2012 Early Television Convention
Give us your input on the 2012 Convention
The 2012 Early Television Convention was held on Friday,
Saturday, May 5, and Sunday, May 6 at the Early Television Museum
in Hilliard, Ohio. This year, lunch and presentations were at the museum. The Banquet was at Abner's, 2 blocks from the museum.
Total auction sales were just under $10,000. Donations to the museum were just under $4,000, with some more pledged but not yet received. The donation total is a record for the convention. Thanks to all who donated.
We had 109 attendees, and 65 at the Saturday dinner, compared to 106 and 62 last year.
Thanks to the presenters and all who helped with making this a great show.
Here is information on the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Conventions.
