Dayton Hamvention® is offering a free mobile app for smartphones and tablets to help attendees navigate the large-scale event, which takes place May 20-22 at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Xenia, Ohio. The app, which was introduced in 2019, is offered as part of a collaborative effort with the ARRL The National Association of Radio Amateurs®.
The free ARRL Events app is now available and already includes Hamvention’s full schedule, so attendees can browse and schedule forums, find affiliate events, and preview the full list of exhibitors. During the event, attendees can use other features of the app to follow hourly sweepstakes filled by the Dayton Hamvention Prize Committee and browse building and site maps.
Attendees are also encouraged to tap the MyProfile icon in the app to add their name and call sign, email address, and any additional information they wish to share with other Hamvention guests. Additionally, the MyBadge icon displays a QR code of your event badge that can be scanned by another attendee or exhibitor using the Scan Badge icon – instantly connecting contact information shared with other hams during the event.
The app is available for Apple and Android smart devices, or access the web browser version optimized for almost all browsers or other types of mobile devices. Visit your app store to download the app (search for “ARRL Events”) or access the links available on the ARRL EXPO webpage.
