Award-winning luxury venue, Dundas Castle, has welcomed a new face to its sales team with the appointment of Laura Burdin to the role of Commercial Sales Manager.
Laura brings over 10 years’ of experience working in sales, events and hospitality. She joins the Dundas team after four years in the conference and events team at Doubletree by Hilton in Dundee, where she was responsible for implementing budgets. Prior to this, Laura spent three years at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel in the food and beverage team, and assisted in both the soft launch and grand opening of Hotel Gotham Manchester.
In her new role at Dundas Castle, Laura will promote the venue as one of Scotland’s premier private events spaces and she will play a key role in achieving the company’s growth goals, as well as building on the venue’s outstanding reputation for service and delivery to delegates. Laura will work with local and international clients and strengthen contacts with DMCs and corporates.
Commenting on Laura’s appointment, owner Sir Jack Stewart-Clark said: “Laura is an excellent addition to the team here at Dundas. We are delighted to welcome her and we are confident that she will go above and beyond, like all of our team here. We look forward to a significant increase in our corporate business under her leadership in this sector of our activities”.
Laura added: “I’m incredibly excited to join the Dundas Castle team and support them in positioning the venue as one of the best private event locations in Scotland. Dundas has unrivalled offerings in Edinburgh, including its accommodation offering, the extensive outdoor grounds of the estate and the off road 4×4 driving range – there’s nothing to compare with it anywhere nearby. I am looking forward to promoting this enchanting and stunning venue to more people and seeing our clients return for more successful events”.
