Now in it's 6th year, the British Bodyshop Awards celebrates excellence within the industry and has quickly become established as the biggest and best awards ceremony within the accident repair industry.
Mark Bull, Managing Director of ABP Club - who provide the platform for the British Bodyshop Awards - says:
“We are delighted to return to announce the 2017 date and to be returning to the prestigious venue, Battersea Evolution. We look forward once again in teaming-up with major insurers, accident & claims management companies, vehicle manufacturers and independent bodyshop networks to recognise and award their highest performers.”
“The fantastic success of the now established British Bodyshop Awards has seen over 100 bodyshops, or their employees, recognised in front of their peers - and in front of the industry as a whole, in the first four years - 2017 will see even more bodyshops get rewarded for their high standard of work and customer service.”
