Introducing our first, virtual GACVB FALL FUNDRAISER! - supporting Education Programs and Scholarship Opportunities

GET READY TO BID AND PLAN NOW TO TAKE HOME GREAT MERCHANDISE, MARKETING and CONSULTING DEALS, AND MEMORABLE TRIP PACKAGES!

Opens THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 and Closes Wednesday, September 30, 2020. 

Sponsored by our many generous participating partners

*Donating organizations will be promoted as sponsors of this inaugural online auction! Auction donors will be notified of winners and responsible for mailing prizes. 

GACVB produces Silent Auctions each year at the GACVB Winter Conference, the GACVB fundraising eve event of Explore Georgia's Georgia Tourism Conference, and the Georgia Group Sales Symposium all supporting our mission of education programming as well as opportunities for our professionals to receive scholarship assistance. We are unable to host our annual auction fundraising at industry conferences this year, and we are truly grateful for your support and promotional investment with this first virtual auction. 

This program enables our member tourism professionals to attend educational conferences and seminars to be better prepared to meet the demands of the industry.  We welcome your support of our fundraisers. Please consider donating an item to the auction(s).  Destination experiences/trips, advertising partnerships, and local artwork are all examples of unique items and popular with our attendees.

This fun, new virtual format, which will take the place of our traditional auctions, will help fund tourism education, including scholarships for conferences and STS Marketing College registrations. Although we understand that it may not be possible for you to participate in quite the way you have in the past, this auction will only be successful with your help! Every contribution supports our mission of providing industry education for Georgia's destination marketing organizations and corporate allies. 

 
Our first virtual FALL FUNDRAISER will be held SEPTEMBER 24-30. This year, since we have been unable to come together and network and thanks to our new friend Tony Rissley and Expo Auctions, the auction will be completely online.
