Now introducing the inaugural Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction! This June, you can head to Mohegan Sun for this new and exciting auction – and you can do it all as a VIP. How? I am so glad you asked. It all starts with an Official Barrett-Jackson Experiences Ticket Package. Let’s walk through the experience you can have!
3-Day VIP Auction Ticket
This is pretty self-explanatory, but a Barrett-Jackson VIP ticket package includes a 3-day ticket for the auction. Yes, that means you can experience three days of excitement!
Floor Seating in Auction Arena
The reality is, if you want to sit on the floor at a Barrett-Jackson Auction, you have to be bidder. What’s so great about our package is that you automatically get a reserved seat on the floor. At every auction, our available seats are usually within the first 5 rows, so you are front and center to see the cars cross the block. You also have your name on your reserved seat, so you can get up and move around, bid on a car or visit the hospitality venue without having to worry about someone taking your seat.
VIP Auction Tour
To give you an idea of what to expect on the VIP Auction Tour, we will flashback to the Scottsdale Auction. There, guests were able to view the Salon Collection – which features the most premium and recognizable cars that usually go for the most money.
These breathtaking vehicles are roped off to the general public, but you get to go under the ropes and get up close and personal with the cars. Your guide will tell you all about the cars as onlookers stop, stare and wonder, “How did they get in there?” Talk about some jealous people. This type of experience is not available for just anyone.
You may also get a chance to tour the production trailer. At Scottsdale, the producer came out to give stats on TV viewers and the history behind getting a prime time spot on TV. The history and background are really fascinating!
VIP Auction Block Tour with Photo Opp
The General Manager of Barrett-Jackson gave the tour at Scottsdale, which was incredibly awesome because this is someone who knows anything and everything about Barrett-Jackson. He gave a lot of info – all of which was geared towards both beginners and experts at the auction.
During this tour, you are allowed to go on stage where the cars are auctioned off and then go behind the stage and see the production of it all. It’s really an exclusive opportunity that only VIP guests are allowed to enjoy. You will also have the opportunity to take a group photo in front of the stage.
Complimentary Bidder Badge (With approved application)
The complimentary Bidder Badge is one of the best deals in the package. The fees are waved – which are rather hefty if you purchase individually.
VIP Auction Arena Skybox Hospitality
At Mohegan Sun, the VIP hospitality is located in the Muscle Lounge, which is located behind the seating arena. The venue is elevated, so you are still able to see the stage and witness the action of the auction. There are also large screens that give an up-close view of the cars crossing the block.
- Premium Food: Say goodbye to the typical fare and hello to premium food. You’ll be able to enjoy a nice buffet of decadent dishes that will keep your stomach satisfied throughout the day.
- Open Bar: Top Shelf Open Bar always has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Sure, there are other areas at the auction where you can get a drink, but it comes with a price and requires patience. While everyone else is waiting in 15-20 minute lines to get a drink, you’ll be able to walk right up to the bar located in our hospitality venue.
Credential and Souvenir Lanyard
The lanyard makes carrying around your credentials a breeze. You don’t have to dig through your pockets or your purse – everything you need is around your neck!
We could give you a hat or a t-shirt, but we’d rather you have your pick! You will receive a merchandise card that you can use towards your purchase at the Barrett-Jackson gift shop.
