Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) April 1, 2011
Leaders of the digital services industry will converge together in Colorado Springs at the historic Broadmoor Resort at Acceller’s 2011 Summit conference during the week of April 18. The annual conference hosts sales and marketing executives from the top firms in the consumer communications and entertainment sectors, like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon.
The conference offers networking and educational opportunities designed to enhance performance in sales, leadership, marketing and operations. Several hand-selected expert speakers from a broad range of industries and backgrounds will participate in the conference as well.
The Summit’s performance theme draws from the experience Acceller has applied to its innovative comparison service for deals on Internet, TV and phone at DigitalLanding.com.
The theme of the event is “Reach the Peak” – or reaching the next level of performance management. Those in attendance will network with Acceller’s leadership teams, and have breakout sessions with industry peers. Also, attendees will get a guided tour of the U.S. Olympic Training facility, with an opportunity to interact with athletes in training.
