Outreach Launches Inaugural Conference, Unleash 2017, With Microsoft's Scott Guthrie as a Headlining Speaker

Fast Growing Sales Tech Company to Gather Sales Leadership to Discuss Unleashing Teams' Inner Super Heroes at Exclusive Three-Day Event in Napa, Calif. June 4-6; Guest Speakers From Microsoft, CSO Insights, Forrester & More

SEATTLE, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Outreach, the system of action for sales teams, today announced the launch of its inaugural Unleash 2017 conference, taking place June 4-6, 2017 at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, in Sonoma, CA. The three-day conference will gather Outreach customers, sales leaders, and industry influencers to discuss strategies for unleashing the full potential of their sales teams to achieve unprecedented results. Leading the line-up of diverse guest speakers consisting of sales experts, influencers and visionaries is Microsoft's EVP of Cloud and Enterprise, Scott Guthrie, who will discuss advancements in AI and machine learning and how sales can expect to benefit in 2017 and beyond. The launch of Unleash marks another milestone for Outreach, which has grown 800% since launching in 2014.

By the end of this year, half of all sales reps are expected to miss their quota due to fragmented tools and data sources, heavy reliance on marketing to build pipeline, and ever-growing administrative tasks tied to CRM systems that drastically infringe on active selling time. With the majority of organizations planning to continue raising annual revenue targets, sales requires a smarter playbook. Outreach will upend this major disconnect at its conference--serving as a meeting ground for the sales community to collaborate, debate, and learn strategies for overcoming common sales challenges. Combining Outreach's in-the-trenches experience with highly influential sales practitioners, audiences will gain actionable insights on how to beat quotas, create fail-proof playbooks, and instill confidence across their entire sales team.  

"Unleash is all about sales excellence, and arming sales executives with the confidence and competitive edge to outperform, learn, grow and elevate their craft," said Manny Medina, cofounder and CEO of Outreach. "We're gathering the 'best of the best' sales gurus, industry analysts and business influencers who know what it's like to overcome obstacles and come out winning on the other side. At Outreach, we're all about action and results – Unleash is the first conference where attendees will walk away with an actionable blueprint for their sales strategy."

In just two years, Outreach has grown its customer base to over 1,100 companies, making it one of the top-five fastest growing SaaS companies, alongside Slack, Yammer, and Box. Fortune 1000 customers like CenturyLink, Adobe, Glassdoor and Marketo rely on Outreach's system of action because of its enterprise-grade scalability and feature set, market-leading success and support, and proven results. On average, customers using the platform gain 1-2 more hours of active selling time daily per rep, secure 30% more meetings and opportunities, and ultimately contribute 10-25% more revenue to the organization's bottom line.

"Outreach has become an indispensable system for our sales teams. Shortly after deployment we saw an uptick in active opportunities, meetings, and overall funnel. This has helped enable a cultural change in our sales professionals to increase the amount of prospecting for new logos as well as deeper penetration into existing accounts," said Rick Buyens, Regional Vice President, Global Sales at CenturyLink. "Knowing Outreach, Unleash will become the epicenter of sales excellence. This will be a must-attend event for all sales decision-makers."
