Attendance Up at Hamvention

This year’s Hamvention Rally saw visitor numbers increase to 29.296, making the 2017 show the most success ever.

Overcoming the challenges of relocation to the Greene County Expo Centre and Fairgrounds, the feedback from attendees has been overall positive. Helping to make the transition a success were 657 volunteers from around the world.

Whilst there were some teething problems with the new venue, with traffic, weather and parking issues, we were able to resolve most issues before the end of the event

There appears to be good will between Greene County, Xenia Township, City of Xenia officials and the Greene County Fairgrounds and Exposition Centre Advisory Board to build upon the successful show to make following events better including possible new attractions.
