EchoStar Summit a Sellout

5/10/2004 6:59 AM Eastern

Some 2,200 Dish Network retailers from across the United States will congregate in Dallas May 20-22 for EchoStar Communications Corp.’s 2004 Team Summit.

Highlights of the sold-out conference will include appearances by Jay Leno, Duke head basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and Grammy Award-winning country-music star Vince Gill.

The keynote speaker for the confab -- to be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas -- will be Sirius Satellite Radio CEO Joseph P. Clayton.

“Our retailers are the key component to establishing Dish Network's leadership position in the past few years as the fastest-growing pay television service,” EchoStar cofounder and executive vice president Jim DeFranco said in a prepared statement. “As satellite-TV experts in hometowns across America, they play an enormous role in contributing to our past and future success.”
