Auctions International is an award-winning online auction company that helps companies and individuals sell surplus assets. Founded in 2002 by Russ Scherrer, the company’s mission is to help businesses and individuals get rid of unwanted or unusable assets. Originally, Scherrer hosted live auction sales at municipal facilities in the Northeast, but soon realized that online auctions would reach a much larger audience, create the ultimate competitive bidding environment, and reduce expenses for both buyers and sellers.
To help this cause, the AEA holds a Silent Auction on the Friday night of the conference. During this event, attendees are invited to bid on items for auction and receive free finger foods. The proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the AEA’s International Travel Awards, which support presenters from developing countries. This is an excellent opportunity for evaluators to meet and network with colleagues from around the world.
