Itâ€™s the final countdown to Xero Roadshow Asia 2018! Weâ€™re all ready to welcome more than a thousand accounting and bookkeeping leaders across Asia to discover the latest technological developments in the industry. To ensure you make the most out of Xero Roadshow Asia this year, make sure you do the following:
Document your roadshow objectives
Youâ€™ll be taking a valuable day out of your business to attend Xero Roadshow Asia â€“ make it count! Whether you are looking to get introduced to the world of cloud accounting, hear success stories from your industry peers, learn the latest in Xero products, or discover the best in accounting technology â€“ thereâ€™s something for you this Xero Roadshow.
Whatever your objectives, keep them on top of mind or even jot them down ahead of the roadshow. Match them with your business objectives for 2019. Communicate them to your account manager and ensure you connect with the right people during the roadshow to help you meet them!
Bring everyone from your team
So, youâ€™ve gotten yourself a ticket for Xero Roadshow Asia 2018. How many more from your team are attending? Have you got them a ticket too? Many of our accounting and bookkeeping partners bring their entire team to every Xero Roadshow because itâ€™s one of the best ways to get everyone aligned on the journey to online accounting and embracing new ways of working in the new year. Spots are filling fast, so be sure to send this on to your team!
Remember your business cards
Nothing is more frustrating than showing up to a room full of people and have your pockets run empty of business cards! Be sure to stock up on your business card inventory, and prepare to meet more than a thousand like-minded accountants and bookkeepers who form a part of the beautiful Xero mission. Also look for handy mobile apps that help you scan business cards quickly so you can follow up after the event. CamCard is a popular one (and the free version is great!). Evernote does the same, and the premium version further sends a follow-up email to the person whose card youâ€™ve just scanned. Voila automation!
Set up your social media accounts
Prefer to go green? Paperless? This oneâ€™s for you! Set up your social media accounts ahead of the roadshow so you can instantly connect online with the people you meet. Itâ€™s the easiest way to stay in touch!
LinkedIn is an obvious one for professional business connections. Twitter is an important one so you never miss out on live happenings with the #xeroroadshow hashtag. Now go on and send us a tweet â€“ weâ€™ll be watching!
Know your Xero account manager and meet the Xero team
Do you know your Xero account manager? For many of our partners around Asia, Xero Roadshow is the opportunity for them to finally meet face-to-face with their account manager and the rest of the Xero team. While we love technology, it can never beat an in-person interaction! Roadshows can get very busy, so be sure to connect with your account manager in advance and arrange a time and place to meet.
