Let's Talk - - UPDATE -

The UK’s best coach tour op­er­a­tors were hon­oured at the 2017 Bri­tish Coach Tourism Awards and Suf­folk­based Gal­loway Coach Travel cel­e­brated by win­ning Coach Tourism In­no­va­tion of the Year for its work with Lon­don me­dia agency AKA, launch­ing the School of Rock coach.

The pres­ti­gious awards cer­e­mony took place at the Na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle Mu­seum in Birm­ing­ham.

They brought to­gether more than 350 in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als to recog­nise and cel­e­brate ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion across the multi­bil­lion pound coach tourism sec­tor.

Cel­e­brat­ing its 12th an­niver­sary, the an­nual awards were or­gan­ised by Di­ver­si­fied Com­mu­ni­ca­tions UK, and hosted by Group Tourism & Travel.

The celebrity pre­sen­ter was TV per­son­al­ity and broad­caster Gethin Jones.

Dan Rogers, gen­eral man­ager at Gal­loway said: “It is fan­tas­tic news and a recog­ni­tion of the hard work put in by many of the team at Gal­loway to pro­mote our travel and ticket pack­ages to West End shows.

“We’re al­ways look­ing for new and in­no­va­tive ways to reach out to cus­tomers and the im­pres­sive coach liv­ery has re­ally caught cus­tomer’s imag­i­na­tion.”

He­len Con­way, group direc­tor at Di­ver­si­fied UK, said: “Once again the sheer qual­ity of the awards en­tries has been out­stand­ing and sends a strong sig­nal that the do­mes­tic tourism sec­tor is get­ting stronger ev­ery year and is a real tes­ta­ment to the strength of com­mit­ment of the in­di­vid­u­als work­ing within it.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions go to all our fan­tas­tic win­ners.”
