MEET OUR EMPLOYEES
Would you like a glimpse of what it's like to work here from the inside? Read what some of our employees like about working at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and Gothia Towers.
Jacob - Salesperson
From budget and market plan to implementation. As a salesperson for the Boat Fair, Jacob has a very wide role.
Lina - Supervisor
Lina started as a hotel receptionist at Gothia Towers. Today she is a supervisor and describes her work as inspiring and challenging.
Nicklas - Sous chef
Nicklas is sous chef at Event & catering.
“Here no two days are alike. And the group has grown enormously in the last few years, so we are in an exciting development phase,” he says.
Frida - Business developer
Frida came to the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre from a background as project manager and marketing manager. And she is really happy here.
“I develop new business in existing projects and test the ground for new initiatives. The environment is very inspiring and I am developing all the time,” she says.
John - Accountant
John swapped London for Gothenburg and loves the Swedish working climate. He gets a lot of responsibility here and often has the opportunity to test new and challenging tasks.
Tomas - Sales Executive
Tomas is excited about doing business that develops both the Book Fair and its customers.
“The highpoint of the year is the last Thursday in September when the Book Fair opens, when expectant visitors are getting off of full trams and forming a queue around the building,” he says.
Development, comradeship and leadership
Development and leadership are important to us. We know that leadership is an important part of helping you develop with us. We therefore work actively at having good leadership in place. But your development needs more than good leadership. If you wish to grow as an employee with us, you must have a sense of curiosity and the will to develop. And obviously you must take responsibility for what you do in your job, because it is in your day-to-day work that most of the learning occurs. We also include in this the feedback you receive from your colleagues, your manager and our visitors.
Malin - Director Association Sales
Malin has overall responsibility for sales of Swedish, Nordic and international congresses. This involves complex sales work and big meetings with many delegates – with lead times of two to ten years.
“We work with a five to ten year time frame. Right now we are planning for business in 2020 to 2022. The lead times may be long, but the job is fast moving and varied. One day we may be receiving representatives and showing them the best that Göteborg and the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre group have to offer and the next I may be working on business development and coaching employees.
Carolin - Production Planner
Whatever the working area, the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre/Gothia Towers offers an international atmosphere marked by collaboration. Carolin started as a summer temp in the hotel lobby. She is now Production Planner, and designs layouts and coordinates internal building.
“One day I am among publishers on the exhibition floor, on other days the lift up to the office smells of horses – and you never know who you are going to meet in the corridors. Unexpected meetings can be great!”
