The Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards are back for 2022!
As the sector emerges from the unprecedented turmoil of the pandemic, it is time to celebrate the resilience, innovation and perseverance of our tourism and hospitality businesses.
This year will be even more special with the addition of an exciting new award category: the climate champion award, sponsored by Royal Bank of Scotland ‒ our headline sponsor.
The 15 award categories celebrate and recognise the high standards of excellence that are achieved throughout the industry. Winners go forward to VisitScotland’s national awards: The Thistle Awards. Since 2015, HITA winners have gone on to win multiple awards at a national level.
The Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards bring together industry leaders, sponsors and, most importantly, all of those shortlisted for an award. All will gather at the award-winning Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness for a spectacular evening of celebration and recognition on Friday, November 4, 2022.
It will be a night of fine dining showcasing the best of locally sourced ingredients, there will be speeches from inspiring figures, and entertainment too.
The Awards recognise, celebrate and promote the achievements of the people and businesses across the sector.
For 17 years, a volunteer board from across the industry and the area has delivered this industry-leading awards scheme.
It is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate not only the best of tourism, but also how the industry has adapted and evolved in the face of adversity.
