The Molson Coors Scottish Entertainment & Hospitality Awards 2018 are back for the 7th year to celebrate the best of entertainment and hospitality in Scotland!

 

The edition 2017 saw over 800 representatives from the best of the Scottish entertainment and hospitality trade take over the Merchant Square, Glasgow for a night of celebration, big wins and Las Vegas style entertainment. After five fun-packed years the Gala Final has become an exciting mainstay of the hospitality industry annual calendar and this year’s event topped them all.

The 2017 competition, presented by Molson Coors, received more nominations and votes than ever before with over 3,000 venues taking part! In the weeks running up to the event the judging panel toured the country performing secret visits to discover the best of the best. The 120 shortlisted venues, the nation’s favourites, packed out Merchant Square to discover their fate.

The evening was not just rewarding for the winners; there were also charitable efforts on behalf of the Scottish Entertainment & Hospitality Awards 2017 charity partner, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland who raised over £20,000. Official Travel Partner, Barrhead Travel gifted an absolutely fantastic grand star raffle prize and one lucky guest won a 5-night holiday at the 5 star ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas with flights included!

This year we are bringing the Circus to you as we are transforming Merchant Square into our very own Big Top! On Sunday 29th April, acrobats, jugglers, fire breathers and stunt performers will capture that circus spirit from entrance to exit!
