BE2015 pictures now online

Pictures from the bodyshop Event & Awards 2015 can now be viewed online: www.facebook.com/BodyshopMagazine.

Returning to our spiritual home of the Celtic Manor Resort, the bodyshop Event & Awards 2015 (#BE2015) proved, yet again, to be a priceless feature on the annual accident repair industry’s calendar.

The pictures include action from the Enterprise Rent-A-Car hosted golf tournament that took place during the day on Thursday, to the idyllic and relaxed official welcome party Thursday evening, Friday’s highly interactive exhibition, thought provoking seminar programme and, of course, highly celebrated and prestigious awards ceremony.

BE2015 offered something for everyone and crucially, the event helped raise over £4,700 for the motor industry’s own charity – BEN.

As always, a huge show of gratitude must go to all of our partners who make the whole occasion possible. This year, leading the way were headline sponsors AkzoNobel and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, who helped take the whole two-day programme to another level. These two organisations headed-up a long list of partners to whom we are extremely thankful: Audatex, AutoFlow, Axalta, BMW, Car-O-Liner, Direct Accident Management, EMACS, Glass’s, Glasurit, IAEA, Indasa, Mirka, NAB, NIBS Group, S&B Automotive Academy, Sikkens Autocoat BT, Thatcham Research, The Trade Parts Specialists, Veetec Motor Group and Vizion.

A huge thank you must also go to all those who took part in our awards programme – from those who nominated and took time to enter the process, to those who assessed the entries and the panel that judged the categories – it is a serious undertaking and one we are very proud to uphold.

And so, with BE2015 still fresh in our minds it seems a little strange looking ahead to the next bodyshop Event & Awards, but with it being our 20th celebration, BE2016 might just be an occasion you want to put in your diary as soon as possible because it’s guaranteed to be big!

See you all next year.
