New coach event planned for 2013

ORGANISERS of two of the coach industry’s premier events have announced plans to join together to produce a single event for 2013.

The UK Coach Rally and the UK Coach Awards will combine to form the UK Coach Rally Awards (UKCRA), with the rally and award ceremony moving to a new, yet to be announced venue, delivering a new and compelling date in the industry calendar.

It will be designed to promote coaches and coaching to the wider public and to get each new holiday season off in style, offering trade and vehicle displays, a great social event and a celebration of all that’s best in the industry alongside opportunities for networking.

As with the original events, UKCRA will aim to recognise and encourage excellence and good practice amongst coach operators, their staff and their suppliers, and encourage destinations, services and attractions to be as welcoming as possible to coaches, their drivers and their passengers.

The inaugural event will take place shortly after Easter 2013, and full details will be announced soon.
