2015 British Bodyshop Awards - early bird bookings now open!

Recognising and Rewarding Excellence

Following the tremendous success of the previous British Bodyshop Awards (BBA) in previous years, ABP Club is delighted to officially launch the 2015 industry driven awards ceremony, once again to be held at the prestigious venue of the Battersea Evolution, London on Tuesday 12th May 2015.

The black tie event, which is strongly supported by PPG industries as the Headline Partner for the fourth consecutive year, will once again see insurers, accident managers, vehicle manufacturers and independent networks presenting their award/s to the best performing bodyshops or individuals, as they have done in the previous three years.

The presenting companies will deliver their award/s, based on their performance criteria, to a bodyshop or individual of their choice for example 'Bodyshop of the Year', 'Most improved Bodyshop of the Year', 'Outstanding Customer Service', 'Bodyshop Manager of the Year', 'Vehicle Damage Assessor of the Year' and so on - in essence, any star performer - it's the choice of the awarding company!

We are tremendously excited and equally delighted to have secured - Fiona Bruce - as the awards host for the evening.

Fiona is one of the most experienced, high profile and most popular news presenters currently working in television. An award winning newscaster, she is a regular presenter of both the six and ten o’clock news on BBC One and has been the lead presenter of Antiques Roadshow since 2008.

Fiona's appearance will continue a distinguished line-up of high profile hosts at the British Bodyshop Awards , following Rob Brydon, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan.

The post awards entertainment will be provided by How Sweet It Is who have are currently on a UK concert hall tour. They will perform Motown's Greatest Hits to kick-off the Party in the Park and continuing the evening's celebrations.

The level of support for the British Bodyshop Awards has once again been outstanding from the industry as a whole. Eighteen presenting partner companies have confirmed their attendance, which ensures another night of industry celebration. The 2015 BBA will look to build on the success of previous years and will be bigger and better than ever before, truly bringing the industry together for another unforgettable evening.

Mark Bull, director of ABP Club - who provide the platform for the British Bodyshop Awards - says:

"We couldn't be more excited about delivering the BBA in 2015. After such a tremendous night that our industry enjoyed at Battersea last year, we look forward to welcoming our partners; the major motor 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 83 bodyshops, or their employees, recognised in front of their peers - and in front of the industry as a whole, in the first three years. 2015 will see more bodyshops get rewarded for their excellence whether that be a high standard of work or recognition for outstanding customer service.

"The response continues to be absolutely brilliant and with Fiona joining us as our host for the evening, we anticipate an even bigger and better British Bodyshop Awards this year."

Gethyn Davies, Market Director UK & Ireland Refinish, PPG Industries (UK) adds:
