The Ultimate Event for Small Business Success Brings Together 3,000 Entrepreneurs from Around the Globe to Learn, Network and Grow

CHANDLER, Ariz., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Infusionsoft, creator of the leading sales and marketing software for small businesses, today kicks off its annual small business conference, ICON14. The ultimate event for small business success, ICON brings together small businesses that are growing their sales, getting organized, saving time and living the lives they want. It's a gathering of optimistic, energetic entrepreneurs who are celebrating their successes and sharing strategies to overcome challenges.

Clate Mask, CEO and co-founder of Infusionsoft, says, "Most entrepreneurs, including myself, are driven by passion. We may not express it in the same way, but we are united in that passion, regardless of our craft, customer, country or cause. ICON was created to give entrepreneurs an opportunity to step away from the day-to-day demands of running a business and reflect upon why the business was first started. There is an incredible energy that emanates throughout the conference. We are excited for day one of ICON14 to begin and encourage attendees to talk to those around them and share their valuable insights and ideas."
