ACVB Online Auction Offers Unique Experiences for Bidders

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - (April 24, 2014) - The Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB) has kicked off its annual online auction, with proceeds benefitting the tourism industry in Albuquerque. Auction bidding is open now through 8 p.m. MDT on Wednesday, May 7.

This year's packages include: travel packages, tours, attraction passes and meals, as well as photography packages and Southwestern jewelry. Additional options for bidders consist of a Breaking Bad package, wedding package, an advertising package valued at over $42,000, a hospitality tent at the Balloon Fiesta, and a trip to the East Coast, featuring overnight stays in both New York City and Washington, D.C.
