Ritchie Bros. to hold Auction During ConExpo-Con/Agg

Jan. 29, 2020 - Every three years, tens of thousands of contractors from around the world descend upon Las Vegas for the huge ConExpo-Con/Agg trade show.

That makes it the perfect time for an equipment auction. March 12-13 — during the week of ConExpo — Ritchie Bros. will sell thousands of items through an unreserved public auction at its site in Las Vegas, about 20 minutes from the trade show grounds.

Ritchie Bros. is now accepting consignments for the auction.

Thanks to recent innovations by the company, bidders will be able to participate in the auction without missing a minute of ConExpo. Ritchie Bros.' PriorityBid function allows customers to place bids on items online days ahead of the auction. They can also participate live and real-time right from the tradeshow floor via Ritchie Bros.' mobile app. Bidders can also participate in person at the auction site or online at

"ConExpo is the perfect time for consignors to take advantage of the massive crowds expected in Las Vegas," said 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.”

Dastic encourages sellers to contact Ritchie Bros. 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.

More than 100 companies have already consigned equipment to the March Las Vegas auction, including companies from overseas.
