The Estonian Convention Bureau has appointed Külli Teimann as a new Association Expert.
Teimann’s main focus will be on attracting international associations and academic conferences to the country. She will also manage the Estonian Conference Ambassador Programme.
She has extensive experience in the world of international conferences and in the work of a conference bureau – she was also a project manager at Estonian Convention Bureau in 2008-2015.
Teimann has also worked as an advisor to the Estonian Presidency of the European Union, as a congress manager for the International European College of Sport Science Association in Germany, and as a sales manager for conferences and events at Tallink Hotels.
She said: “I see that Estonia has a lot to offer – we are innovative and one of the world’s leading digital countries, but at the same time care a lot for sustainability, we have clean air and food, very high-quality hotels, good value for money and unique venues. For many delegates, we are a new and interesting destination, although still in Europe and very easy to travel to.”
Kadru Karu, managing director of the ECB, said: “We believe that with her diverse experience, including both on the trade association and governmental meeting side, Külli will be a fantastic addition to the executive team ranks of the ECB.”
