A celebration of excellence and achievement, 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 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 at an iconic London venue on 17 September.

The world famous location we have selected will be revealed very soon.

Re-setting the competition
The competition itself has been re-set and entry deadline for extended to 21 May, which will give organisations more time to refine their submissions. Entries that have already been sent can be revised, updated and resubmitted. The extension will allow the jury to conduct site visits, currently impossible due to travel restrictions, during July and August.

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 venue we have selected has the flexibility to host drinks receptions, banqueting and a live show in a mixed indoor-outdoor context. The final format of the ceremony will, inevitably, be informed by government guidelines on hospitality and social gatherings.

Booking a place
While the venue 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.

Recognising those who have made a difference
Being the 20th anniversary awards, the 2021 ceremony was always going to be a special event, but a social gathering will now have an added poignancy for everyone in parking if it marks the restoration of a semblance of normal life.

The 2021 awards will, in particular, recognise the vital contribution that the traffic and parking sector has made to ensuring that the NHS, education, retail and wider economy have kept functioning throughout the pandemic.

Your stories are important, your achievements amazing and all deserve to heard, shared and honoured.
