Ritchie Bros.

Bidders can participate in the auction in-person, online in real time at or by proxy.

"Conducting auctions in conjunction with trade shows provides great convenience for our customersâ"they can participate and network at the Sunbelt Ag Expo and then stay for our auction and purchase all the equipment they need in a single trip," said Darrin Hogeboom, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. "It also gets more eyes on the equipment of our sellersâ"earlier this year we held a Tipton, CA auction in conjunction with the World Ag Expo and it attracted more bidders than the site had ever seen, which resulted in record gross auction proceeds for the site."

The Sunbelt Ag Expo will take place on October 16 - 18, 2012 and annually attracts close to 100,000 visitors. Ritchie Bros. will be participating in the Expo (Booth #189 & 190, Section B-4) and conducting its unreserved auction the day after the Expo on Friday, October 19, starting at 9 a.m.

"We are excited to have Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers as an exhibitor at the 2012 Sunbelt Ag Expoâ"their experience and knowledge of the agricultural industry makes them a true asset to our event," said Chip Blalock, Executive Director of the Sunbelt Ag Expo. "Over our three day eventâ"from October 16 through 18â"visitors of the Sunbelt Ag Expo will explore new product lines and capitalize on educational opportunities from university and college research specialists. Then, to cap the week off, attendees can head over to Ritchie Bros. on October 19 and participate in their unreserved auction. We hope it will prove to be a very informative and successful week for the North American agricultural industry."
