BY MURDO MCGHIE, DIRECTOR, SSE RENEWABLES
As an energy business with firm roots in the Scottish Highlands, SSE has ‘grown up’ hand in hand with the bourgeoning tourism industry in this unique part of the world.
HITA is about recognising excellence and SSE shares its aspiration of promoting the best possible standards across the region.
Like the tourism trade, SSE would be nothing without its people, who live and work in the areas we serve. Our understanding of the Highlands runs deep because our business has been embedded here for a very long time, delivering the first electricity lines to remote communities and harnessing ‘power from the glens’ for over 70 years.
This beautiful part of the world is home to communities who are resourceful and resilient, and we all want to see its economy thrive and its reputation for quality continue to grow.
Towards that end, SSE is supporting HITA as flagship event sponsor for the third year running, in their work to find and publicly salute the companies, events, venues and individuals that have made visitors’ experiences extra-special and memorable.
We wish everyone at HITA and the wider tourism industry another successful and rewarding year and are thrilled to be supporting them in 2015.
