EventScotland has been shortlisted as a finalist at this year’s Sport Business Awards in the Best Business Serving Sport category.
The Sports Business Awards were conceived to celebrate the hard work and achievements of individuals and teams who make sporting success possible; the organisers, the suppliers, the designers, the administrators, the advisors, the technologists, the marketers and the companies who ensure that the business of sport, in all its various and myriad forms, happens successfully.
Paul Bush OBE, VisitScotland’s Director of Events, said: “I’m delighted EventScotland has been shortlisted as a finalist at this year’s Sport Business Awards. Strong partnerships are the cornerstone of our success and it is this collaborative approach that has ensured we continually secure major international events years after year for Scotland.
“To be up for the Best Business Serving Sport award is a wonderful recognition for the team whose dedication to continually developing an exciting and varied portfolio of sporting and cultural events ensures Scotland is the perfect stage for events.”
The Best Business Serving Sport award is open to companies working in and around sport. EventScotland has been shortlisted for its work with Edinburgh Leisure, City of Edinburgh Council, and the British Mountaineering Council in the bidding for and securing of the IFSC Climbing World Cup (Lead and Speed) and Paraclimbing Cup in Edinburgh at EICA:Ratho in September 2017.
Winners from each of the 17 categories will be announced on 1st June.
