Don’t miss out on the social event of the year – the Professional Driver QSi Awards

We’ve booked the room, chosen the menu and we’re putting together the table plan for the party of the year. Yes, it’s almost time for the best social event in the private hire and chauffeur industry – the Professional Driver QSi Awards. And there’s still time to make sure you don’t miss out.

The entry deadline for the QSi Awards has been extended to Monday. October 5 – so make sure you give yourself a chance of making the shortlist before our judging panel gets down to making the final selections next month.

QSI trophy 03 133The Professional Driver QSi Awards are designed to recognise chauffeur and private hire operators that demonstrate excellent standards of Quality, Service and Innovation. Gold, silver and bronze awards will be given to companies or individuals in 12 categories, and the awards are presented at our gala black tie dinner on Thursday, November 19.

We’ll be announcing our Cars of the Year as well on the night, and we’ll be at our usual venue, the Effingham Park Hotel, near Gatwick Airport.

Professional Driver Editor Mark Bursa said: “We’ve had a record number of entries this year and the quality really shows how innovative the industry can be. We’re adding some new features to the awards ceremony this November – and as always, it’s a great party.”

qsi gen 300The QSi Awards night is the only social event where the chauffeur and private hire operators and drivers get to be the guests of honour, and many companies use it to reward their staff by taking a table or two on the night.

Operators may submit their own applications and supporting materials. No nominations are needed, except for the Professional Driver of the Year Award, where the driver must be nominated by his or her employer.

Bookings are now being taken for this year’s event and full details can be found via or by contacting Stephanie Wooden on 01959 547000.
