That’s right, we will be going back to a time of steel, horses and honour when the Knights of Valour take centre stage in the CKNX Event Centre.

One! … Five! … Sold! Catch all that? A battle of the word: combining speed, precision and concentration. Auctioneering is more than just a vocation, auctioneering is an art form. The IPM will be hosting some great auctioneers who will battle for supremacy in the Auctioneers Challenge. We will see – hear? – auctioneers auctioning off a variety of items during the challenge. This will give viewers the opportunity to see just how difficult the world of auctioneering is as well as the vocal precision required to be a successful auctioneer.
