Media Release: Events company ‘Team’ up with Edinburgh hotel


TEAM Challenge Company, one of the UK’s largest independent corporate team building providers, has announced a new strategic partnership with Melville Castle; a country house hotel and luxury event venue in Edinburgh.

The partnership follows four key appointments at Team Challenge Company on the back of an impressive 11 per cent growth in bookings, with more than 50,000 individuals attending one of the company’s events in the last 12 months.

Situated on the fringe of Scotland’s capital, the 32-bedroom Melville Castle sits within 50 acres of landscaped gardens. Corporate teams booking the hotel can make use of four meeting rooms with capacity for 100 guests as well as a range of break out rooms. The hotel is just 20 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, making it an attractive option for both UK and international business clients.

Gerard Crowley, co-director of Team Challenge Company, said:

“Melville Castle, with its stunning surroundings and fantastic facilities, is the ideal location for corporate team building, entertainment and hospitality events. We are really looking forward to working with the staff to ensure Melville Castle is renowned as a hub for team building and corporate entertainment events in Edinburgh.”

Lorenzo Menghini, general manager of Melville Castle, added:

“We are delighted to announce the launch of our joint partnership programme.

“Team Challenge Company brings great creativity, expertise and many years of experience, whilst Melville Castle complements this with its spacious grounds and tranquil retreat-like setting.

“I am sure the new collaborated packages will be a great success with visiting corporate and incentive clients.”

The official launch event to be held on 23 April at Melville Castle is set to showcase Team Challenge Company’s team building and evening entertainment options which will be available to corporate guests.

The hotel, which already has over 50 meetings booked for 2015, will now offer bespoke leadership development programmes, conference breakout sessions and high end evening entertainment such as Corporate Gameshows, Fun Casino Nights and Murder Mystery Dinners.

This latest partnership with Melville Castle is the most recent addition to Team Challenge Company’s existing links, including those with the luxury hotel and spa Gleneagles and one of the UK’s top independent hotel brands, Crerar Hotels.

Melville Castle’s four meeting rooms can be arranged into seven layouts in addition to a marquee which can hold up to 250 delegates when set in theatre style. The country hotel also has a range of break out rooms available, free Wi-Fi throughout and parking for 80 cars.
