Introducing the 2022 Top 100 Women In Tourism!

We’re absolutely delighted to announce the 2022 Top 100 Women In Tourism!!  A campaign which we originally launched back in 2018, this year we received nearly 250 nominations – the highest level since we created the Top 100!  Those working across Scottish tourism were encourage to nominate, and recognise, colleagues doing amazing things from our industry.

Hotel Managers, Guest Experience experts, Founders, Café Owners, Project Managers, Business Development leads, and Social Influencers are among those recognised within the Top 100.  From Orkney to Dumfries & Galloway, the Isle of Arran to Fife; what connects all these amazing women, is their passion for Scottish tourism.

Commenting on the 2022 Top 100 Women In Tourism, Susan Russell, Chair of Women In Tourism, said:

“We have been completely overwhelmed by the response to the 2022 Top Women In Tourism, and on behalf of the entire board I would like to say a huge thank you to each and every person that took the time to nominate someone doing amazing things for our industry.  Today’s announcement recognises those that are leading the way in innovative ideas, are supporting and mentoring colleagues through unprecedented times, and are welcoming visitors from both near and far. 

Now, more than ever, it’s important that we recognise not just the economic benefits of tourism, but the opportunity for the sector to be recognised as a career of choice.  The 2022 Top 100 highlights the wealth of talent we have here in Scotland, and we hope it inspires and motivates future tourism leaders.  I’d like to congratulate our 2022 Top 100 Women In Tourism on all they’ve achieved, and continue to do.  Without your passion, resilience and dedication, tourism in Scotland simply wouldn’t be what it is today.”

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.  To date and to our knowledge, this initiative has not run again.

Join us to celebrate the 2022 (and 2020!) Top 100 Women In Tourism!

On Tuesday 7 June we are hosting an event in the iconic Waldorf Astoria – The Caledonian, in the heart of Edinburgh, from 6 pm.  This will be an opportunity to celebrate both the 2022 and 2020 Top 100 (who we were unable to meet due to the pandemic).  This will be our first in-person event since March 2020 and we can’t wait to meet, network and celebrate with everyone.

During the evening you will also have the chance to hear from our Founder & Chair, Susan Russell, and Ivan McKee MSP, Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise.
