Russo and Steele is relocating the site of its annual Scottsdale Auction event, choosing to remain in Scottsdale, Arizona, but moving to a new venue to the east of its previous location. The 11th annual Russo and Steele Scottsdale Auction will be held at the intersection of the Loop 101 Freeway and Hayden Road, in North Scottsdale, scheduled for January 19-23, 2011.
Following last year’s challenges, Russo and Steele, the Arizona State Land Department and the City of Scottsdale worked tirelessly to find a new location to better serve the needs of attendees and clients. The new location offers significant advantages for weather proofing, drainage and the ability for Russo and Steele to install much needed site improvements such as asphalt top surfaces.
The co-owner and CEO of Russo and Steele commented on the new location and its affect to the Scottsdale auction event: “A huge ‘thank you’ goes out to our partners at the State Land Department and the City of Scottsdale Mayor, Council and Staff. Countless hours were invested, looking at every conceivable option to improve and ensure the long standing quality event we have invested so many years to build. Russo and Steele is ready to put the pedal to the metal, as we make the strongest statement in our 11+ year history. Russo and Steele is back; better than ever!”
In addition to the new venue location and asphalt, the 2011 event will feature a new Losberger main auction structure. Manufactured in Germany, this new structure will afford an “all encompassing environment” in which to hold all the event elements including the main auction block, vehicle staging, vendors, sponsors and all the amenities that Russo and Steele is uniquely known for.
Easy freeway access of the North Loop 101 will continue at the new location, with ample parking, valet services and entry off the Hayden Road exit. The multi-year agreement will keep Russo and Steele as a vital part of the Scottsdale Collector Car landscape for many years to come.
