The Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau has opened registration for the official EAA AirVenture Private Housing Bureau. Homeowners within 10 miles of the EAA Convention Grounds are invited to rent their homes or rooms during the Convention. Those interested can obtain and submit registration forms online at www.visitoshkosh.com or can stop by the Oshkosh Convention & Visitor Bureau (OCVB) office at 2401 West Waukau Avenue in Oshkosh, just west of the Hawthorn Inn.
Each year, hundreds of AirVenture visitors find comfortable, affordable lodging for their week in Oshkosh by renting an entire home. Larger groups of visitors or those working for EAA exhibitors have especially found this option helpful.
New this year, homeowners have the option of uploading up to three photos of their home or rooms for guests to view online. Other new features of the EAA housing website this year include more specific search options for the listings, as well as a Google Map inset for each house listed in coordination with the EAA Grounds. Visitors will be able to obtain private housing information via www.visitoshkosh.com beginning February 1. Cost to register homes or rooms is $35 or $50 after May 1. Dates of this year's EAA AirVenture Convention are July 26-August 1, 2010.
For questions about registering your home or rooms during EAA AirVenture 2010, please call the Oshkosh Convention & Visitors Bureau at 920-303-9200.
