As the year draws to a close, the team at AGM have been preparing for a number of events within the auto body industry.
First up was the largest bodyshop awards in the world, the ABP British Bodyshop Awards. Held at the impressive Intercontinental London – The O2, on Monday 11th October. Taking a full complement of staff as reward for their hard work during a very tough 18 months, the night was a fun filled, glitzy affair with lots of networking enjoyed by all.
The next event AGM will be attending are the 14th annual ABP Club Annual Convention during the day and the 13th annual Night of Knight awards ceremony on 9th November, once again held at The Vox at Resorts World, Birmingham. With these awards being solely decided by the ratings provided by UK bodyshops, they have fast become THE most sought after award. Sponsored by huge industry names such as Solera Audatex and OEC, it’s set to be a night to remember.
December sees AGM Services attending the first ever ABP Annual Merry Little Christmas party, held at the Royal Armouries Leeds on the 8th December. With a Red Carpet arrival drinks reception, three course Christmas dinner, a DJ, photo booth, Casino and a Cocktail bar, it looks to be a very popular evening and one that the AGM Operations team is certainly looking forward to.
What, there’s more events in 2021…
AGM Services are also set to attend the Bodyshop Magazine Awards 2021 on 17th December, alongside a host of partners, such as 3M, Enterprise: rent-a-car, and iRG, not to mention many other prestigious names within the industry. The night is set to be a busy one as it’s the first time back at the ICC Wales in Newport since 2019!
With opening drinks sponsored by CAPS and a three-course dinner with wine, kindly sponsored by Car-O-Liner, the night’s itinerary is one to match. Starting with a celebration of Bodyshop’s 30 under 30: rising stars, hosted alongside a drinks and nibbles opening cabaret.
The night then shifts to the main Bodyshop Awards 2021 ceremony; Representing AGM we have Oxford based engineer, Conor Rochford, who won the 30 under 30: rising star award alongside 29 other up and coming names within the industry.
Of Conor’s achievement, Sales Director Wesley Young said “ We noticed his potential very early in his career with AGM and have provided various forms of additional training and at every opportunity he has thrown himself into the course.”
The night doesn’t end there, with full access to a DJ set, and a networking lounge featuring the gin-bar sponsored by Vizion Network. It’s fair to say we are excited for this one!
