Digital Broadcast

A symbol of achievement within the industry


From its inauguration in 2016, the Car Finance Awards has grown to become the only awards programme to connect dealers, lenders and brokers to celebrate and reward success across the industry.


A digital broadcast event

In a year in which the pandemic has become a catalyst for innovation, agility and transformation, the Car Finance Awards will reflect the times in 2020 by becoming a fully digital, broadcast event taking place during Lending Week and a part of the Credit Festival. Find out more here.




Following Credit Strategy’s acclaimed Car Finance Conference, this Awards programme presents the opportunity for dealers, lenders and brokers to get together and celebrate a year of hard work.
