Twice a year AA-ISP, holds exclusive Retreats for Inside/Digital Sales leaders to learn, share, and network with each other in a relaxed and informal setting.

Who Should Attend?

Our Retreats are limited to practitioners who have leadership responsibility over Sales or a related functional area. Any senior leader from Manager to Executive looking to improve their efficiency, increase ROI, and streamline processes are encouraged to attend.

In order to maintain the integrity of the Retreat as a practitioner-based event, individuals who represent vendors, consulting firms, recruiters or anyone who sells and/or markets into the Inside/Digital Sales community are respectfully asked not to register.
