The industry’s largest vehicle auction provider, National Powersports Auctions, will run a live auction of pre-owned vehicles at this February’s Dealer Expo in Indianapolis.

The exclusive, three-year agreement between NPA and Advanstar Communications, parent of Dealer Expo (and Dealernews), means that a live auction of premium pre-owned powersports vehicles will take center stage at Indy in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

More than 100 vehicles will be auctioned at Dealer Expo 2011, according to Danny Phillips, EVP at Advanstar.

NPA also will host a series of educational seminars for powersports dealers interested in learning more about the auction process. Seminars scheduled for this February include a session on how to make pre-owned sales a strong revenue-generating service for your dealership, and a tutorial on how dealers can most effectively maneuver through the auction process.

The live auction at Dealer Expo also will be simulcast online.
