The National Property Board Sweden is the single largest destination manager in Sweden. The board works with tenants, agencies and organisations to develop the tourism industry in Sweden.
According to the appropriation directions for 2013, the National Property Board Sweden must develop destinations in cooperation with municipalities, county councils and the tourism industry and prioritise development of the destinations where they can bring about long-term agreements on local financing or secure commitments from local partners.
Our goal is to work with tenants and other partners to develop our destinations in order to improve long-term economic performance and improve the experience of visitors. We will actively contribute to work on sustainable tourism and increased growth in the tourism industry.

Sustainable destination development
The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth has been mandated by the government to make extra efforts to strengthen and develop sustainable tourism destinations over a three-year period. The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth has chosen five areas with the potential to develop as sustainable destinations. They are Bohuslän, Kiruna, Stockholm archipelago, Vimmerby and Åre. The National Property Board Sweden has destinations at two of these locations, Bohuslän and Stockholm archipelago. The National Property Board Sweden is participating in the work to develop the five destinations.
