Have you registered for NACCE 2018 yet? 

If you register by May 31, your name will be entered twice to receive one of five $50 Amazon gift cards. Winners will be announced after the early bird registration ends on August 31.


NACCE has an amazing line-up of keynote speakers this year including Jacques and Kelli Van Gool! They turned a passion for 1980s Rock 'N Bands like KISS and Journey into a thriving memorabilia business where they deal directly with the bands. Research shows that students begin to imagine themselves by hearing from entrepreneurs directly. Learn how you can ignite a culture of innovation on your campuses and classrooms.

Keynote Highlight: Jacques and Kelli van Gool, Co-founders, Backstage Auctions

NACCE Keynote Speaker

Jacques van Gool, co-founder of Backstage Auctions, was just a kid when he first started collecting rock and roll memorabilia. His early fascination with the band KISS, and the band's successful forays into merchandising, offered him the opportunity to appreciate the value, meaning and art of music memorabilia collecting. Having turned his passion for collecting rock and roll memorabilia into a successful online auction house together with wife Kelli, Backstage Auctions exclusively represents some of today's greatest rock and roll artists and groups and is the auction house of choice for a wide variety of musicians, music industry professionals and memorabilia collectors worldwide.
