Scotland's leading trade event for the food, drink, hospitality and tourism industries, returns to Glasgow in collaboration with Scottish Tourism Week on the 15 and 16 March 2017 with exhibitor numbers already up on previous years.
Toby Wand, managing director of show organiser Fresh Montgomery, said: "The industry's appetite for ScotHot continues to grow year on year and offers a place where businesses can trade and head hunt, and a platform for chefs to showcase their skills to the trade. We are delighted that ScotHot will once again be at the hub of ‘Scottish Tourism Week' and expect to welcome over 100 brand new exhibitors that haven't been at the show before."
The show will also encompass the Scottish Culinary Championships, sponsored by Compass Group, now in its 32 year, highlighting the skills of Scotland's next generation of top chefs. With Scottish Chef of the Year and Scottish Junior Chef of the Year just two of the accolades that will be awarded.
The Spotlight Stage, sponsored by Scottish Tourism Alliance (STA), 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.
Marc Crothall, chief executive of STA, added: "We are delighted to 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.
"ScotHot is one of five STW Signature events, and the perfect complement to our own National Tourism Conference.
"Our 2017 partnership with ScotHot will provide the anticipated 8,000 colleagues from industry with a ‘one stop shop' conference and exhibition experience, offering further value for those travelling afar who have come to hear national and international guest speakers, giving them the opportunity to meet suppliers, network and of course take back knowledge and inspiration to their tourism businesses."
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.
