10th Awards Night takes gold!
“The flagship awards for the Scottish hotel industry” - First Minister Alex Salmond
With around 500 guests attending, the awards are established now as ‘the’ big annual occasion for those in the Scottish hospitality industry and our motto is ‘Encouraging, Recognising & Rewarding Excellence'. The 10th Awards Night was held at the Crowne Plaza by the SECC, Glasgow on April 28th 2013.
This year we celebrate a decade of Scotland’s national hotels of the year awards - now a year-round scheme. The awards began back in 2003, with the first Awards Night held in 2004. The ‘Scottish hotel Oscars’ have since become by far the largest in the hotel industry calendar and are extremely thorough. At the event, guests have included the First Minister, Presiding Officers of Parliament, Ambassadors, Tourism Ministers and TV celebrities. This year's event had 'A Night Of Gold' as its theme – and was a night full of style, music, drama and emotion! Scottish Government Minister Humza Yousaf MSP and 'Clyde', the mascot of the XX Commonwealth Games Glasgow 2014, were our guests of honour.
The whole point of this comprehensive awards program is to actively encourage, guide and recognise the highest standards at each individual hotel; then we consider the national, comparative picture to produce results helpful to both those within the industry and also the consumer. We celebrate all this at a showcase event unrivalled in its scale. “I wish The Scottish Hotel Awards every success and congratulate all winners”, said the First Minister.
This regularly-updated official awards website has been online since 2003, receiving 1000s of nominations and comments plus tens of thousands of votes for hotels and hotel people. Led by the same team since the start, today partnered with Scotland Magazine and a sister event of the World Whiskies Awards from Whisky Magazine, our new annual high-volume, widely-distributed Gold Guide to Scotland’s Hotels will be expanded in 2013.
Year round we receive feedback. Nominations run November to mid-April. Thanks for voting!
