It’s an unforgettable homecoming. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the most exciting collector car auction in the world, Russo and Steele Collector Automobile Auctions, returns home to Scottsdale at the epicenter of Arizona Car Week. Located just south of the North 101 Freeway and Scottsdale Road, the site will offer an array of dramatic improvements, including; high profile visibility, easy access with ample parking, significantly larger display area and improved weather contingency, all strategically located in the northeast sector of the Valley of the Sun.
“We are at the picture-perfect location for everything that has to do with Arizona Car Week,” said Drew Alcazar, auction president and CEO. “Our team has put together an incredible layout that gives sellers and buyers the best platform to experience an unforgettable year.”
The location also continues a long standing partnership between Russo and Steele, the City of Scottsdale and the Arizona State Land Department.
“Our partnerships are important to us,” said Alcazar. “We are local and family-owned. Arizona is where Josephine and I have raised our family. Coming home to Scottsdale for our 20th Anniversary just feels right.”
Running January 15 through 19, 2020, the dramatically larger site offers unsurpassed visibility from the main freeway servicing all of north Scottsdale. The 20+ acre site just off the south side of the Loop 101 Freeway, will create the world’s largest “billboard” featuring the equivalent of five football fields of tents visible to hundreds of thousands of motorists for the month leading up to the event. Further enhanced with easy access off the Scottsdale Road exit, acres of contiguous and close proximity parking will greet attendees along with valet parking directly at the main entrance. In addition, the centralized location in north Scottsdale assures easy access between all Arizona Car week events.
“I’ve never been more excited to have that microphone in my hand and feel the crowd’s energy from our unique ‘Auction In The Round’ format,” Alcazar said. “This will be our chance to say ‘thank you’ to the many close friends, clients, sponsors and vendors who have been rabidly loyal to Russo and Steele for two decades. We have been fortunate to enjoy an exciting journey these last 20 years, and we cannot be more enthusiastic to celebrate our important milestone this coming January in Scottsdale!”
