ARRL to Leverage Social Media for Hamvention Coverage:

ARRL will be taking to social media from Hamvention, when the show begins on May 19 from its new venue, the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio. The ARRL Hamvention team will be posting updates, observations, and videos, and may even stream live video via Facebook Live.

"This will be the first convention where we've done an all-out digital media push," ARRL Publications Manager Steve Ford, WB8IMY, pointed out.

ARRL Media and Public Relations Manager Sean Kutzko, KX9X, and QST Managing Editor Becky Schoenfeld, W1BXY, will be on the show floor, wandering among the exhibits, and visiting the forums for all 3 days of Hamvention, which wraps up on May 21.

Keep an eye on ARRL's social media feeds on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as on the ARRL home page news crawl for updates "and maybe a few surprises," Schoenfeld said. Friday and Saturday summaries will be posted on the ARRL website.
