PlanetOne Readies Gala Year-End Event

2014 Awards and Recognition for Exceptional Performance

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–September 8, 2014–Arizona-based master agency PlanetOne Communications has announced plans to bring its agents and suppliers together for a landmark year-end event, Nov. 4 and 5 in Scottsdale that promises to be the biggest and best in the company’s 22 year history.

The last stop on the company’s 2014 Telecom Tour, the celebration is coming back by popular demand to the Talking Stick Resort & Casino and it’s Troon Golf Club. Agents can win their way to the event.

On tap is a full slate of fun, education, inspiration and networking with execs from the industry’s top providers. This year’s opening reception includes an outing to TopGolf, a new twist on the game with bright neon lights, thumping music and a smoking hot bar scene. Think bowling, darts and disco. It’s been featured on national TV and is the talk of the golfing world, a competitive game for all levels with a private roof deck party just for PlanetOne’s guests.

The centerpiece of the event is a keynote presentation with Anthony Robles, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Inductee and winner of the “Jimmy V” ESPY Award for Perseverance. Robles won the 2010-11 NCAA individual wrestling championship in the 125-pound weight class, despite being born with only one leg.

PlanetOne founder and CEO Ted Schuman expects the 2014 event turnout to reflect another year of record growth and key milestones for the company and its partners. Over the last nine months, PlanetOne has received a number of accolades, forged new alliances and made several core investments to enhance the partner experience. These include:

Being named one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine for the fourth year in a row

Earning recognition as a top performing partner for ACC, EarthLink, Level 3, MegaPath, PGi, Telesphere, inContact, Masergy, Windstream and XO

Expanding its partner support team to reflect increasing opportunities at the upper end of the market in cloud services

Opening an office in Southern California (Irvine) in August 2014 to support its explosive growth

Aligning with T-Mobile USA to help pioneer the first wireless channel program to offer true recurring commissions to sales partners

Developing and debuting the new PlanetOne Telecom Partner Toolbox which has become an invaluable source of sales materials and technology information for partners to use with their customers
“I could not be more excited to highlight the strength of our channel and the development of our business over the course of this past year,” said PlanetOne founder and CEO Ted Schuman. “We have had an incredible year, and that’s thanks to our seasoned staff and our amazing sales partners, who are an extraordinary and talented group of people that I’m honored to work with.”

“We have invested heavily in our partners, our staff and expanded our footprint, arming our partners with the right solutions, education and support tools,” added Lauren Shapiro, president of PlanetOne. “We’re building on our partners’ success, and will continue to generate greater momentum as the horizon for integrated and managed communications solutions continues to grow larger and more full of promise.”
