Welcome to routeone Awards 2017

The routeone Awards 2017 gala presentation evening is on 4 October in the Monarch Suite at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel adjacent to the NEC. Timed to coincide with this year’s PSV industry show – Coach & Bus UK at the NEC 4-5 October – the Awards is the perfect high-profile and proven event for the industry to celebrate achievements and excellence.

It will again be a spectacular celebration that will live up to the enviable reputation the event has earned over the past 12 years as simply the best of its kind. It’s no wonder that each year the routeone Awards has been a sell-out event weeks before, filling to capacity the Hilton Birmingham Metropole’s largest function room. This year promises to be no exception.

Making its debut in 2005 and now in its 13th year, the routeone Awards is firmly established as the number one event in the coach and bus industry calendar.


For an operator, there are three steps to winning. First the industry must nominate you. Second you must be shortlisted by the judges. Third you must convince the judges that you are the best.

As an individual manager or engineer there are also three steps, and three possible routes to nomination. In addition to being recommended by the supply side of the industry, you can be brought to the attention of the judges by a nomination endorsed by your managing director or business proprietor. There’s also the prospect or your name emerging through your company’s submission for one of the ‘operator’ awards.
