Barrett-Jackson has decided against holding its 5th Annual Northeast Auction, scheduled for June 24-27, 2020, at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. The decision was made based on the uncertainty of live events being permitted by local and state officials during the current COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the company’s efforts to protect the health and safety of all auction participants and employees.
“We spent a great deal of time consulting with local public health and government officials,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The team at Mohegan Sun has also been a tremendous resource for us throughout this process. However, it became clear there is simply too much uncertainty about hosting a multi-day live event during this public health crisis. Given the incredible amount of work and time that goes into producing a Barrett-Jackson event, it unfortunately is not feasible for us to move forward in Connecticut.”
Full refunds for ticket holders will be available. Details for refunds will be communicated directly to ticket holders.
“The Barrett-Jackson community is really a big family that unites when times get tough,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “This is certainly one of those times. The decision against holding our Northeast Auction wasn’t made lightly, but I have faith we’ll pull together through this crisis and look forward to a time when we can gather again.”
