Thousands attend trade show


MORE than 7000 hospitality industry professionals are said to have visited the ScotHot exhibition at the Glasgow SECC earlier this month.
In addition to exhibitors from across the catering and hospitality industries, the two-day event included the 30th Scottish Culinary Championships, the UK Barista Championships (right) and Liquid Academy Live – a series of interactive seminars organised by Glasgow-based training and events firm LA Group (see page 20).
“I’m absolutely delighted with ScotHot 2015 and would like to thank every visitor, exhibitor, competitor and contributor,” said event director Soraya Gadelrab.
“The event has demonstrated the dynamic nature of Scotland’s catering, hospitality, food and drink industries.”
The event coincided with the Scottish Tourism Week conference and the SLTA AGM, both of which were held in Glasgow’s Crowne Plaza hotel.
