bodyshop Awards 2017



Building on the success of last year’s Twickenham extravaganza, this year’s bodyshop Awards will be bigger and better than ever before. Remaining the ONLY independent accolades dedicated to our industry – with a stringent process to ensure best results – the bodyshop Awards are the industry’s most respected and highly sought after prizes.

In 2017 the Awards will be presented after the bodyshop Event – a full day’s exhibition and seminars that our industry so desperately needs. Taking place on 29 September 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, we are delighted to bring the Event back by popular demand. We’ve also revamped the Thursday night welcome, where networking and fun are in huge supply.

Don’t delay – enter today!
