The GTMC has announced Railguard as the winner of its newly launched award for innovation at its Overseas Conference in Ireland.

Voted for by delegates at the conference, Railguard will benefit from access to the GTMC Partnership programme for 12 months, offering the team exposure to, and support from, the GTMC’s broad range of TMC Members and Industry Partners including easyJet and AccorHotels. The prize also includes a workshop with Travelport’s chief storyteller Jason Nash to offer guidance on developing their own brand story, and a mentoring day with the Founders Factory team of experts.

The GTMC’s Entrepreneurs In Business Travel Awards saw five innovative start-up companies battle it out on stage at the conference which took place from 10-12 June 2018.

This year’s conference was held at the historic Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa in Wicklow, Ireland, which included sessions addressing post-Brexit hot topics including the political landscape and the state of the economy, as well as the changing MICE market and more.

Adrian Parkes, CEO, GTMC comments: “Congratulations to Railguard for winning this year’s Entrepreneurs In Business Travel Awards at the 2018 GTMC Overseas Conference. We developed the awards to recognise talent as we can see an incredible level of innovation within the sector. We feel it’s very important to support entrepreneurialism in our industry and continue to nurture it for the purpose of broadening technology and product development for the business traveller, our partners and GTMC member TMCs.”

Matt Freckelton, company director, Railguard adds: “It is a great honour to be awarded this accolade by the GTMC community. Since launching Railguard the team has worked incredibly hard to ensure we have the right technology in place to deliver an effective solution to the business travel community. This award is a testament to that hard work and we look forward to working closely with the GTMC and its members and partners in the future to build our offer even further.”
