Mike Brewer chats about Car Dealer Used Car Awards being held digitally for 2020 as physical event postponed

Time 8:45 am, July 10, 2020

The Car Dealer Used Car Awards for 2020 has been postponed – but a digital event will be held this year instead.

Originally scheduled to be held on November 30, the physical event hosted by TV’s Mr Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer has been cancelled.

The venue – The Brewery in central London- has generously allowed the event to be postponed this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

But for those dealers worried they won’t get the chance to showcase their brilliance, they needn’t fear as this year the Used Car Awards will be held digitally instead.

Host Mike Brewer and Car Dealer founder James Baggott will announce the winners in a special video awards ceremony broadcast on the same date.

You can hear all about the plans and why entering yourself for a Car Dealer Used Car Awards is so important.

Nominations for the Used Car Awards are open now and car dealers can put themselves forward in 21 categories.

Car Dealer founder James Baggott said: ‘It’s a huge shame that we can’t hold our Used Car Awards at The Brewery this year but after a long chat with the venue it was deemed sensible to roll it on to next year.

‘Mike and I want to ensure that car dealers still have a reason to celebrate this year, though, and with used cars of vital importance to car dealers up and down the country right now, the Used Car Awards will be more important than ever before.

‘We’ll be hosting the event online in a unique digital format where we’ll reveal the winners. And we look forward to getting everyone back for a good old party next year.’

Host Mike Brewer added: ‘We are gutted we can’t have a party with all our mates from the trade this year, but it makes sense to postpone it.

‘James and I hope that instead you’ll join us for our digital awards instead – grab yourself a cold one in the comfort of your own home and tune in to enjoy the awards as we reveal them live in a special Car Dealer Live video.’

Nominations for the Used Car Awards are open now and will remain open until October 1. The nominations list will be revealed on October 13 after the first round of judging, then after the mystery shopping has been completed,  the shortlist will be revealed on October 27.

The physical Used Car Awards will be back at The Brewery next year on November 29, 2021.
