Orlando Hits New Attendance Record
The 2017 Orlando Hamcation® set a new attendance record, which may now make it the world's third-largest hamfest.
According to the ARRL Letter, official attendance this year at Orlando was 19,000, up 2,000 from 2016 and higher than Europe's largest hamfest, "Ham Radio" in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The only two larger hamfests are the Dayton Hamvention and the Tokyo Ham Fair in Japan.
