Alberta Auctioneers Association 2020 Convention

As the momentum builds towards the 2020 convention here in Drayton Valley, I must say you’re not going to want to miss this one!!! It’s a jam packed weekend of fun and entertainment. When it came time to create this convention we asked the members for some input on what they wanted to see and that’s what we used to help shape this one. From a fun Vegas themed charity casino on Thursday night (all proceeds going to the Stollery Children’s Hospital), to a full day of exciting competitions on Friday. Including the first Grand Championship competition, this is for any auctioneer who has won any auction title, Canada or U.S.A, this group of auctioneers will all be competing for a $10,000.00 prize!! With us introducing the new competition we have added a little twist on the All-Round. Whoever is crowned 2020 All-Round Champion gets an automatic paid entry to the Grand Champion Competition.

I would like to send a huge thank you to Team Auctions as all of the competitions will be held at their facility and they have agreed to open the competition to
the general public for both buyers and sellers. Lots of the members and passed competitors wanted to see more of a complete auction environment added to the competition so that’s what we are going to deliver. Saturday brings more excitement to the weekend as after breakfast we are hosting a curling bonspiel with the winning team receiving a ‘mystery prize’. As you now know there is lots going on and way to much fun, make sure your schedules are cleared so you can attend this upcoming convention! We are very excited to host everyone here in Drayton Valley and can’t wait to see you all there!
