bodyshop to honour 2020 awards winners virtually

The bodyshop Awards 2020 and 30 under 30: rising stars initiative scheduled to be held on 29 April 2021 at the ICC Wales will now take place as a live virtual broadcast between 15:30 and 17:00 on the same date.

bodyshop editor Simon Wait said: “The bodyshop Awards and 30 under 30: rising stars represent the very best that the collision repair industry has to offer, and we don’t want to wait any longer to recognise the great work of our 2020 finalists and winners, not to mention our hard-working judges.

“Therefore, in light of everything that everyone has been going through this past year and the uncertainty surrounding the staging of live events over the next few months, we will be embracing the magic of digital for the 2020 awards.

“The decision to go virtual is not one we made easily. We will miss coming together to celebrate with our collision repair industry colleagues, but we hope we will be back with the live 2021 bodyshop Awards at the end of the year when it is safe to meet up,” he said.

To be part of the virtual awards ceremony on 29 April, please visit the bodyshop Awards 2020 registration page.

Further information on what to expect from the broadcast will be published soon on the website and in upcoming issues of bodyshop magazine.
