Glasgow to host HIT event


HOSPITALITY industry charity HIT Scotland has confirmed its next Emerging Talent Conference will take place in Glasgow.

The event, which will see around 80 scholarships handed out to up-and-coming members of the Scottish hospitality industry – including two (entrepreneurial and revenue) given in association with SLTN – will take place at the Glasgow Science Centre on February 17.
In addition to the scholarships, the event will host a number of seminars from noted speakers, including world champion and Olympic rower Katherine Grainger MBE.
Tickets to the event cost £80, with early bird tickets for £70 available until the end of December.
“In the near future a possible golden period for Scottish hospitality and tourism could be upon us,” said HIT Scotland chief executive David Cochrane.
“If we are to make the most of these opportunities we need to inspire and raise the sights of the whole industry. The emerging talent conference will help us meet this challenge through broadening horizons and finding the leaders of the future.”
The SLTN Entrepreneurial Scholar will spend a week with Jilian MacLean, founder of London pub group Drake & Morgan, while the Revenue scholar will be taken under the wing of Heather Hart at RevExcel, which helps businesses boost revenue.
