UK Coach Awards Chairman, Allan Edmondson, said, ‘Let’s be in no doubt about it: award schemes might be good fun to win and to attend, but their purpose is much more hard headed than just having a nice time. Just as the Oscars sell cinema seats and DVDs and the Booker Prize sells books, our Awards exist to help sell transport services. Hard-headed business decisions are involved, and if you invest the time in preparing a short-listed or winning entry, you will get a return. Winning or being short-listed for a UK Coach Award can bring your business definite benefits. As I said when we launched this year’s scheme, the Awards are all about highlighting and extolling the skills, commitment and sheer hard work delivered every day by thousands of coach drivers, staff and managers – all devoted to getting people where they want to go, giving them a safe and pleasant journey on the way and a really good time when they get there: we hope everybody will get on board with us.’
