The new date is just one week later than originally planned – now the collision repair industry's only independent awards programme, which is in its 26th year, will take place on Wednesday, 12 October 2022, instead of 6 October.
"The switch has been made to free up more rooms for our guests because early interest from the UK collision repair community and our event partners suggest we can expect a record turnout this year," said bodyshop magazine editor Simon Wait. "Tickets for the event go on sale in early July.
"Judging for the Awards and 30 Under 30 will take place throughout July, August and early September, and more information on the independent judging panel and the processes involved will be released in the coming months in bodyshop magazine, on bodyshopmag.com and through our social media channels," he added.
This year's bodyshop Awards will also see the return of a day-time Expo, showcasing the products and services of the event's lead partners and sponsors, followed by a gala dinner during which the 30 Under 30 winners and the finalists and winners of the bodyshop Awards 2022 will be honoured.
