Annual Conference

A highlight of each year is the annual gathering in the Rochester, NY area for a multi-day event of fellowship, information exchange, flea marketing and the sharing of communications history and technology.  In addition to a series of presentations and the flea market each year an AWA Museum open house provides all to explore changes to the collection displays over the past year.


Mark your calendars for the Antique Wireless Association Conference, September 27-30, 2023, at the RIT Inn and Conference Center in Henrietta, NY over the border from Rochester.   The Conference Theme for 2023 is The Broadcast Boom Years Of The 1920s. Factors and sub themes associated with the main theme can be, if germane to the topic:  design, marketing, early broadcasting, Roaring 1920s, new, big changes in culture and human behavior, licensing issues, US Manufacturers in the 1920s, manufacturing, how radio has impacted other aspects of life, broadcast radio of the 1920s, personalities, inventors. 

Starting Thursday and running through Friday (September 28 and 29) buyers and sellers can come to the flea market for free. We invite you to register for the Conference and enjoy all that it has to offer.  You don’t need to register for the conference to sell in the flea market.
