Arkadin to Host TeleSpan's Annual Teleconferencing Industry Predictions

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -01/10/12)- Arkadin, a leading global provider of collaboration solutions and TeleSpan Publishing Corporation -- -- today announced that Arkadin will host the TeleSpan Publishing Corporation web conference on Friday, January 20, 2012 at 1:00 PM EST to deliver TeleSpan's 2012 predictions for the conferencing industry.

The web conference event will occur prior to their release in the annual Predictions Edition of Electronic TeleSpan the industry's foremost newsletter. Predictions will be made by Elliot M. Gold, President of TeleSpan, and will cover trends in voice, video, and web conferencing, as well as TeleSpan's pick of companies that will "hit the wall" or be picked up in consolidations in the next 24-36 months.

Gold has had unparalleled accuracy in making predictions. Since 1996, Gold has made 160 predictions (10 each year) with a running accuracy score of 70% (112 accurate predictions out of 160). This achievement gives him perhaps the highest batting average in the industry (other analyst groups and Wall Street firms typically have accuracies well below 50%). As a result, many analysts on Wall Street have considered TeleSpan "the authoritative source in teleconferencing" for more than a quarter of a century.

Gold will also review his predictions from 2011, giving them a thumbs-up or down. Attendees to the web conference will be invited to raise questions about TeleSpan's forecasts as well as other questions they have about the conferencing market overall.

Attendance to the event will be limited, but an archived version will be available after January 20, 2012.
