Make NAAA’s Auction Awesome Again!

We’re still several months away from the 2020 Ag Aviation Expo in Savannah, Dec. 7‒10, but it’s not too early to donate an item for the Live and Silent Auction. Help us make this year’s auction an unmitigated success and use it as a way to spotlight your company to the aerial application industry! Companies that donate to the NAAA auctions have an opportunity to get their company name, brand and positive image in front of 1,600 attendees! The Live and Silent Auctions support NAAA programs and services to aerial applicators. The earlier you inform us of your auction donation, the more advertising you’ll receive on the NAAA website and in NAAA publications. Support the aerial application industry by donating an auction item!

A few final determinations are made onsite once all the offerings have been inventoried. Please include the value of your item.
