ScotHot –  Scotland’s trade event for the food, drink, hospitality and tourism industries – is returning to Glasgow in collaboration with Scottish Tourism Week.

THE event takes place on 15-16 March 2017 at Glasgow’s SECC and will provide opportunity for businesses to trade and head hunt.

It also offers a platform for chefs to showcase their skills as well as experts to be able to trade knowledge.

Fresh Montgomery managing director Toby Wand said: “ScotHot is a beneficial experience for all. We are delighted that it will once again be the centrepiece of the opening of Scottish Tourism Week and expect to welcome over 100 brand new exhibitors that haven¹t been at the show before.”

Features include Liquid Academy Live that will host a number of inspiring speakers  demonstrating innovation in Scotland’s drinks industry.

The Scottish Culinary Championships is back for its 32nd year, highlighting the skills of Scotland¹s next generation of top chefs. Scottish Chef of the Year and Scottish Junior Chef of the Year are just two of the accolades that will be awarded.

The Spotlight Stage will feature expert speakers from hospitality and tourism businesses, who will share their experiences and insight on some of the hot topics of the moment.

Scottish Tourism Alliance chief executive Marc Crothall said: ³We 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.

“This important trade show, one of five STW Signature events, is the perfect complement to our own National Tourism Conference.

“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.”

ScotHot brings together suppliers of food and drink; catering equipment; décor and design; tableware and technology products with chefs and buyers from hotels, restaurants, bars, catering outlets and tourism destinations.
