Karin Mäntymäki from Visit Stockholm named new chairperson of Swedish Network of Convention Bureaus

Visit Stockholm’s Director of Sales and Operations Karin Mäntymäki has been elected as the new chairperson of the Swedish Network of Convention Bureaus, an organisation aiming to promote Sweden as a conference destination.

The Swedish Network of Convention Bureaus (SNCVB) is a non-profit organisation bringing together 22 Swedish Convention Bureaus and primarily concentrating on two focus areas: business value and exchange of knowledge. Current focus is on how Sweden can boost its international presence in order to secure growth for the meeting industry.

“The fact that we bring together 22 destinations within our network is globally unique,” says Karin Mäntymäki, Director of Sales and Operations at Visit Stockholm. The organisation pursues issues that are important for Sweden as a conference destination.

“Conferences and meetings are essential for Stockholm. With Karin shouldering the role of chairperson of SNCVB we have even better scope for collaborating nationally in order to strengthen Sweden’s offering. This is good for the whole of Sweden,” says Thomas Andersson, CEO of Visit Stockholm.

Karin Mäntymäki was elected as chairperson at the organisation’s annual meeting in Västerås on 6 September. Other members of the board include Sofie Lidholm, Västerås Convention Bureau, Ante Jankovic from Jönköping, Emelie Gard from Eskilstuna, Cecilia Berglund from Umeå, and Anki Sandberg from Trollhättan.
