Lanyon Announces Speaker Lineup for Lanyon Live 2015

Customer Conference to Feature Shark Tank's Lori Greiner as Well as Leaders From Across the Business World

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/13/15 -- Lanyon, a leader in corporate meetings, events and travel software, announced its speaker lineup for the company's annual customer conference. Entitled "Lanyon Live," the conference will feature a diverse speaker list of renowned leaders from across the business world as well as the meetings, events and travel industry. With the theme of "Better Together," Lanyon Live will take place at The Fairmont Dallas October 26 to 28, 2015.

General session speakers include:

Keynote: Lori Greiner, from ABC's "Shark Tank" and QVC. Lori is a star shark on the hit entrepreneurial ABC business show "Shark Tank," where she and other business leaders invest in companies and help turn dreams into reality. At Lanyon Live, she'll be joining us to share her inspiring story -- along with the strategies that have led her and so many others to achieve their goals and dreams of success.

Industry Keynote: Elizabeth Pinkham, Salesforce. Ms. Pinkham is Senior Vice President of Strategic Events and Executive Briefing Centers at Salesforce, where she has been leading the company's event marketing strategy since 2000. Ms. Pinkham oversees a wide range of brand and event experiences worldwide, ranging from launches and sports and entertainment marketing, executive briefing centers, Salesforce's World Tours and signature events that are held on a global scale. Notably, Pinkham has spearheaded the company's annual Dreamforce event in San Francisco since its inception in 2003; this year, the event drew 170,000 registered attendees, 11 million online viewers and a cruise ship dubbed the Dreamboat. During her tenure, Dreamforce has become an event that has evolved the way many think about B2B conferences. Ms. Pinkham will take part in a "fireside chat" with Lanyon CMO Anthony Miller on what it takes to grow your events, how to best utilize event technology, what she's learned through her experiences of creating Dreamforce, and tips for fellow-event planners on working together with business partners at the highest levels to achieve successful events.

"Lanyon Live will be the first customer conference we'll host as the new Lanyon. We are excited to have so many industry leaders and customers coming together to discuss key trends and share best practices," said David Bonnette, CEO of Lanyon. "The event theme of 'Better Together' is an extension of our core belief that Lanyon is better now that we have brought together leading software solutions for our customers. Our industry is better when we all work together, and fundamentally, business is better when people get together. Lanyon Live is the perfect opportunity for us to do what we do best -- bring people together."

Joining Ms. Pinkham and Ms. Greiner will be speakers from Johnson & Johnson, Hilton, Microsoft, Glaxo Smith Klein, Cisco, IHG, Eastwick, and an industry association panel -- with the heads of MPI, GBTA, PCMA, and Meetings Mean Business. The conference will be an opportunity for attendees to learn about current and future trends, how professionals can work together to further the meetings, events and travel industry, and also share best practices with businesses and hotels of all sizes on how to best engage with their customers.

"We are proud to power the meetings, events and travel for thousands of businesses, including some of the world's best known brands. This will be a forum for them to come together and share their success stories," continued Bonnette. "It has been a busy year for us at Lanyon, and I'm looking forward to sharing insights into all that we have achieved, as well as a glimpse into what I believe is the most important and exciting roadmap in our history."
