Karin Mäntymäki - New Director of Stockholm Convention Bureau

Karin Mäntymäki has taken over as director of the Stockholm Convention Bureau, a department of Stockholm Visitors Board. She succeeds Henrik von Arnold, who will be moving back to Vienna to work at his own company.

Karin Mäntymäki comes from a position as Head of Congresses and Guest Events at Stockholmsmässan, the largest congress and exhibition center in Scandinavia.

"Karin is a dream recruitment for us. She has a broad international network and is a known figure in the Swedish meetings industry. She is driven and result-oriented and will be a strong contender in the development of Stockholm as a meeting destination," said Peter Lindqvist, CEO of Stockholm Visitors Board. Karin has extensive experience in international events at both strategic and operational levels.

"Stockholm's brand is strong, but the competition in the future is getting even tougher. The close collaboration within the meetings industry in Stockholm is a strength, but to succeed in the future we need to find new ways and invest in more of Stockholm's profile as a destination with a world class intellectual capital," said Karin Mäntymäki.
