The 18th annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach is being postponed along with events around the country as the nation combats the spread of the Coronavirus.

In a statement released by Barrett-Jackson:

Following the recommendation of county and state officials in Florida, executives with Barrett-Jackson today announced the company will postpone its 18th Annual Palm Beach Auction, scheduled for April 16-18, 2020, at the South Florida Fairgrounds. The decision was made due to the uncertainty of the current public health crisis and to safeguard auction customers, sponsors and guests from the potential spread of COVID-19.

“While every indication shows that our bidders, consignors and sponsors were behind our efforts to hold our auction, we’ve decided to follow the advice of the Florida governor and exercise an abundance of caution at this time,” said Craig Jackson chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Our decision to postpone the auction was made to protect the public’s safety and health.”


Barrett-Jackson’s No Reserve Palm Beach Auction draws more than 60,000 guests each year, Last year the company celebrated its largest 3-day Palm Beach Auction in its history with a record number of collector vehicles, nearly 1,500 bidders and total auction sales exceeding $31.2 million.

The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction is expected to be rescheduled for October 15-17, 2020. Current ticket holders can have their tickets transferred to the new event dates. Full refunds will be also available. Details will be communicated directly to ticket holders.

“This is truly an unprecedented challenge in our country’s history, and one we take very seriously,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson, said in the statement. “That’s why in the coming weeks, we’ll continue to work closely with local governments and health officials as we plan for future auctions.”

As of now, Barrett-Jackson’s remaining 2020 auctions, including the Northeast Auction at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut from June 24-27 and Las Vegas Auction at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort from September 10-12, are on the books as scheduled.
