Hamvention Vendor Tracker
Indoor and Outdoor Booth Assignments
Since 1952, each spring, Amateur Radio Operators (Hams) from around the world gather for a few days in Ohio. They are all there for the world’s largest gathering showcasing hundreds of vendors. Commercial and flea market vendors gather for three days at the Dayton Hamvention.
With such a large show, it is handy to know where to find your favorite vendors. With the cooperation of the event team, we produce a detailed booth tracker. The tracker shows both indoor commercial and outdoor flea market vendors. The Hamvention web site always has the most up-to-date details on the event.
Beginning in 2017, the show is moving from HARA arena in Trotwood, Ohio. The new location, Greene County Fair & Exposition Center in Xenia, Ohio, about 20 miles south-east of HARA.
Each year, we prepare detailed booth listings, which are all presented below to aid in navigating to your favorite vendors. Refer back often in the spring as we update the booth information on a daily basis.

January 30: Seems that the Outdoor vendor booth listing was posted by mistake. We have removed it from the site for now.
January 19: We now have ad idea of how the outdoor flea market area is going to look. Hamvention has released their booth layout showing all vendor locations within the track area and another area off to the west with 186 positions. (removed on January 30).
January 12: The Hamvention team have released preliminary commercial vendor booth positioning. They have produced a Booth Overview, Building 1 , Building 2 , Building 3 and Building 5 summary. At this point, they have not released publicly layouts for the flea markets. As we get more information, we will be sure to post the information here.
With the move of Hamvention to its new home for 2017, the team is busy setting up booth positioning.
We expect to see updated booth information early in 2017 as plans are finalized.
