All round back to backs

8 Sep 17

South Australia hosted a spectacular two days of auction heats and finals at the Australasian Auctioneering Championships which culminated last night in the crowning of Queensland’s Justin Nickerson as Australasia’s best auctioneer for the second year in a row.

REISA CEO, Greg Troughton said “Congratulations to Justin and Queensland – in their back to back victories - for their stunning performance in the 2017 Australasian Auctioneering Championships.   Also congratulations to all the finalists this year.  The depth of auctioneering talent on display was exceptional and really demonstrated that we have some of the best auctioneers in the world”

For the second year, the Championships also incorporated the Australasian Auctioneering Schools Championship.

“Well done to Tasmania’s Andre Briffa on his fine win in the Australasian Auctioneering Schools Championship.  Just like Queensland in the Seniors Competition, Tasmania now has back to back wins in the Schools Competition.  Andre did his school Launceston Church Grammar School, his State and Australia proud and we will certainly see him in the senior event in the near future.  Congratulations also to South Australia’s Bailee Ha who received the Trustee’s Encouragement Award”.

“It was also fantastic to see the other students strut their stuff across the stage – and all their schools should be proud of their talented young students”

“I am proud that South Australia put on such a good show.  Just like the 18 competitors, it was simply the best of the best” Mr Troughton said.
