January 12th kicked off the 43rd Barrett-Jackson event in Scottsdale. Each year Barrett-Jackson welcomes various bidders, consignors, VIPs and celebrities to the world’s greatest collector car auctions. This year the auction is being seen on FOX (Broadcast, Business Network, Sports 1& 2) and the National Geographic Channel.
“This opening gala sets the tone for the week and last night was tremendous. This year’s auction attendees lived it up last night and now we shift to the real excitement, the cars and the auction,” said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson told the press. “Our all-new facility at Westworld is the realization of a dream and a conversation that traces back twenty-five years. Barrett-Jackson looks forward to a long future in our new Scottsdale home.”
