The start point for the best source of fleet information

Save the Date: The BusinessCar Awards are back for 2018

Date: 19 April 2018

Following the success of our first-ever awards evening last year, the BusinessCar Awards will be back on September 13th 2018.

Now spread across 25 categories, the awards recognise the best the industry has to offer, whether you are a supplier, fleet decision-maker or manufacturer. New awards include Fleet Cost Savings Initiative of the Year and Technology Innovation.

Once again we will announce the shortlists for each award in early August and follow the same in-depth judging process that proved so popular last year. Manufacturer shortlists will be determined solely by whole-life costs, with the top five cars put forward to our experienced judging panel.

Meanwhile, Supplier and Fleet awards will be open for submissions in early May, with entries judged by an expert panel later in the summer. Finally, voting for the headline reader-voted awards - Manufacturer of the Year and New Company Car of the Year - will take place in August. 

"After the success of last year's event, we're ready to do it all over again in 2018," says BusinessCar editor Debbie Wood. "We've listened to feedback and hope to make this year's event even better. Some excellent work goes on in fleet and it's really exciting that we get to reward some of the best the industry has to offer." 

The full list of categories is below. Details of how to enter and the night itself will be announced at the beginning of May.
