The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Auction at World of Concrete is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 19, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. There are more than 150 individual items in this year’s auction categories that include ready-mixed concrete-focused items, contractor-focused Items, and other industry-related items. For those looking for bucket-list adventures and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, the auction also includes great trips, game tickets, and tech products that anyone would want.
You can view the full list of items here.
The donated items are split into two auction categories: About 100 items will be offered in the live auction conducted by Ritchie Bros. The live auction begins at 1 p.m. PST on Jan. 19; the remaining items are offered for bids in an online silent auction hosted on the Giftsmart platform. Silent Auction bidding opened on January 12 and ends on January 19 at 12:45 p.m., just prior to the start of the live auction. The Auction Committee invites you to join them in a live event for the silent auction during its last two hours of accepting bids in the West Hall, Room W103 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"The auction proceeds benefit the CIM National Steering Committee (NSC) and support the current CIM programs at Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Texas State University, California State University – Chico, South Dakota State University, and the Executive MBA program," said Ben Robuck, Chairman of the CIM Auction Committee.
