New award categories added to the UK Coach Awards 2016 event
Two new categories have been added to the 2016 competition for the UK Coach Awards following stakeholder feedback, say organisers.
Entries are now being considered for ‘Coach Industry Website of the Year’ and ‘Best Coach Industry Brand’.
They were introduced following a UK Coach Awards stakeholder meeting in London in October, attended by representatives from all sides of the industry including operators, sponsors, supporting organisations and industry customers.
Organisers say a range of other changes and improvements will be made following receipt of the feedback.
UKCA Chairman Allan Edmondson said: “We were delighted by the fact that so many people took the time and trouble to join us at the meeting or to provide written feedback and suggestions as to how we should take the scheme forward.
“The suggested new categories came from one of our leading coach operators and were enthusiastically endorsed at the meeting.
“We have therefore lost no time in adding them to the scheme.”
Criteria for the two new awards have been written and approved by UKCA directors and can viewed at the UK Coach Awards website.
Entry forms for the new categories are also available to download.
The closing date for the new awards will be the same as the other categories and must be received by Friday, January 15, 2016.
