New for 2022, in association with the Independent Garage Association (IGA); The British Independent Garage of the Year Awards (BIG Awards). The awards will be hosted on the Friday evening of The British Motor Show (19th August) at Farnborough International Expo Centre and will be an evening dedicated to recognising Britain’s garages and showcasing their outstanding skills, passion and innovation.

The RMI’s Independent Garage Association is the largest and most prominent representative body in the independent garage sector.
The IGA helps independent garages to thrive in all aspects of their business by offering advice, information and services which ensure that the independent service and repair sector can remain efficient and competitive in an increasingly complex business landscape.
All shortlisted garages will receive two complimentary tickets to the awards night on Friday 19 August 2022 at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre. Award winners will receive a trophy and high-profile recognition from the IGA, along with industry-wide press coverage and business opportunities that will attract new customers and the best talent to their business.
The BIG Awards are being held in association with the iconic British Motor Show, and all tickets to the ceremony include 4-day entry to The British Motor Show 2022.
Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive comments: “As the unsung heroes that keep the UK on the move, the independent sector has been overlooked for too long. As the UK’s largest representative trade body for independent garages, the IGA feels that it is time to put this right with awards truly created by the industry, for the industry.
“We consider it a privilege to be supporting the sector by providing a platform for independents to shine, bringing widespread recognition to Britain’s best and brightest independent garages and technicians.”
Allianz are the headline sponsor for the BIG Awards 2022, with additional sponsorship from a whole host of industry suppliers.
