February 1-3, 2019 | West Des Moines, IA | Sheraton Hotel
This three-day event includes seminars from a variety of national speakers and this year we are including a continuing education seminar on Thursday night with Kyle Swicegood. Need Real Estate CEUs? The pre-convention gets you 8* CEUs (*CEU approval pending). On Saturday afternoon, there will be a preliminary round of the Iowa Auctioneer contest with the audience bidding on the items and 3 judges scoring the auctioneers. The auctioneers will be competing to fill the top 20 spots to advance on to the finals held at the Iowa State Fair in August, as well as who will be named Rookie Auctioneer Champion.
Join state fair patrons on Tuesday, August 14 on the Anne & Bill Riley stage at 9:00 AM to help support this amazing cause while witnessing 20 of the finest auctioneers represent the Midwest. Can’t make it to the fair on Tuesday? No problem! You may still support this great event by going to bidspotter.com and placing prior bids or joining in live through bidspotter.com.
A very big THANK YOU Lowe's Compaines, Inc. of the Des Moines metro for making this event great by donating all of our auction items. Our auctioneers can showcase their talent while working to help benefit three children’s hospitals. Each year the sales of the auction items will be donated to one of the three children's hospitals on a rotating basis - Blank Children’s Hospital of Des Moines, University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
