Hot on the heels of its successful conference in Denver, Colorado, Telarus selects the Nashville-based Gaylord property to host its annual world-wide conference

August 8, 2019

SANDY, Utah – Telarus LLC, leading master agent of business cloud infrastructure, contact center, and cybersecurity services, announced that it had selected the Gaylord Opryland Resort as the location for its 2020 Telarus Partner Summit (TPS) event. The luxurious 1,500-room hotel will play host to the over 1,000 expected guests of Telarus which include sales partners, company employees, and leading suppliers of cybersecurity, cloud computing, unified communications, contact center, IoT, and mobility solutions.

“Coming off the heels of an amazing event at the brand-new Gaylord Rockies, we are excited to host our next Telarus Partner Summit in another Gaylord property in Nashville,” commented Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus. “TPS has evolved, grown, and taken on a life of its own. Finding a location for 2020 that would continue to help us improve the overall experience was not an easy task. We needed a location that could provide a fun, welcoming atmosphere for our guests and be easy to access for our east coast partner base, and we’re confident that they are going to love the Gaylord Opryland. It’s one of the largest resorts in Tennessee, it’s minutes from the Nashville Airport, and it’s going to be the home of the best-attended event the Channel has ever seen.”

Created in 2012, the Telarus Partner Summit is an annual event that brings together all of Telarus’ top-selling independent sales agents and the leadership teams of many of Telarus award-winning cloud and broadband service providers. The three-day event was held at the Stein Eriksen Resort in Deer Valley, Utah from 2012 to 2016, the Boca Raton Resort in 2017, and the Gaylord Rockies in 2019. The core of the event consists of educational tracks, awards ceremonies, and networking events. Each year the event has culminated with a major software release that enables Telarus partners to find, source, and monitor better UCaaS, Contact Center, Mobility, IoT, and cybersecurity solutions than their peers. These unique, patented tools form the basis for the company’s mantra “Built for You.”

“We are so excited for our second convention at a Gaylord resort,” added Richard Murray, COO of Telarus. “This event is the one time each year that our partners, suppliers, and employees can come together, in person, to sharpen the sword of our understanding of the cloud communications landscape, to hone our collective strategy to sell more, to build lasting relationships, and to make plans for the future. We have worked very hard over the years to evolve this event to make it more personalized, more focused, and more fun than any other events in this industry. Now, with over 900 attendees, we are looking forward to moving TPS to different locations each year. This will give us the ability to accommodate even more guests and to keep the event new and fresh. We are confident our partners and suppliers are going to love it.”

“Just like we teach our partners to be different and to be the experts, we likewise want to keep innovating and improving, starting with our marquee event,” added Patrick Oborn, co-founder of Telarus and creator of the Partner Summit event. “With the help of our suppliers, field assets, and social media outreach, we continue to recruit new sales partners at a record rate, and we have to expand the event to larger resorts so that we can accommodate everyone. We also recognize the tremendous growth we are experiencing in the East and bringing the national Partner Summit back to them makes practical sense when it comes to logistics. We couldn’t be more excited about the growing businesses being built by our sales partners and the decision to locate our ‘Super Bowl’ event in Nashville next year.”

Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, located at 2800 Opryland Drive in Nashville, Tenn., is the flagship property of Gaylord Hotels, part of the Marriott portfolio of brands. The 2,888-room hotel offers “everything in one place”— SoundWaves upscale indoor/outdoor water attraction, diverse dining options, a full-service spa, top-notch entertainment, on-site shopping, an award-winning golf course and more.
