ABOUT THE BUSINESS CAR AWARDS

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.

Our in-person award ceremony dinner will take place at The Nobu, Portman Square, London on 19th October and will be live-streamed for a hybrid experience for those audience members unable to attend on the day.

 

 

Hybrid

2020 and 2021 have been unprecedented years for the events industry, which has 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 Progressive Media International, we have led the market in successfully transforming our event calendar into online activities, with impressive engagement numbers which out 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 marketeers and specialist event producers have consulted the market, are working closely with venues and conducting all the risk-assessments required to be able to bring us all together in one room again.

What to expect

• A London-based event – at The Nobu Portman Square
• Constant risk-assessment on the status of the pandemic and its effects on events
