The What Van? Awards will be held on Wednesday 13th December 2017 at The Brewery, London.

In December 2017, What Van? will once again host its well-established Awards ceremony, where the finalists and outright winners in each category are announced and rewarded with prestigious What Van? Awards trophies and Highly Commended certificates.

With more than a decade of experience organising this successful event, What Van? has carefully selected 19 awards categories, to embrace all aspects of the market. Each year 150-200 guests attend, providing sponsors with a unique opportunity to network, reward and celebrate the best businesses within the light commercial vehicle arena.

This year we are asking our readers to nominate those individuals they consider most deserving of the Fleet Manager of the Year Award as well as requesting nominations for the most outstanding products or innovations in the following categories: Risk Management; Green Fleet; Aftermarket; Innovation; Safety.

We shall also once more be asking you to vote for your preferred Converter of the Year from our shortlist.

All the ‘movers and shakers’ from the LCV market will be present at what is considered a must-attend event within the industry’s year.

The day will commence at 12.30pm with a champagne reception as guests arrive, allowing the Awards sponsors and partners time to network before they are invited to take their seats for the opening address from James Dallas, the Editor of What Van? magazine and website.

Following a three-course lunch, the Awards presentation will start at 2.30pm. The afternoon concludes with a closing speech to thank the sponsors, awards’ entrants and guests.

There will then be a further opportunity to network, giving you even more time to meet new and existing clients in a professional, yet relaxed environment.
