With almost 10 years of experience in the world of events and hospitality Laura joined the team at Archer Yates Associates as their latest Event Manager in February 2018.
Having gained her degree in Hospitality Management with Tourism at the University of Portsmouth, Laura went on to work for a number of high-profile hotel brands, including Holiday Inn with IHG and Mercure. Most recently she worked for The Jockey Club as Senior Business Development Executive for the South West Region, at Cheltenham Racecourse.
