Global electronics company, Philips is to support Scottish business charity the Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland. Philip’s lighting sector will be involved with HIT Scotland through a three year deal as corporate sponsors.

In return for a donation to the charity’s scholarship fund, Philips will have a presence at HIT Scotland events throughout the year and will be promoted on marketing activities by the charity.

Philips has been supplying the hospitality industry for over 100 years.  As well audio and visual equipment, the company provides energy saving solutions to help improve the experience of guests through lighting.

Lighting is in an important part of the customer experience and I am sure our scholars and supporters will have much to gain through our partnership with Phillips.”
