MCM Electronics Recap of Hamvention 2015!

Posted by Greg on May 18, 2015

 

MCM Electronics returned for a second year to the annual Hamvention in Dayton on May 15-17! 

Hamvention is sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association and this year their theme is makers as they wholeheartedly welcome the maker community to their convention. Hamvention features hundreds of vendors and is attended by over 20,000 electronics, makers and amateur radio enthusiasts from around the world. 

We were at booths 307-311 and primarily featured Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi Kits & Accessories
 
In addition to great deals we featured several demos at our tables:
- 3D Printer Demos
- Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming System 
- Raspberry Pi Minecraft
- Raspberry Pi Media Center 
- Raspberry Pi NES Gaming System 
- Raspberry Pi Desktop PC
 
Walking around the six large vendor rooms plus the outdoor flea market was a unique experience in electronics, maker goods and amateur radio. Also with over 20,000 people in attendance you could find people of many varying interests in topics including quad copters, laser cutters, 3D printers, HAM radio, classic electronics and much more. While is was held in the MidWest there were many people from all around the country and the world including some of the vendors which included groups from UAE (United Arab Emirates) and the UK!
