Charlotte to Host Thousands of ACN Independent Representatives at Upcoming Event


ACN Independent Representatives from across the world will be visiting Charlotte for the upcoming International Training Event held September 10-12, 2010. Time Warner Cable Arena and several Charlotte hotels will be packed with business professionals – many of whom will be visiting Charlotte for the first time.

ACN provides individuals with a home-based business opportunity to offer essential communications and entertainment services to residential and business customers. The company is looking forward to having its International Training Event in its own backyard. The event will be the second time ACN has hosted one of its quarterly events in Charlotte.

“The decision to locate our Global World Headquarters here wasn’t by accident,” ACN President and Co-Founder Greg Provenzano said. “We love having our representatives visit us to see the friendly community in which we live and work, as well as everything the city of Charlotte has to offer.”

ACN is not just bringing its representatives to Charlotte. The event’s guest speaker will be multi-billionaire Donald J. Trump, as he has personally endorsed ACN since 2006. ACN even appeared on his primetime reality show, The Celebrity Apprentice 2, in March 2009.

Publisher of SUCCESS magazine Darren Hardy will also be featured at the event. As a leader in the personal development industry, Hardy encourages others to nurture themselves, as well as their businesses.

In addition to filling hotels and patronizing businesses, ACN Independent Representatives will leave a more lasting mark on Charlotte during the event weekend. At every International Training Event, ACN collects contributions from thousands of generous representatives and employees for Ronald McDonald House Charities. The company then matches the donations dollar for dollar. ACN has already donated $2 million for the construction of a Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte. The house, which is under construction, is slated to open in 2011 and will serve the families of children being treated at Levine Children’s Hospital and Presbyterian Healthcare’s Hemby Children’s Hospital.

“We’re so fortunate to have ACN choose the Charlotte region – their own company home base – for their conference.” said Mike Butts, executive director of Visit Charlotte. “Not only do they bring incredible quality and value to our community in bringing what can be over $13.8 million to our economy, but they give back to our charitable organizations. They are exemplary community partners and we’re thrilled to be working with them.”
