Time for the trade to shine

THE clocks went forward last weekend and spring is well and truly in the air.

For the team at SLTN that can only mean one thing – our annual search for the cream of the crop in Scotland’s licensed trade gets underway.
And 2013 promises to be a bumper year!
Working with our valued sponsors, we’ve compiled yet another comprehensive awards programme which aims to recognise the very best operators, staff and venues in the increasingly diverse Scottish trade.
The 18th SLTN Awards comprises no fewer than 22 categories – combining plenty of old favourites with a number of exciting new awards, including Unsung Hero, sponsored by Wallaces Express; Managed Outlet of the Year, in association with Superpower Corporation; Nightclub of the Year, sponsored by Red Bull; and Best Outdoor Area, in association with Magners.
Entering the SLTN Awards couldn’t be easier.
In this issue of SLTN you will find a brochure featuring details of each of the categories and how to enter.
You can also access more information on the 2013 SLTN Awards by visiting our website (sltn.tempurl.host) and following the links.
So if you are, or know of, an operator or member of bar staff who really is at the top of their game – or a venue that’s a cut above the rest, we want to hear about it.
It’s time to celebrate all that’s good about Scotland’s licensed trade.
