Here's what you'll expect to see in the way of a venue.  This is a shot from a wellness convention held there.

A wellness convention and then a ham convention......too funny.  I guess you could call that equal time, fair and balanced, etc.

BTW, that looks great.  Indy's is much the same.  We had the NFL Experience in it during the 2012 Super Bowl, and most recently the NRA Convention.  Amazing what can be done when people give a darn.

A job fair would also be a good event.

As of May 27, the ARRL Centennial Convention website indicates that eight indoor flea market spaces have been reserved.

....and so far 88 commercial exhibitors and organizations.

A flea market space isn't a bad deal at $65.  It includes one admission badge.  Additional badges are $25.  All very similar to Hamvention prices.  The seller badges also allow access to the show before and after hours too.  Commercial booth spaces are a bargain at $225 per 10'x10' space, and include a draped table and backdrop.  Compare that to an average price of $500 for a booth at Hamvention in the lovely climate controlled confines of the beautiful Hara Arena's sweaty ball rooms.


The League convention page also mentions discounted parking rates at the 8 story garage next to the center.  I imagine one will need to get their ticket validated in the convention center's lobby.

I look forward to the League's Centennial convention.  However, it will be a small fraction of the Dayton Hamvention's size and much less flea market oriented.
