71st International Auctioneers Conference & Show

The National Auctioneers Association is celebrating 71 years of auction excellence at their 71st International Auctioneers Conference and Show. Held July 14 -18 at the Town & Country Hotel in San Diego, California, 900+ professionals will gather for four exciting days of education, networking, and fun for the whole family!

The wave is coming. Are you ready?
Anyone can buy a surfboard and call themselves a surfer, but they might just end up floating around the ocean waiting for their ankles to get grazed by a shark. The real challenge is: How do you become a great surfer?
The first step is to know which waves are suitable for you, what variables create ideal waves, and how to read the forecast. By spending 80 percent of your sessions in waves that suit you, you will learn to surf faster. Conference & Show offers suitable waves for all experience levels. From novice to veteran, everyone has something different they need from Conference.
The auction industry is changing and we’re here for the ride. The water is ready. Are you?
