The very best of Scotland’s tourism and events industry will be celebrated as entries and nominations open for the 2022/23 Scottish Thistle Awards.
The awards, which for the first time this year include a media partnership with News Scotland, shine a spotlight on individual businesses and people working in this vital part of the Scottish economy, which is worth £11.5 billion.
The awards champion innovation, collaboration and sustainable practices, in line with the ambitions of the national tourism strategy, Outlook 2030.
Responsible tourism is at the heart of the refreshed Scottish Thistle Awards, supporting the aim for Scotland to be recognised globally as a leader in this field.
The Scottish Thistle Awards is delivered by VisitScotland, in partnership with Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards (HITA) and the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards (ACSTA) and supported by a panel of industry representatives.
Entries can be made to five regional award ceremonies, including the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards and the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards. Regional winners go forward to compete in the national final in February 2023.
