Ritchie Bros. to hold Las Vegas auction during CONEXPO-CON/AGG
Every three years, tens of thousands of contractors from around the world descend upon Las Vegas, for CONEXPO-CON/AGG, making it the perfect time for an equipment auction, according to Ritchie Bros.
On March 12 – 13, 2020—during the week of CONEXPO—Ritchie Bros. will host an unreserved public auction at its site in Las Vegas, approximately 20 minutes from the trade show grounds. Bidders can participate in the Ritchie Bros.' Las Vegas auction without having to miss a minute of CONEXPO. Ritchie Bros.' PriorityBid functionality allows customers to place bids on items online days ahead of the auction, or customers can participate live and real-time right from the trade show floor via Ritchie Bros.' mobile application. Bidders can also participate in person at the auction site or online at rbauction.com.
"CONEXPO-CON/AGG is the perfect time for consignors to take advantage of the massive crowds expected in Las Vegas," says Mike Dastic, regional sales manager, Ritchie Bros. "The marketing campaign for our March 2020 event is expected to reach hundreds of thousands of potential buyers—no other auction company can match our technology, customer database, or marketing expertise. We encourage sellers to contact us today to make sure their equipment gets maximum exposure."
For large consignments, Ritchie Bros. is offering sellers across the United States the option of selling their assets in Las Vegas virtually. Equipment will remain on the consignor's property and be sold by photo at Ritchie Bros.' auction site.
