The British Parking Awards, organised by Parking Review, are presented to the leading examples of parking management, technological innovation, car park design, teamwork and individual achievements.

Delivering a safe awards event

The British Parking Awards ceremony is the social highlight of the sector’s calendar. For many people in the parking sector, the last social event they attended was the British Parking Awards back in March 2020. After a year of online video conferences, many parking professionals have expressed their hope to us that this year’s awards ceremony will be staged as an ‘in-person’ event.

Parking Review and Landor LINKS are thus pleased to announce that the winners of the 2021 competition will be revealed on 24 September at the event's traditional home, the 4-star Royal Lancaster London.

Being the 20th anniversary of the awards, the 2021 ceremony was always going to be a special event, but this gathering of the sector will now have an added poignancy for everyone in parking as it will mark the restoration of a semblance of normal life.

Re-setting the competition
The competition itself has been re-set and the entry deadline extended to 21 June, which will give entrants more time to refine their submissions. Entries that have already been sent can be revised, updated and resubmitted.

See the official British Parking Awards website for further details.

The event
Recognising the desire of our community to celebrate in one another’s company, Landor LINKS’s has worked hard to devise a way for the winners of the British Parking Awards 2021 to be revealed at a live event staged in a safe but enjoyable manner.

The Landor LINKS events team is planning to stage a ceremony that delivers the mix of entertainment and networking that the British Parking Awards are renowned for. The final format of the ceremony will, inevitably, be informed by government guidelines on hospitality and social gatherings.

Booking a place
While the Royal Lancaster London can hold around 650 people in normal times, the exact number of attendees will be influenced by Government regulations, which will become clearer closer to the event. Landor LINKS has thus set up a reservation system that enables people who register their interest in booking places to be added to an official waiting list.

With government restrictions currenty limiting venue capacity, demand for tickets is unprecedented!

We will contact you when the venue confirms how many places we can accommodate, and will send you the details to officially book.
