The grading of the many skins has been underway for some time now and the busy employees in Kopenhagen Fur's grading facilities are working hard to prepare the skins for the June auction.
- We are all very excited about presenting this record offering to our customers. Our auction house has worked steadily over a long period of time to provide our customers with the finest grading process in the world and large offerings because this provides the best platform for our customers.
- Our large offering in June provides our customers with the possibility of setting the market price, thereby ensuring confidence in the world market, says Jesper Lauge Christensen.
In this day and age, digital solutions can definitely benefit our customers. This definitely the case for our many customers in Asia, who choose to purchase their goods via our live streaming venues in for instance Beijing, Yu Yao or TongErPu.
However, Kopenhagen Fur's live streaming auction is also available at sites hosted by external players insites such as Zhe Jiang, Liao Niong, He Bei and Guang Dong. The reason for the streaming success is that it is convenient for some customers. They simply view the auction room online, with a live price feed displaying the auction's hammer prices and then they call in their bid to their preferred broker.
Of course, Kopenhagen Fur's Beijing Office stands ready to assist any buyer who has questions concerning the live streaming of the auction.
The June auction takes place from 22 June to 1 July, with the inspection beginning on 15 June. 8.5 million mink skins will be offered with a selection of approx. 20 types.
