The Evening

eBay Motors DinnerThe event started with a drinks reception accompanied by live music. After the first three winners had been announced, a formal three-course dinner was served, following which three more awards were presented to the most deserving nominees. Once the formal part of the evening had been concluded and the winners had been congratulated, all guests had a chance to interact in a less formal environment at an after party overlooking the lights of Canary Wharf.

Andrew Rowson, Towequipe director told us “It was an honour for Towequipe to win the award which marks a very important milestone for the company and further reinforces our position as one of the most trusted suppliers of automotive accessories in the UK. We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with eBay towards achieving new goals, and hopefully will all meet again at eBay Motors Awards 2014 next summer”.
