Conference Policies

All attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers, and guests/persons at Conference are required to abide by the Conference Policies. By attending C&S, you agree to follow these policies at Conference and at Conference-related social events.

Name Badge

All conference attendees, exhibitors, volunteers and visitors are always required to wear a current conference name badge provided by the NAA for this specific event to gain access to and/or attend conference events, education classes, seminars, sessions, meetings, networking opportunities, trade show and visiting with attendees. This policy will be strictly enforced.

Code of Conduct

NAA seeks to provide a conference environment in which all participants may learn, network and enjoy the company of colleagues. Some behaviors are, therefore, specifically prohibited.

  • Harassment or intimidation based on race, religion, language, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, appearance, or other group status.
  • Sexual harassment or intimidation, including unwelcome sexual attention, stalking (physical or virtual), or unsolicited physical contact.
  • Yelling at or threatening any participant, including speakers or staff (verbally or physically). NAA does not tolerate harassment in any form, including, but not limited to, talks, parties, Twitter, Facebook, and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the Conference without a refund, at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Videotaping and Photography

By registering and attending Conference and Show, you consent to being videotaped or photographed and understand that these are subject for use in NAA materials. This includes the recording of children under the age of 18.

Private Meeting Room Policy

The National Auctioneers Association does not permit other groups to host similar on-site meetings at the Hilton. The NAA may work with trade show exhibitors, sponsors and/or attendees who have a need for a private meeting room to meet with conference attendees (based on availability).

Unauthorized Recordings

Unauthorized, private recording of NAA conference events is not allowed. Please note: IAC and IJAC contestants may have their individual performances filmed/recorded for their own personal purposes. Recording of the entire competition, or other contestants, without permission is not allowed.
