Petra FeistlSenior Manager Conferences
I have always wanted to combine my passion for travelling with my work. So, the decision to complete my Master’s Degree in the field of Tourism and Leisure Time Management was an easy one. I’ve been living in Austria all my life, however, various internships in the UK and Mexico not only broadened my personal horizon, but also enabled me to gain work experience in my preferred field. My passion for organizing conferences was finally anchored during my internship at ICS in 2004, and from then on I decided to stay in this fascinating industry. Working for a Professional Conference Organizer in Europe for four years, and managing various medical congresses and events, made me appreciate the importance of being well organized, detailed and being enthusiastic about what you do, even more.
After gaining further experience in communications and administration for an international company for several years, I decided to go “back to my roots”. I am very excited to be a part of the ICS team (again) and look forward to many exciting events to come!
Outside of work I enjoy being out in the fresh air, spending time with my family and friends, and of course travel the world and take a lot of pictures!
It is the will of the heart that decides our destiny, for to achieve our goals, we must not only act but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.
