Today is the deadline for entries to this year’s Forecourt Trader of the Year Awards, but don’t despair if you are struggling to make it, because the organisers have given a one-week extension to Friday May 20.

Celebrating its 20th birthday this year, the awards have long been established as the showcase for the petrol retailing industry - recognising and rewarding those businesses at the leading edge of their profession that continue to thrive in an increasingly competitive world.

The awards are a measure of the high operating standards and entrepreneurial skills demonstrated by petrol retailers nationwide, who set the standards to which others aspire. There are 6 regional categories, 11 specialist categories plus Best Motorway Services Outlet to enter.

This year the Awards dinner will be on Thursday 15th September, at London Hilton on Park Lane.
