Awards will also be given to the Virginia Auctioneer of the Year and an induction into the VAA Hall of Fame. Auction companies excelling in marketing and advertising will also be recognized and awarded.

    The weekend will feature a speech at Saturday's luncheon from newly elected Virginia State Senator Bryce Reeves from the 17th District. The media is welcome to attend these events.

    The VAA and its members will be celebrating over five decades of service at this year's conference. With auctioneers and auctions becoming extremely popular on television and other media, this is an excellent opportunity for journalists to speak with real Virginia auctioneers about the current state of the auction industry. Auctioneers are far more than fast-talking sales people. They'll be brushing up at educational seminars ranging from technology in the auction industry to how to grow your auction business.

    Every year, over a quarter-trillion dollars in property and assets are sold by auctioneers. The auction industry continues to grow, becoming a popular method for selling goods and services for many industries in the United States. The auction industry is vast and diverse with auctioneers specializing in a variety of markets, such as art, antiques, automobiles, machinery, real estate, personal property, and charity.
