EchoStar Communications Corp. will hold its 2005 Team Summit at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn., April 28-May 1.

“Mission: DISH,” the satellite-TV-retailer conference, will feature appearances by Reba McEntire, the Improv All-Stars, Rascal Flatts and motivational speaker Jeffrey Gitomer.

In addition, EchoStar CEO Charles Ergen will share his vision of satellite TV's future.
