The First Videocassette Collectors Event is Held

by | Feb 5, 1979

Videocassette collectors gather at a Ramada Inn in Freemont, OH for the first annual Video Collectors of Ohio event. It is regarded as the first event dedicated to the swapping and duping of videocassettes. Because prerecorded videocassettes were just taking off with only a few titles legitimately released, collectors resorted to trading (mainly on the Betamax format).
