Building Strategy & Opportunity for Independent Equipment Dealers

Annual Meeting is the independent dealers’ event that causes good things happen for your business.

Here is the start of new ideas, conversations, and opportunities … things you didn’t know before and can now go do something with.

Here is where you forge relationships and gather intelligence that will help you keep your equipment business running strong in 2024, no matter what in the world happens next. 

Thank you to everyone who donated and participated in our Live Auction!

We are pleased to announce that we tripled last year’s amount raised for The IEDA Foundation! Total proceeds from donated prizes was more than $32,000!


We’re kicking off the Annual Meeting with The 2nd IEDA Members Live & Virtual Heavy Equipment Auction in partnership with Bryan Auction Co. on Friday, Feb. 16, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. 

Remember the good old days how equipment auctions used to be? Well this is it: Our good old-fashioned, in-person, socializing, prize-winning, lunching, laughing, and bidding auction is held under a tent on the outdoor pavilion in front of the Reunion Resort. Everyone is welcome to attend and bid on all equipment and prizes — you do not need to be an IEDA Member to attend the auction.

Proceeds from all auctioned prizes will be given to the IEDA Foundation in support of student technician scholarships and other worthy industry causes. Over $10,000 was raised last year! Please help support this great cause by donating exciting items for attendees to bid on – such as trips and tickets to events or experiences, outdoor sporting or hunting goods, jewelry, wine, electronics, and anything else that attendees will enjoy bidding on. Prize items can be shipped directly to Bryan Auction Co. in advance.

As for equipment, everything is welcome: Tools, attachments, trucks, big & small heavy equipment, and transportation equipment. All items to be sold live virtually (no equipment gets shipped until it is sold). All consigned equipment is contributed by IEDA members only – distinguishing this auction with high ethics and integrity. CLICK HERE TO CONSIGN YOUR EQUIPMENT TODAY.

IEDA MEMBERS! Consign your equipment HERE.

Receive the lowest rate in the industry at 5%. Bryan Auction Co. uses dual platforms for the event: Machinery Trader and Proxibid.

And Bryan Auction Co. will spend over $60,000 in advertising to promote this major IEDA event.

Be sure to arrive in Orlando by Thursday, Feb. 15.
