Key staff

Þorbjörg Friðriksdóttir

Senior Project Manager Conferences

Tobba, as she´s called, has a BSc degree in Tourism and further diplomas in Project Management and Sales- and Marketing. In addition, she studied Folklore as she is fascinated by the commonly held belief in Iceland that elves and trolls live amongst us. On top of all this Tobba has worked in the MICE section since 2006, organizing various meetings, programmes for incentive groups, conferences and events. Always smiling, Tobba grabs every opportunity to hike or go horseback riding. Having her roots in Skagafjordur, a northern district famed for horse breeding, very likely explains her passion for horses. Maybe you should ask her to arrange a visit there.

Tinna Ýrr Arnardóttir

Senior Project Manager Conferences

With years of experience working for Iceland Travel, Tinna has been a member of the conference team since 2005. Prior to that she made sure everything added up in the Accounts Department and always had an eye for the smallest of details, a quality that now stands her in good stead when she plans and organizes conferences of all sizes. Her reputation as an expert shopper precedes her and if anyone is looking for an expert shopping guide while travelling in Iceland, then Tinna is the perfect choice.

Helga Lára Guðmundsdóttir

Manager PCO

We´re convinced Helga Lára was a secret agent in a former life, so prolific and varied is her resume. She is the Department Manager of Iceland Travel Conferences and holds a BA in French and philosophy, as well as a BA in Child Development and Teaching and Educational Organization from the University of Uppsala. As if all that isn't enough she also has a CMM certification in conference organization from the University of Cornell. On top of all that (because she had time to kill) our dear Helga Lára is a licensed tour guide from The Iceland Tourist Guide School. She has worked in conference services for many years and we´re truly fortunate to have a person of such expertise leading our team.

Kristján Jóhann Kristjánsson

Online Marketing and System Administration

Kristján might look like a kid but he certainly has wide experience working with a number of good and not-so-good computer systems and so has become adept at getting the most out of them, which in turn helps other users optimize their time. Krissi, to use his nickname, has his creative side: he plays guitar, likes to write and speaks fluent Spanish after spending 15 years in Barcelona. Krissi is a school of life sort of bloke who simply can´t bear to hear the defeatist retort of “that can´t be done”.

Davíð Valdimarsson

System Administration Conferences

Davíð´s educational background is in the field of graphic design and printing. After a long and varied career in the printing business, Davíð pretty well knows all there is about printing, design and layout. Here´s someone with a keen eye for quality design. Affable, helpful and unfazed, he´s the perfect guy to turn to when faced with those frustrating technological glitches. Away from the office Davíð is equally creative, plays guitar in a band and loves to travel with his wife who luckily happens to be a stewardess.
