Accountex 2014 is the biggest accounting conference in the UK, drawing financial and finance software related minds en-masse. Held at the Excel centre in the Royal Docklands, New Ham. This year was the largest yet and if the last few years attendees numbers are anything to go by it just keeps getting bigger, with this year drawing approx. 4000 attendees over the 2-day event.
This is the first time Deputy has participated in Accountex and we did so as a Xero Add-on, as part of their #xerovillage. Located in a central spot inside the hall the #xerovillage consisted of Xero and all the wonderful Add-ons that make up this great integrated community. Lucky for us we were nicely positioned on the corridor so Deputy not only got the attention of those wishing to learn more about Xero and it’s Add-on community but those passing by.
It was a busy two days but a very rewarding experience, we received great feedback on our world leading people management software throughout the two days. The stand out comment we heard was – “You are the best Add-on we have seen here today, this is great software”.
Jake and I really enjoyed meeting and discussing the product with such cloud embracing enthusiasts and it is with much excitement that we look forward to partnering with the UK accountant firms and cloud solution providers that we met.
Don’t forget to also take a moment and look at all of the other great Xero Add-ons that made up our (#xerovillage) as there are many gems amongst us all intent on helping businesses get more bang for there buck and to streamline your business procedures. After all it’s about working smarter not harder!
I’d like to take a moment to thank the Xero team for co-ordinating such a great event (#xerovillage) inside an event (#accountex), as they really outdid themselves in making everyone feel welcome and I am not just referring to the Add-ons. With freebies such as mini ice-creams, drinks and the chance to win a Mac Book Air the vibe was upbeat and engaging. So well done Sharon (@Shaz-CM), Nina (@MsNeensMM) and the rest of the marketing and Xero team on a truly great event.
Until next time it is farewell in person and hello to an abundance of new partnerships and customer relationships.
