The HamCation® organization has been made aware of a scam under the name of HamCation®, which we would like to make you aware of.
There seems to be a group of individuals who use the name of Orlando Commercial Vendor Supply Services and inform you that they are officials from Orlando HamCation®.
They offer to book hotel rooms for HamCation®.  If you show any interest, you are than connected to another individual who in return try to obtain your credit card information.
Please be advised, Orlando HamCation® has never and will never work with a third party company for hotel reservations. 

We strongly advised that if you are contacted by this company, or any company saying that they are working for HamCation to hang up immediately. Please do not get caught up in this scam.
For a list of preferred hotels and to make your reservations yourself, please click the Hotels tab at the top of the page and use the links provided on our website.

Thank you
2015 HamCation Committee Chairman


HamCation Chairman's Message

Thanks to the support of our visitors, vendors and volunteers HamCation® 2014 was a great event.
We had to endure a lot of rain, but overall we saw happy people all over the place.
We had 12,000+ visitors over the three days. In all areas we saw growing interest.

The number of Commercial vendors, Swaps and Tailgaters shows a healthy development. Also the number of RV guest gives a positive result.
Many vendors reported great sales in the commercial areas and Swaps, even the Tailgaters reported fantastic sales when the sunshine returned Sunday.
Orlando was the first of the ARRL Centennial events and we welcomed the ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN and her staff in the well decorated ARRL booth.
Many visitors took the opportunity to meet her, some included a photo opportunity. ARRL welcomed many new members and renewals, the booth was very busy.

HamCation® was honored by such a great ARRL Centennial delegation.
HamCation® 2014 was also the host of many well visited Forums on two sites, and with interesting subjects. It was a valuable and appreciated part of the show.
The many volunteers in all areas were the strong base for a great show and we look forward to see you again in February 2015.
Some of them worked at the Fairgrounds during the exhibition day, but also in the preparation phase, a fantastic effort.

HamCation® is easy to contact by Email: info@hamcation.com, by Phone via the HamCation® hotline 24/7 407-841-0874 or outside Florida 800-214-7541.
Most of the time we pick up the phone, otherwise leave us a message on voicemail and we will return your call ASAP.
It is strongly advised to make your reservations in time and get your paperwork in advance. It saves you time at the gates. Tickets ordered in advance are $ 12.00, it saves you $ 2.00 and you are eligible for the ‘Early Bird Prize’ drawing and have a chance on a great mobile radio.

Please use the HamCation® website as your primary source of information. The site will be updated regularly in all areas. You will find as usual reservation documents for Tickets, RV guests, Swaps Tables and information for Commercial vendors. Forums information will be available as soon as it is finalized by the organization and presenters.
The HamCation® Organization also made for this show arrangements with three hotels with special HamCation® pricing.
Based on the experience in 2014 make your reservations in time, otherwise you miss the special HamCation® room pricing.

The preparations of HamCation® 2015 are in full swing now.
I hope to welcome you to HamCation® 2015 at the Fairgrounds in Orlando.
