“Great sales leaders become great by learning from their peers and journeying in the direction of the latest trends and technology. The sales world we live in is constantly changing, and we come to Accelerate to stay ahead of those changes by connecting with the right people, the best practices and the latest tools needed to win.”

What To Expect at Accelerate
KEYNOTES AND PRESENTATIONS
We despise boring keynotes and panels along with the typical "bland" sessions that define most events and instead opt for up-to-date, actionable sessions delivered by real practitioners who have proven strategies and tactics that work. Think focused, crisp, “TED Talks” for business leaders. In addition to industry peers and experts, you will hear from marquee speakers...
Valuable Connections
Attendees range from sales and marketing executives at established brands, chief customer officers at international organizations and startup founders who are working to build the brands of the future. This mix creates unique networking opportunities you just can’t find anywhere else.
Unique Experiences
Accelerate is a unique combination of focused work and focused play that will provide transformative business insights and connections at the incomparable New York Stock Exchange.
