locals in Kentucky & Tennessee, suggestions of combining the Hamvention with one of the newer regional events, and an interesting idea of having the Hamvention rotate between four cities.
Will cover more on thoughts about “Where be Tomorrow?” in my last thoughts on Dayton 2009, as their definitely is an interest to locate to a quality venue.
