In a three-day online auction event scheduled for Nov. 17-19, Tiger Group will be selling items from the recently closed Westbury National Show Systems, which was previously one of Canada’s largest full-service live event rental production companies.

Westbury, which operated from an approximately 60,000-square-foot facility in metro Toronto, was placed in receivership on Oct. 9, 2020.

The online auction will offer an inventory of gear valued at more than $15 million, with day one for audio equipment, day two for lighting and video gear, and day three for staging equipment. The offering includes gear from such manufacturers as Adamson, Avid, Ayrton, Black Magic, Christie, Clay Paky, Folsom, Mac, Martin, Shure, Sony, Vari-Lite and Yamaha.

Separately, on Dec. 8, Tiger will be conducting an online auction for the remaining assets of Westbury’s audio-visual integrative division, which specialized in designing and implementing systems integration for enterprise, healthcare, education, government, gaming, sports, entertainment and worship clients across Canada. Assets up for bid will include office furniture and equipment, vehicles, warehouse racking and supplies. Full details will be posted at on Nov. 12.

“The Tiger team is excited to bring to market the assets of one of Canada’s largest AV Rental houses,” Jonathan Holiday, director of business development for Tiger Commercial & Industrial, said. “With Westbury serving premier live events and productions for more than 40 years, an inventory of this magnitude does not become available very often.  The quantity and quality of gear up for bid provides a tremendous opportunity for rental and production companies, houses of worship, universities and other end-users to add to their existing inventory and prepare for 2021 as events start to take place again.”
