UK Coach Awards 2015 open
Nominations for the seventh annual UK Coach Awards can now be made. For 2015, the awards are maintaining their strong emphasis on getting nominations from the customers, particularly group organisers and tour operators who actually use coaches and know the operators and drivers who serve them best. However, the operating categories are once again open to self-nomination. Entries can be submitted until 5 December.
UKCA Chairman, Allan Edmondson, said, ‘The UK Coach Awards is the only national awards scheme dedicated solely to coach operators and their staff in all types of work. As with our hugely successful contest in 2014, our award categories reflect the diverse skills required to deliver high quality coach operations, not only through high-spec coaches and nice liveries, but also through excellent customer service. The right people really do make a difference and we are highlighting this again in our 2015 competition. The categories are designed to cover as broad a spread of activities as possible, and to offer everybody involved both recognition for their efforts and inspiration for the future. We’re therefore offering prizes for excellence in coach operation – with a special new contest for Express services – and for a wide cross section of our people, including drivers, engineers, young professionals, customer facing staff and support personnel. Meanwhile a range of technical and professional awards aims to recognise and reward the skills needed to deliver a successful and growing business.’
