Booking open for bodyshop Event 2015

The UK collision repair industry’s greatest gathering is now open for bookings. Taking place on 24 and 25 September 2015 at the Celtic Manor Resort, the bodyshop Event and Awards will once again welcome over 1,000 top industry individuals to celebrate the best the industry has to offer.

This year’s exhibition will incorporate the conference, so the latest information presented by top world class speakers will be in the same room as the exhibition, meaning delegates won’t miss a thing. Interactive exhibitor stands from more than 20 of the industry’s most forward thinking companies will entice, educate and entertain all visitors.

Free places are once again available to the daytime exhibition for bodyshops, vehicle manufacturers, insurers and work providers. All they have to do is confirm their place, either online:, or by emailing Nicola Keady: [email protected].

All other astute individuals are welcome to attend for a special pre-event price of £95 (£150 on the day), to find out more please email: [email protected] or call 01296 642826.

The evening awards remain the industry’s only independent accolades. A Roaring ‘20s-themed luxury gala dinner will be followed by the ceremony where the best and brightest will be recognised in front of their peers.

A swinging 1920s jazz band will keep the guests entertained throughout the evening and into the early hours where dancing and networking go hand-in-hand. The Hot Shoes perform modern hits in a unique 20s style and are sure to have the audience on their feet, strutting their stuff.

The Awards dinner sells out every year, and 2015 is expected to be no different. Individual tickets are £210, with tables of ten just £1,890. To avoid disappointment, secure your place today, email: [email protected] or call 01296 642826.
