The judging was undertaken by an independent panel of nine ‘highly experienced’ people with ‘intimate knowledge’ of coach operations, marketing and tourism. The winners will be announced at the Annual Presentation Ceremony on 21 April at the Mercure Piccadilly Hotel in Manchester, which will be compered by TV presenter, Carol Kirkwood.
UK Coach Awards Chairman, Allan Edmondson, said, ‘Our awards are designed to seek out excellence and good practice at all levels in the industry, in all types of work, and amongst all operators from the very small to the large corporate organisations. I am delighted that we have succeeded once more, and that all sizes of company are represented in this year’s list of finalists. When deciding on the winners, it’s what you do and how you do it that matters, not how big or small you are. We’re most grateful to the judging panel: there was a lot of work involved and some really difficult decisions to make in what was a very strong field.’
