Vendor Testimonials

"As an Automotive Artist, I've been an exhibitor at the Barrett-Jackson auctions for ten years. The style of venue that Barrett-Jackson provides has been a tremendous asset in the growth of my Automotive Art business. With a variety of upscale vendors, the auctions draw a quality of customer I don't find at other events. Most are prepared to spend on cars as well as related items. Their Scottsdale auction is the most exciting and diverse event in the world, and the auction in West Palm Beach continues to grow in that direction each year. Because of my previous success at their events, I've already committed to exhibit at their new Las Vegas venue in October. The vendor staff is very well organized and has worked well with me to ensure a mutual success. Although I've exhibited at many similar events, Barrett-Jackson continues to excite me every time as an automotive enthusiast, collector, and artist."

"Swisstrax has been a Vendor at the Barrett-Jackson auctions for 4 seasons now. I can only say that this is one of the top events for us as an exhibitor. We are active in over 60 events per year all over the world and this event is not only a very profitable event but one of the most enjoyable. The only other event that even ranks at this level is the SEMA in Las Vegas and the Salon Auto in Geneva, Switzerland.

I would also like to say that no other auction that I have attended has the concentration on quality of clientele that Barrett-Jackson has. I make sure I am present at this event every year. The show is easy to access and the move-in and move-out has always been very smooth. Mr. Mike Laurel and his team are nothing less than a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working the new show in Vegas baby!"

"We have been a vendor for over 12 years and have seen our business grow steadily since we have worked Barrett-Jackson. This is the only show that we work because of the time and effort that we put into getting ready for it. The repercussion of this event gives us a good working base for the rest of the year. The popularity of Barrett- Jackson draws hundreds of thousands people to their event.

We feel that the Staff of Barrett-Jackson are very helpful, and professional. They make the moving in and moving out of the event easy. By far this is the best event that we have ever worked."

"I have been doing different versions of trade shows for over 20 years. I just completed my 9th Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale show and I've never been involved in a venue that spends more time and money promoting show to bring in new clientele. The vendor staff has been most accommodating.

The most fascinating thing is the wide range of clientele I built relationships with.....from the person that wants one piece to add to their collection.....to the person that wants me to decorate their whole museum.

I am in a specialized market that's hands on, touchy-feely. This venue enables me to display my goods in front of a potential 250,000 people versus costly advertising that might only bring a handful clientele to my website."

"As we approach our tenth year with Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale and our fifth year in Palm Beach, our business continues to grow beyond our expectations. The clientele attracted by Barrett-Jackson's marketing philosophy and sales strategies continues to support our business with repeated sales and orders. Our product, restored antique gasoline pumps from the 20's to the 60's, is frequently sought by the discerning car collector to enhance his car collection or business.

We are pleased to be associated again this year with the Barrett-Jackson personnel, staff and company."

"I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that our Barrett-Jackson experience of over ten years as a vendor has been phenomenal! The caliber of customers that Barrett-Jackson draws is outstanding, and every year we meet new customers as well as welcome back our previous customers.

Most of our customers come to see the cars, however a great many also come to shop amongst the vendors. This last January our number one customer who buys from us and many other vendors every year told me that he finally bought a car this year.

Thank you for all your help these past ten years. It is always a pleasure to work with you and your staff."

"As a vendor at Barrett-Jackson events in Arizona and Florida for several years, we have been more than impressed with the crowds Barrett-Jackson attracts and the caliber of buyers attending the event. Our sales each time have been far above our expectations and one occasion we sold every item in our booth and generally we sell out 80 to 90%. There are no other show events that can come close to Barrett-Jackson. Their staff is very knowledgeable and professional and they go the extra mile to help vendors attain success. Barrett-Jackson is truly "the greatest show event"!

    - Jim Brinkman, The Brinkman Collection


"We have attended the Barrett-Jackson show for 6 years straight. The show and staff are very well organized. We have met a lot of interesting people involved in the motorsports industry. This is by far the best show we attend all year long. The awareness of Pit Pal Product's brand throughout Barrett-Jackson is unbelievable.

Thank you for providing us a great place to showcase our products."
