Online Bidding

Participate LIVE!

Our new platform is online. From now on you can test the new features and register for the auction.

Note for already existing bidder accounts:

  • We want to make the transition from the old to the new platform as easy as possible for you, so we will take over your data.
  • If you already had a bidder account on "", you can log in on the new platform with your e-mail address. You only need to apply for a new password.
  • If you have already submitted an accreditation request on our old platform, this will of course be taken over and processed. You do not need to submit a new request.

Bidding online live:

Before the auction, log in with your account details at or in the app.

  • Go to the auction overview to access the exhibits.
  • You can place maximum bids in advance. The maximum bid denotes the highest price you are willing to pay. If there are one or more counterbidders, the computer will bid for you until your maximum bid is exhausted. If you are the only bidder on an exhibit, you will win the auction at the starting price.
  • Shortly before the auction, the stream and sound are activated.
  • You can now follow the auction live and place your own bids.
  • Please note: The status "highest bidder" is only valid until the start of the live auction.
  • If you have placed the highest bid and are not outbid during the live auction, you will be awarded the exhibit. Congratulations! We will contact you shortly and send you further information.

Technical tips and tricks

We have listed a few more technical tips and tricks to ensure that nothing gets in the way of your online bidding experience and your success in the auction.

  • Make sure you have a good and stable internet connection (preferably wired).
  • VPN connections and company accesses can delay or prevent the loading of page content or the LIVE stream in certain situations due to their parameterisation.
  • Delayed display? Reload the auction platform, this sometimes works wonders.
  • Play it safe: Log in on a second device (tablet or smartphone) so that you can fall back on it in case of network problems. This should, if possible, be connected through another internet connection (e.g. an LTE/5G connection).
