LAS VEGAS — When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down events around the country for several months, a dark pall emerged over the exhibitions and events industry that led to concerns about when, and how, the sector will be able to recover from this unprecedented blow. As face-to-face events have started to resume with modifications to keep stakeholders safe, silver linings have emerged, demonstrating the enduring resilience of the industry. In another sign that the clouds are beginning to lift, the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) recently scheduled its first big event since the crisis began — the Mecum Auction Las Vegas, which will be held on November 12-14.

The Mecum Auction Las Vegas is good news for the events industry and car enthusiasts alike. Organized by the Mecum Auction Company, the event will feature a variety of cars, motorcycles, and Road Art available for sale.
According to the Mecum Auction Las Vegas website, several safety measures will be put in place during the event. As attendees arrive at the LVCC, they will be required to have a touch-free temperature screening and if they have a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees, they will not be able to enter the event. In addition, all attendees, exhibitors, and Mecum Auction staff will be required to wear masks. The Mecum Auction Las Vegas will also arrange seating that allows for social distancing and provide hand sanitizing stations throughout the venue.
To further protect everyone at Mecum Auction Las Vegas, disinfecting and sanitizing services based on GBAC standards will be provided by United National, which is part of TSE’s parent company, United Service Companies.
The Mecum Auction Company hosts monthly auctions that allow car collectors to buy over 20,000 lots annually. The company has specialized in collector cars for over three decades.
