About Joakim

After over 40 years of international travel to more than 50 countries, our founder Joakim began arranging trips for the companies he worked for about 15 years ago.

Now, Joakim is the owner of Bodin and Partners, a Swedish-based travel specialist that focuses on MICE; meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions. We also offer luxury leisure travel, primarily for clients we have served through MICE events.

Rather than just focusing on destinations or becoming meeting experts, we focus on our clients. That’s our niche, to have the most satisfied customers.


Virtuoso is the ultimate global network for those of us who work with luxurious and memorable travel experiences. We have been working with them since 2021, and it gives us partnerships with over 2,200 of the absolute best hotels, cruise lines, tour operators, and much more all around the world!
