Markus Meier
CEO

  • Creative Mastermind
  • Thinks out of the Box
  • Catering specialist
  • 20 years of experience in the event industrie
  • 😊 Can only achieve his goals with coffee

After studying Tourism, and graduating from the Tourismusschule Bad Leonfelden I spent a total of twelve years in the Bermudas and on the Cayman Islands, and I also lived in Boston, in the USA.

Of course, I also worked. As a Restaurant Manager and Assistant General Manager in large catering businesses. Following my return to the Danube, I attended further studies in Event Management, then joined a highly thought of event management agency in the Austrian town of Linz.

I rapidly rose to the position of Project Manager and was responsible not just for progressively larger events, but also as Agency Manager for the entire team.

Dealing with people gives me just as much pleasure as the creative work involved in the design of events and their meticulous and on-schedule delivery.

Marco Reiter
CEO

  • Sales & Marketing Expert
  • High communication skills
  • Trend-Scout
  • Digital Hero
  • 😊 lost his phone in the sea

Studied nutrition and business studies, the two focal areas of study at the HBLW that I attended in Linz and from which I graduated with the Austrian 'Matura'. I then went on to study Global Sales at Fachhochschule Steyr and this was great theoretical preparation for practical work at the Design Center in Linz.

There for four years I studied Marketing, I was Sales & Marketing Manager at this renowned event and conference location, and I was able to win many new events and customers.

I was also taken on board by the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg in Ravensburg to pass on my knowledge about high-end sales events as a tutor in workshops. I am motivated by the process of turning ideas into reality and my core skills are an intuitive sense about customers, and my staying power.

Philipp Kastler
Senior Project Manager

  • Loves to get things done
  • Down-to-earth & humorous
  • Creative & innovative
  • Music expert
  • 😊 Also known as "Leberkastler" in the ATTENTION. office!

As a skilled production engineer and graphic designer, I took off to Los Angeles to pursue my passion for music.

After successfully completing a diploma in Media & Art and a Master in English, I worked with numerous major international festivals such as Coachella, Burning Man, EDC Las Vegas, SXSW, Shambhala, Boom, Lightning in a Bottle or Dirtybird Campout in a variety of roles. My tasks ranged from marketing, press and digital publicity to artist management and booking and up to conception and production. During this time, I was able to make many new contacts and gained countless experiences that will help me with the smooth implementation of new ideas.

Innovative and unique solutions to create an exceptional experience for customers and visitors are my great strengths, and I would like to share these with ATTENTION. to bring them to the next level.

Lena Sonnleitner
Senior Project Manager

  • Marketing all-rounder
  • Reliable
  • Enthusiastic
  • Sunny and open minded
  • 😊 Has enough decorations at home to fill multiple shops

With the organization of my prom, I was catched by the enthusiasm for organizing events very early on and have not let go since. That's why I decided to study media and communication consulting at the University of Applied Sciences in St. Pölten, which has event management as a major focus. During both my bachelor's and master's degrees, it became clear to me that I had chosen the right path.

I gained my first industry-specific professional experience at an event agency in Vienna and in the marketing department of the Musiktheater in Linz. Then it took me to the Austria Center Vienna, where I was able to live out my passion for marketing, events and congresses for 5 years.

Since Vienna is a beautiful city, but not my home, I finally returned to Upper Austria and - staying true to my passion – where I am now, at the event agency ATTENTION. As a friendly, open and helpful person, I am enjoying my job and working with other people is very important to me.

Anton Prenner
Junior Project Manager

  • Event enthusiastic
  • Creative Mind
  • High sense of responsibility
  • Well structured
  • 😊 Hobby Farmer with a great passion for cows

My life has always been shaped by two great passions: sports and music. What connects both of them are events, because they have the power to bring people together and inspire them.

After graduating from high school, I studied business administration at the University of Graz. In addition to numerous practical experiences, I can look back on more than three incredibly valuable years as a Student Trainee at AVL List GmbH in Graz in the areas of event, project and process management. To specialize further, I then decided to do a master's degree in business administration in the field of sports and event management at the University of Schloss Seeburg. After graduating from university, I went on a trip around the world lasting several months, where I was able to gain wonderful impressions and getting to know interesting people and cultures.

Now I'm back and highly motivated to take off in the event industry. Attention offers me the optimal framework conditions to be able to develop my potential in the best possible way.

Janine Oberreither
Junior Project Manager

  • organizational skills
  • Versatile and imaginative
  • High sense of responsibility
  • Motivated and always in a good mood
  • 😊 Has more shoes at home than a whole shoe store

I discovered my passion for event and project management during my training at HLW Steyr. The subjects marketing, project management, business administration and design have always been among my favorites.

After leaving school, I became more and more aware during my previous job in internal sales that dealing with customers and the positive customer feedback gave me motivation to expand and improve my skills again and again.

At ATTENTION, I am now convinced that I have found a reliable and innovative employer where I can contribute my know-how and a lot of passion in the most diverse project phases.

With my commitment, I want to make a significant contribution to ensuring that every planned event is an impressive experience for customers and their guests that will be remembered for a long time.
