NAA C&S 2013!
Last week, the Rasmus Auctions crew headed out to Indianapolis, Indiana for the annual National Auctioneers Association Conference and Show.
Rasmus.com brought a whopping 13 employees to the convention and a great time was had by all! Employees got the chance to sit in on seminars and group sessions about the future of the auction industry and best practices, and meet and mingle with other auctioneers from across the country. Some even tried their hand at a cool virtual auctioneering simulator at the trade show.
CEO Chris Rasmus was asked to give a seminar on transitioning to online auctions (yes, we used to do live auctions!) and the room was packed with other auctioneers looking to make the leap to internet only auctions. Chris shared information on making the most of your social media, keeping up with your buyers through email alerts, and even gave a sneak peek look at the new and improved layout of our website that is being rolled out in just a few short weeks!
Rasmus did a ton of networking, met other great auctioneers, and learned many new things from their seminars and peers while at the show. But all work and no play makes Rasmus a dull company which we are definitely not! There were also company lunches (and dinners – see appetizer tower below!) and even a pedi-cab ride through downtown Indianapolis. The whole company had a great time in Indy, and we are all looking forward to the 2014 NAA Conference and Show in Louisville, KY next year!
