The Fleet News Awards is going to Ascot! For 2021, we are moving from our usual home at the Grosvenor Hotel in London to host an exciting summer party at Ascot Racecourse where guests can celebrate the winners and network in safe surroundings.
The Fleet News Awards 2020 was the last major industry event before the first Covid lockdown and the 2021 Awards look set to become the first major industry dinner following the third lockdown.
Ascot will provide the perfect setting for a summer celebration and recognition of fleet excellence. In a break with tradition, the dress code will also change from the traditional black tie to casual attire more befitting of a garden party.
The event will be hosted on the Furlong Club Lawn, located in front of the Grandstand, which overlooks the Racetrack. Guests will arrive from midday on July 6, with the afternoon packed with entertainment, the awards presentation, a delicious five-star BBQ menu and a few extra surprises. It will come to a close around 18:30.
The Fleet News Awards 2021 will incorporate the Commercial Fleet Awards for the first time to create an unparalleled jamboree, honouring and recognising excellence across every part of the fleet sector from car to van to truck.
Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News, said: “During the coronavirus pandemic, we had a chance to reflect and review our awards proposition for 2021.
"We considered returning to the Grosvenor, but we believe this summer garden party will be a brilliant alternative, offering guests an afternoon of networking and a chance to meet old friends and make new acquaintances in a relaxed environment.
“For many guests, the Fleet News Awards is their industry highlight of the year and we’re delighted to be able to host the 2021 ceremony live and in person.”
