The awards are now in their 12th year and they identify, highlight and reward excellence throughout the hospitality industry within the Highlands and Islands. HITA celebrates the best the north of Scotland has to offer in a sector worth more than £4.5 billion to the Scottish economy.
Recognised as one of the premier industry hospitality awards programmes in Scotland there are categories for all manner of businesses whether small or large.
We are delighted to work together with the Scottish Thistle Awards again this year and each category winner, with the exception of our Highland Rising Star and Highland Ambassador categories, will automatically become a finalist at these prestigious awards, held in Glasgow, next year.
If you are involved in our region’s tourism industry then these awards are for you. We feel that achievements, hard work and dedication are worthy of recognition. So get the recognition you deserve and enter now.
Good luck and please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
To hear more about the benefits of sharing in the success of the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards (HITA), join us at University of the Highlands and Islands' Inverness Campus on Thursday, 14th April. The event will offer companies a business-to-business opportunity with HITA winners and sponsors and give an insight into how you can capitalise on participating in the prestigious annual awards scheme.
