Following 16 consecutive years in north Scottsdale Russo and Steele is moving to a new home: Salt River Fields at Talking Stick.

The annual event will take place from Jan. 18 to Jan. 22 and will feature the “auction in the round” formula with five days and over 800 cars crossing the block.

Home to many internationally recognized professional sporting events, as well as a national mainstay for a wide variety of festivals and entertainment, the 140-acre site will serve as the ultimate host to this highly anticipated annual collector automobile lifestyle event, according to a press release.

“The move to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick represents a major milestone for Russo and Steele,” says auction President and CEO Drew Alcazar in a prepared statement.

“The incredible amenities and the enhanced ambiance provided by Salt River Fields at Talking Stick will certainly add an additional level of excitement and sophistication that Russo and Steele has worked many years to achieve. This long term, multi-year agreement enables Russo and Steele to provide clients and guests alike with an environment that will propel our team into the next evolutionary phase. On behalf of Russo and Steele, we thank the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and the family at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick for extending us this opportunity. January of 2017 will prove to be a renaissance in our history and our entire organization is enthusiastic!”

The site’s manicured fields will provide a concourse style experience that will showcase the high quality, incredibly diverse range of offerings that Russo and Steele has forged its reputation on, the release states.
