2006 Early Television Convention

The 2006 Early Television Convention was held on Friday, April 28, Saturday, April 29, and Sunday, April 30 at the Early Television Museum in Hilliard, Ohio. Because of the cold weather we've had each year, the buffet lunch, presentations, and banquet were held at the Makoy Center, a conference facility about 2 blocks from the museum.
