More than 12,000 have registered to attend the first QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo, August 8 – 9, QSO Today host Eric Guth, 4Z1UG, said this week.
“Since the Expo is a completely new experience for the ham radio community, it’s great that so many people are excited and already registered,” he said. “And with almost 3 weeks before the event, the number of registrants continues to increase.” Attendance is free, and there are early-bird prize incentives for registering by July 24.
More than a typical web meeting, the Expo is built on a live virtual platform commonly used by Fortune 500 companies and major universities. The platform simulates a convention experience with an exhibit hall and booths staffed by live attendants, a speaker auditorium, and even a lobby. Attendance just requires an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
