Jan 07, 2010, 07:00 ET from Conference Plus, Inc.

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Conference Plus, Inc. (ConferencePlus(TM)), a subsidiary of Westell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WSTL) and a leading global provider of audio, web, webcasting and video conferencing services, and TeleSpan Publishing Corporation (www.telespan.com) today announced that ConferencePlus will host the TeleSpan Publishing Corporation web conference on Friday, January 15, 2010 at 1:00 PM EST to deliver TeleSpan's 2010 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 140 predictions (10 each year) with a running accuracy score of 72% (101 accurate predictions out of 140). 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 2009, 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.

Hosted by ConferencePlus, attendance to the event will be limited, but an archived version will be available after January 18, 2010.

Attendees can register for the web conference through ConferencePlus at https://www.conferenceplus.com/confcenter/PinCode/Pin_Code.aspx?100046&o=70542602486226
