RingCentral’s VAR Team joined over 3,000 franchise professionals from many of the most iconic franchise brands at the IFA Annual Convention at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas last week. RingCentral networked with current and prospective customers, attended the Taste of Franchising reception, co-hosted the Aftertaste Party, attended Condoleezza Rice’s keynote speech, and of course met Elvis.
It was a great President’s weekend to spend networking in Vegas, and we enjoyed sharing the benefits of our franchise program with show attendees. Learn more about our franchise program.
Current franchise customers stopped by to pick up some orange RingCentral phones.
We got creative with our tchotchkes, here is our neighboring exhibitor showing off his juggling skills with RingCentral megaphones
We couldn’t miss the conference Keynote speech. Former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice took the stage and talked about returning confidence and optimism to the United States by growing the economy and addressing unemployment. She shared what she considers the great national myth, “It doesn’t matter where you came from, it matters where you’re going.”
She explained that creativity, innovation and human potential are the foundation of success in the United States. When asked about her current role as a Stanford Professor, she described her passion for teaching and how much she enjoys the inspiration and creativity of Silicon Valley, and loves how everyday someone is creating something new in Silicon Valley.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a tradeshow in Las Vegas without an Elvis sighting.
RingCentral’s next stop is Las Vegas . . . again! We’re exhibiting at Channel Partners Conference & Expo at the Venetian & Sands Expo, February 27 – March 1. Be sure to stop by our booth #4028 – all current customers and active partners will receive a RingCentral t-shirt.
