We design and build our own software

Auction Conductor is just a small part of the Conductor software suite — our 4th generation of homegrown auction technology. With industry experience since 1989, and having helped thousands of clients raise millions of dollars, AES knows the right (and wrong) ways to raise money through auction technology. With the conductor series, we kept the good and scrapped the bad. We listened to our event professionals and clients who use the software every day and regularly incorporate their suggestions for improvements. The result: the easiest-to-use interface in the industry.


Auction Conductor

Auction Conductor is the tool we built to help our clients manage their events. You’ll use this to upload auction items, plan your table seating, run post-event reports and payment processing, and configure other software settings for your event.


Event Conductor

Event Conductor is our mobile bidding application for event attendees. Your guests and offsite bidders will use this to learn more about items for auction, place their bids, and buy any multi-sale packages you may have designated.


Event Manager

Event Manager is the tool our staff and clients use on event day to manage guest check-in, check-out, and bid maintenance for both mobile bidding and paper events.


Ticketing Websites

Ticketing Websites give you the ability to publish your very own custom branded website specific to your event or campaign.  Sell admision tickets, sponsorships, merchandise, and collect donations, and more.

“When I refer AES, I say, ‘We use an amazing auction company called Auction Event Solutions (AES). We have used them for years and are so pleased with the level of customer service that they provide not only to our guests, but to us. They go above and beyond to understand the needs of the organization and auction to help determine what will work best. The best part about them is that they are like family and truly invested in the nonprofit world. I highly recommend them! You won’t be sorry.’”
