Since 1950 the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) has hosted their annual Conference & Show (Convention) somewhere in the United States. This get-together today includes seminars, classes, designation courses, large exhibition area, International Auctioneer Championship contest area attractions … and much more.

Here is a list of locations where this annual gathering has taken place (or is planned to take place) since 1950. We’ll endeavor to keep this list updated in the coming years. Each city is linked to a site with visitor information.

Numbers in parenthesis denote multiple Conference & Shows (C&S) at this location. An “*” indicates a C&S generally in the same metropolitan area as a prior C&S. For instance, Fairhaven, OH (2) would indicate the second time the C&S has been in Fairhaven, and Morning Sun (2*) would indicate the second time the C&S has been in or very near another prior C&S metropolitan area.








Here is a picture from NAA’s 1958 Convention held July 17-18-19 at the Hotel Statler in Buffalo, New York. The above gavel sits in Columbus, Ohio.
