Up until 13th February, The Prince’s Trust is holding their Invest in Futures preview auction on our platform. Invest in Futures is a campaign raising awareness in the financial services industry of the difficulties faced by young people today. The funds raised by the campaign in previous years have helped huge numbers of young people into work, education or training.
The Invest in Futures 2013 gala dinner will be held on Thursday 14th February, with the online preview auction coming to an end at midday on 13th February. This preview auction gives supporters of the initiative an opportunity to “pre-bid” on lots before the live event takes place. The highest bids in the online auction will be brought forward to the live event.
For this auction, we are working with IML who will be providing the auction technology for the live event. This means we will be collaborating with them to transfer the online bidding data to the handsets used on the night of the auction.
The site was created using our “rental” product, and is customised to match the Prince’s Trust Invest in Futures colours and branding as well as featuring the event’s sponsor Merrill Lynch.
