Silent Auction

Participate in RBMA’s Silent Auction and drive traffic to your booth!

Exhibitors are invited to donate an item for the Silent Auction and display the offering in their booths. RBMA will list the item and the participating booth on the mobile app, RBMA website, and in the Exhibitor Guide. Attendees will be encouraged to visit participating vendors and place a bid on a bidding sheet. The minimum bid is $25.

Bidding will close on Saturday, after the last Exhibit Hall hour, and winners will be announced at the 50th Anniversary Gala that evening.

Exhibitors are encouraged to choose an item that will influence their booth traffic. Listed below are some possible items to consider. The minimum value of the item should be $100. 

All proceeds will go to the Bob Luther Emerging Leaders Travel Scholarship program and will enable RBMA to award several scholarships bringing new attendees to the conference.

To participate please check the appropriate box on the booth application and include details on your donation.
