Tourism and hospitality were united at this year’s ScotHot show, where WBC spent a few days last week exhibiting.
ScotHot is Scotland’s biggest food, drink, hospitality and tourism trade show. Over the two days, key buyers and decision makers from top hospitality and catering establishments networked with a wide variety of suppliers from all areas of the hospitality, tourism and catering industries. From contract catering suppliers to luxury hotel fixtures and small producers – the industry once again showed itself to be bold, dedicated and strong.
This year, ScotHot incorporated the Scottish Culinary Championships sponsored by Compass Group. It showcased the fantastic array of talent across the Scottish foodservice industry, as they battled it out to become Scottish Chef of the year. And along with the Live Theatre, Culinary Arts room and Skills Arena, visitors to the show were kept entertained throughout.
We selected a snapshot of core WBC products from our London showroom and put them on display in Glasgow. We had positive feedback from the industry about a number of our catering solutions: notably our acrylic range of display riser and cake stands, our catering boxes that fit gastronomes and other standard catering equipment, making them more presentable to the public. And of course BRIX our modular display system that is helping contract caterers up and down the country turn their dining rooms into sales magnets.
WBC was also proud to contribute and support to the show this year, by producing the show bag – a classic tote bags that certainly made a splash.
Over the past twenty-five years, WBC has worked closely with the food and beverage industries. We are delighted to see the tourism and hospitality industries growing in all its diverse directions. While this was our first time exhibiting at ScotHot, we are already looking forward to next year’s show!
