Barrett-Jackson’s 2021 Las Vegas Auction will be held inside the new, 1.4 million-square-foot West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), the company announced. The auction is scheduled for June 17-19 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Moving our Las Vegas Auction to the newly expanded LVCC is an exciting new chapter in the history of our company and the collector car hobby,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The extraordinary new West Hall is the perfect venue for our three-day collector car auction. It offers the perfect blend of ample indoor and outdoor space with the latest technology that complements our commitment to the health and safety of our guests.”
“We are pleased to welcome Barrett-Jackson back to Las Vegas and to the LVCC as one of the first shows to take place in our new West Hall expansion,” said Brian Yost, chief operating officer of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “Las Vegas and its resort partners continue to implement stringent health and wellness protocols to keep visitors safe while in the destination and we are eager to welcome our valued customers, exhibitors and attendees.”
The LVCC is committed to providing the highest level of health and safety, LVCVA officials said, and was awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA. The GBAC program was designed to control the risks associated with infectious agents, including the virus responsible for COVID-19. The LVCC was the first facility in Nevada to receive accreditation.
“As the recognized leader in collector car auctions and automotive lifestyle events, Barrett-Jackson is a noteworthy addition to Las Vegas’ 2021 calendar of events,” said Las Vegas Events President Pat Christenson. “After the inability to host the event in 2020, we are especially excited for the relaunch of the event in Las Vegas that features a new date and a new location at the state-of-the-art West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The full Barrett-Jackson experience combined with these new elements will make this a must-see event, now and in the future.”
“We truly missed connecting with our collector car family last year in Las Vegas,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “That’s why we’re so excited to return this year at a new venue that promises to deliver the Barrett-Jackson experience with an unbelievable docket of collector cars.”
