The winner of each category will be announced at the PPMA Group Industry Awards ceremony and gala dinner, which takes place at Birmingham’s National Motorcycle Museum on Tuesday 26th September – the first day of the unmissable industry event the PPMA Show.

CEO of PPMA Group Andrew Mint commented: “Thanks to an incredibly high standard of entries this year, the judges reported a difficult deliberation process, which is testament to the innovatory nature of our industry. No doubt they’ve got an even harder task ahead with choosing a winner, and we look forward to celebrating the achievements of both the finalists and winners at the ceremony.”
