Annually, National Auctioneers Week is the week leading up to the first Saturday in May. For 2021, this falls on April 26 – May 1, which is National Auctioneers Day.
You may notice more people talking about auctions this week. It’s not a fluke. It’s National Auctioneers Week, celebrating one of the oldest professions in the world!
For decades, National Auctioneers Day was celebrated at local and regional levels. On Sept. 6, 2017, Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC) read the NAA’s resolution into record regarding National Auctioneers Week and National Auctioneers Day (seen below).
Every year, NAA members take part in a week-long promotional campaign that highlights the auction method of marketing. These promotions include social media marketing, community conversations and a special celebration on National Auctioneers Day for the whole industry.
Congressman Duncan said, “As an auctioneer, I saw first hand the purest form of buying and selling. Auctioneers bring buyers and sellers together where the highest price is established through competitive bidding. Auctions continue to be the fairest, most transparent and effective means of establishing fair market value.”
Auctions work in good times an in hard times, which means there has never been a better time to hire an auctioneer than right now. Find more information on different ways auctioneers help people by checking out the rest of our blog.
