SCOTTISH tourism and hospitality trade show ScotHot will return to Glasgow in March.
Organisers claim the 2017 show, which takes place at the SECC on March 15 and 16, will be the biggest yet, with exhibitor numbers up on previous years.
The show will feature the return of the Scottish Culinary Championships, where chefs compete for titles that include Scottish Chef of the Year and Scottish Junior Chef of the Year, and Liquid Academy Live, which will include talks on the Scottish drinks industry.
The show, part of Scottish Tourism Week, will also include the Spotlight Stage, sponsored by the Scottish Tourism Alliance and featuring speakers from hospitality and tourism businesses.
“We are delighted once again to be bringing ScotHot under the umbrella of the national Scottish Tourism Week (STW) programme, co-ordinated by the STA, placing the 2017 spotlight firmly on tourism, food, drink and great hospitality,” said Scottish Tourism Alliance chief executive, Marc Crothall. “This will be a great way to kick off the annual tourism week programme. The food and drink experience is such a fundamental part of our tourism offer and one which thousands of visitors travel to Scotland to enjoy every year.”
