Shining a light on 2019/20 winners
Winner of the Working Together for Tourism Award at the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards was Aberdeen International Airport and its Northern Lights Lounge food and drink suppliers.
Since opening in 2017, the Northern Lights Lounge has had more than 250,000 visitors and works in partnership with local suppliers to showcase the best the northeast has to offer.
"We were delighted to be nominated in the Working Together for Tourism award. It was fantastic being recognised at the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards in November.
Our staff and suppliers work extremely hard and we love being able to showcase our amazing region and all the north east has to offer. We are looking forward to the Thistle Awards next month.
Jemma Forrest, Travel Services Manager, Aberdeen International Airport
The last two years have been an incredibly challenging period for tourism and events businesses. Yet there have been some incredible stories of partnership working where the industry has come together to provide support to each other, the local community and visitors alike.
The Working Together for Tourism category celebrates these partnerships, collaborations and team working and is a fantastic opportunity for businesses and organisations to earn recognition for their hard work and commitment to provide the fantastic destination and visitor experiences that Scotland is famous for.
If you haven’t already done so, then now is the time to make your nomination to the Scottish Thistle Awards."
