Lookers Volvo Colchester, part of one of the UK’s leading motor companies, has signed up as Headline Sponsor of the Essex Digital Awards for the second year running.

Miles Alvis, Franchise Manager at the showroom, in Cowdray Avenue, Colchester, has described the alliance as “very exciting”.
He added: “We have been involved in the EDAs since the start, firstly as a winner and since last year as Headline Sponsor.
“The Awards is a great event which has grown impressively since it began and we are thrilled to be part of something that is so vibrant and progressive.
“Our brand Volvo invests heavily in using state-of-the-art technology to keep the performance and experience of our cars out in front of the pack and so this scheme matches that objective perfectly.
“I am sure there will be many hundreds of entries, like last year, and we look forward to meeting the many talented finalists at the Presentation Evening.”
