Compass – The Headline Sponsor of the Paint & Panel 2022 Bodyshop Awards

Compass has been a big supporter of the Paint & Panel Bodyshop Industry Awards for nearly ten years.

We were honoured to have taken on the role as the headline sponsor at the 2022 Bodyshop Industry Awards for the third year in a row.

“What a cracker of a night. To think this started off in a pub with an attendance of 50 to now 300 people all dressed to the nines. Can’t wait for next year on the Gold Coast!”

– James Frape, CEO of Compass.

Compass is proud to be a part of such a prestigious event, with the goal of shining the light on individuals within an industry that earns its night out under the stars.

2022 Bodyshop Awards
On Friday 11th November 2022, the Bodyshop Awards night was held in person for the first time since 2019. As the Platinum sponsor, Compass was proud to attend to support all finalists and congratulate the winners from each category. As one of the first in person networking events for the Bodyshop industry since the pandemic everyone was certainly out to enjoy themselves.
The event was a sold-out success with 300 people from the repair industry and suppliers gathering to celebrate a memorable year, which saw business come roaring back and create different challenges from the previous two. The MC had attendees rolling with laughter and certainly warmed the room up.

“Compass has been a major supporter of the Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards since we changed the format back in 2016 and are passionate about showcasing excellence in the industry. Compass are fully invested in making sure their team nominate shops and have supported the growth of the awards program and the development of the awards night itself.” – Sam Street, Paint & Panel.

It was excellent to see participation increase as the awards move from strength to strength – each year the bar is raised by a new wave of hard working, high achieving individuals and their teams. This year was no exception which became clear as the accolades were announced. Starting with individual and best practice awards along with the presentation of the inaugural Paint & Panel Hall of Fame inductee, Robin Taylor from Axalta, and finishing off with the Best Shop Awards.
