One week left to enter the Business Car Awards
23 July 2021
Author: Simon Harris
Fleet manager, suppliers and car manufacturers have just one more week to submit their entries for the 2021 Business Car Awards, as the 30 July deadline for entries approaches.
Most of the awards require an application form to be completed, and these can be found on the Business Car Awards website (www.businesscarawards.co.uk).
For those that require an entry form, one must be submitted for you or your organisation to be put forward to judging. There are more awards for manufacturers requiring entry forms this year, and all fleet awards, and almost all supplier awards are based on entries submitted. If we do not receive one for the category you wish to be entered in, you will not be considered.
The Business Car Awards have recognised excellence in the automotive fleet sector for more than a decade. They have identified the best cars that fleets should be running, highlighted innovation and fleet expertise among suppliers, as well as rewarding excellence among fleet operators.
The decisions are made after careful analysis by experienced judging panels comprising independent experts in the automotive and fleet arenas, ensuring entrants are evaluated by professionals with many decades of knowledge and insight between them.
The challenges of dealing with the global pandemic in 2020 and 2021 have affected every aspect of how we engage with our target audiences. Handshakes and business card exchanges have been replaced with virtual networking lounges and instant messaging.
At Business Car and our sister publications, we have led the market in successfully transforming our event calendar into online activities, with impressive engagement numbers, which have outshone our competitors in not only retaining but actually growing our audiences.
Now, as we plan to emerge from a fully virtual world and re-enter physical event activations, we face a challenge on providing a safe environment for us to meet again and our intention to host this event in a hybrid (both physical and virtual synchronised) format.
So, what does this mean for this event? Our team of marketers and specialist event producers have consulted audiences, are working closely with venues and conducting all the risk-assessments required to be able to bring us all together in one room again.
We will soon be announcing the venue for our London-based event, which will include a drinks reception and dinner.
