Congratulations to our very own, Sallyann Tindall, for being honoured by industry in this year’s top 100 women in tourism 2020!
She’s worked relentlessly this year as an inspirational leader and continues to push forward Glasgow as a destination, innovate around collaboration and pursue opportunities for the greater good of the industry.
Well deserved Sal and thank you for everything you do!
Reflecting a diverse industry which drives the Scottish economy and delivers the warm welcome which visitors from all over the world recognise and celebrate; the Women in Tourism Top 100 2020 includes those working within hotels, destination organisations, tour operators, marketing agencies and visitor attractions.
During an unprecedented year, the WIT Top 100 gives special recognition to those working on behalf of the Scottish tourism sector, including colleagues from the Scottish Tourism Alliance, the Association of Scotland’s Self Caterers, HIT Scotland and ASVA (Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions).
In ensuring the sector continues to be heard, Kate Nicholls from Hospitality UK receives special recognition as the only addition to the list from outside Scotland. As a key voice of tourism and hospitality, Kate has worked tirelessly to ensure individuals and businesses are heard, and continues to lobby on behalf of the industry.
Susan Russell, Chair of Women In Tourism, said:
“2020 has been an unprecedented year for not just tourism, but our way of life as we know it. Today’s announcement gives us an opportunity to recognise colleagues across our industry who go above and beyond on a daily basis.
The Women in Tourism Top 100 2020 reflects the sector as a whole – from Shetland to the Scottish Borders and the Outer Hebrides to Fife, and while we recognise the challenges facing our industry, today’s announcement is an important moment to celebrate and thank everyone for all that they have done, and continue to do.”
The inaugural Women In Tourism Top 100 was announced in July 2018 in response to the Caterer Magazine’s Top 100 Most Powerful People in hospitality which recognised only 13 women. Sadly, many of those in the 2020 WIT Top 100 are no longer in the roles attributed in the list due to the impacts of COVID-19.
