Vectren Corp. agrees to three-year deal with Dayton Air Show

“The Vectren sponsorship is huge for the stability of the event as the title sponsor,” said Brenda Kerfoot, air show general manager.

Record high temperatures dropped attendance by 38 percent at this year’s show when 47,000 people viewed aviation performers at Dayton International Airport, officials have said.

Kerfoot said the show expects a “slight loss” financially, but won’t know final figures for weeks. The organization has reserve savings to cover the deficit, she said.

Next year’s show has tentative dates of July 20-21.

The Dayton/Montgomery County Convention and Visitors Bureau has estimated the air show has a more than $3 million impact on the regional economy.
