Sarah Durai is the Director of Sports and Entertainment Sales for JRK Hotel Group. She is based in Nashville and primarily sells for the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown, but also works with the Oceana in Santa Monica, The Roger in New York, and the Holiday Inn Express in Downtown Nashville. Sarah is a Nashville native and has been in the hospitality industry for the last 10 years. She started her career at Tennessee’s only 5-Star, 5-Diamond property, The Hermitage Hotel where she was able to strengthen her art of true southern hospitality. Sarah loves the industry that she is in and states that her favorite part about her career is the relationships that she gets to make with people from all over the world and being able to leave them with a positive, lasting impression. Sarah studied Hospitality and Resort Management at the University of Memphis, and is currently a member of Meeting Professionals International where she is able to meet lots of other people in this wonderful industry. Sarah feels that she is in the perfect role, as her passions outside of work are traveling, cheering on the Predators with the rest of Smashville, Fantasy Football and Hockey, Sunday football (especially when her Chargers are playing), playing poker, attending concerts and listening to live music, and spending time in her wonderful city with family and friends.
