International Conference Auction

    The VRMA International Conference auction supports the association's government relations and advocacy efforts. VRMA has been focused on increased advocacy efforts as part of its strategic plan, to assist members in fighting restrictive regulations. Your support of the auction allows VRMA to invest in more engagement tools and public relations efforts to support to protect the vacation rental management industry.

    The auction uses an online auction system that provides better recognition for donors and makes it easier to bid!  Each item will have its own unique page to display your logo and donation information. Bids will be accepted via your computer, mobile phone, tablet and even through text messaging allowing for increased participation and more visibility for your company. Participants will be able to access the auction platform through the conference mobile app without having to download another program.

    This year, we will also be offering donors special recognition on the VRMA Voice Advocacy site with a link back to your website, as well as your company name listed on a special donor recognition board at the International Conference.
