Copenhagen Convention Bureau has officially showed off its new director of convention, Kit Lykketoft (pictured), although she began her new role in June.
Appointed by Copenhagen’s DMO, Wonderful Copenhagen, Lykketoft has taken over from Jonas Wilstrup who has moved to become the chief financial officer at Wonderful Copenhagen.
Lykketoft is also now responsible for Copenhagen’s destination network model, Meetingplace, which is a collaboration between Copenhagen CVB and local suppliers.
Copenhagen CVB and Meetingplace recently launched their new strategy ‘Copenhagen means business’, a campaign designed to keep delivering on the needs of business events clients.
Lykketoft has previous experience working for organisations including the Danish Ministry of Employment. She was also deputy director at MindLab and is a member of the UNDP’s Innovation Facility Advisory Board.
Copenhagen occupies fourth place in ICCA’s latest global city ranking and earlier this year Wonderful Copenhagen launched its new overall tourism strategy ‘Localhood’.
