Since 1987 bodyshop has been at the heart of building, informing and supporting the UK auto collision repair industry community. When IBIS Worldwide was then launched in 2001, it became the leading global conference and networking provider for collision industry leaders and influencers.

As our global community continues to face difficult and worrying times with the spread of Covid-19, I wanted to let you know personally that all the team here at Plenham, which runs both bodyshop and IBIS, are continuing to maintain the service we’ve always given you.

bodyshop will continue to be produced every month. You can read it online at and stay up-to-the-minute on our Twitter and LinkedIn feeds. We’ll have all the usual articles, ads and – very importantly – news, tips and features to help you navigate the choppy waters of the next few weeks and months.

IBIS face-to-face events meanwhile will be back with a vengeance as soon as possible. To keep all our delegates, suppliers and staff safe, we took the sensible step to postpone our spring and summer programme. Keep yourself up to speed as new dates are published on and on our Twitter and LinkedIn feeds.

Finally, I’d like to thank you for continuing to be part of the bodyshop and IBIS family and extend to you, your colleagues and family our very best wishes.

Stay safe.

Jason Moseley
CEO, Plenham Ltd (operating as bodyshop and IBIS)
