TBR GLOBAL

MICE TEAM

OF THE YEAR

TBR Global’s Thomas Tuschek, Head of Global Major

Events, celebrates the company’s People Awards triumph

in-house proprietary system and the

expertise and skill of our strategically placed

project managers. This creates an unrivalled

ability to deliver large-scale complex logistics

projects to a world-class service standard.

After the successful delivery of its first project,

the team has gone on to obtain further

contracts for blue-chip corporations, global

governing bodies and luxury brands, as well

as undertaking a strategic operational programme

for major sporting events in Japan.

What does the team particularly enjoy

about the role they play in the industry?

Although often overlooked, the ground

transportation portion of an event is the

first and last touch point for every guest.

Successful delivery is the backbone to a

seamless project and the team love nothing

more than making that possible.

What do you think of the Awards and of

the winners’ event in particular?

The award ceremony was a great way to

interact with our peers and clients and

celebrate the best in the industry – and our

caricatures are proudly displayed at our

Glasgow headquarters.

of the Year?

service line was only launched in January

2018 and from its inception the

team has worked tirelessly to

deliver outstanding ground

transportation solutions

across the globe for

some of the world’s

most prestigious

brands. To win in such

a competitive category

was amazing.

Why did you enter the

requirements called for the facilitation of

movements for over 3,000 VIP passengers,

over 500 mixed vehicles and a 58 strong

What impact do you think winning will

have on the team and their careers?

Winning the award has solidified what we

already knew about the team. They are a

group of hardworking and ambitious

individuals, who are truly passionate about

the exceptional service they deliver and

the ever changing world of events. The win

has given them more confidence in their

own ability and the industry recognition

they really deserve.

What are some of the biggest challenges

the team are currently facing in their

various roles?

As the team is so strong, there is an

increasing requirement to utilise their

services in key projects across the globe.

For example, at the moment, we have

activations in Tokyo, Seoul, Panama City,

Washington and London. It is a great

problem to have so as the demand grows,

so too will our dynamic team of experts.
