XANT’s popular virtual summits are quickly becoming must-attend industry sales events. In March, the Sales Acceleration Summit – the first of two virtual events in 2014 – garnered more than 20,000 registrants, 8,000 post-event attendees and 6,000 tweets during the event.
Sales acceleration is currently one of the fastest growing technology markets in the world. According to the Sales Acceleration Technology Market Size Study, sales acceleration represents $12.8 billion of spending in technology – a figure that every indicator shows will continue to grow rapidly.
Sales acceleration technology facilitates the emerging business practice known as lead-to-revenue management.
“Companies that have implemented lead-to-revenue management systems have demonstrated business value: They contribute more to the sales pipeline; they have higher levels of process maturity; they measure results more holistically; and they have higher levels of sales-to-marketing alignment,” writes Forrester analyst Lori Wizdo in a recent research report (Lead-To-Revenue Pioneers Discover It’s Not Demand Generation On Steroids, Forrester Research, Inc., August 19, 2014).
Sponsors of the Sales Acceleration Technology Summit include XANT, LinkedIn, Marketo, DocuSign, Apttus, Gainsight and LogMeIn.
