Alabanza Corporation, a leader in automated web hosting solutions, today announced the company’s first annual Alabanza User Conference, taking place September 30 through October 2, 2004 at its headquarters in downtown Baltimore, Maryland. At the conference, Alabanza’s web hosting clients will learn about strategies for improving upsell and upgrade rates and increasing revenues, as well as how to stay competitive and ahead of market forces in an ultra-competitive hosting market. Attendees will also benefit from sharing best practices with other users, and work with Alabanza’s staff to further develop their business, technical and marketing skills. As a thank you and special incentive to its customers, Alabanza is offering to cover the cost of hotel accommodations for the duration of the conference for all of its clients.
Alabanza CEO Tom Cunningham will open the conference by discussing the direction of the industry, including the most critical issues and trends impacting the businesses of web hosting providers. In addition, representatives from Alabanza partners such as Dell Inc., a premier provider of products and services required for customers worldwide to build their information technology and Internet infrastructures, and GeoTrust Inc., a leader in identity solutions for e-business and the world’s second largest issuer of SSL certificates for web security, will participate in and speak at select events. A tour of Alabanza’s offices and server room, and evenings filled with fun social events, will round out the conference activities. Alabanza believes the event will mark the industry’s first conference ever held exclusively for users by a web hosting wholesaler provider.
“This conference offers a rare opportunity for our hosting clients to learn about the critical tools, technologies, strategies and information they need to improve their bottom line,” says Eric Rice, Alabanza’s Vice President of Marketing. “We look forward to meeting face-to-face with our customers to help each of them chart the proper course for their individual business.”
