Realta Recognised in Scottish Enterprise Awards

The awards, organised by SME News, aim to recognise and honour the achievements of businesses operating in Scotland.

It shines a spotlight on the success stories, innovations, and contributions made by businesses across various industries in the Scottish business landscape.

The largest public event Shetland has seen in over a decade, the tall ships was widely acclaimed for putting Shetland on an international stage, with 37 tall ships from 12 different countries.

Event sites saw over 11,000 visitors each day. The event was live-streamed for the first time and reached over 17,500 viewers around the world.

Ms Miller said: “It’s been such a busy and exciting year with so much hard work going into the delivery of the tall ships event, while still managing other existing contracts.

“Being recognised in these national awards is an honour and a welcome acknowledgement of the important services that my business provides on an ongoing basis for Shetland.

“As a team at Realta, we are now looking ahead to new projects and ongoing work with the Shetland community.”
