The world’s most beautiful and innovative accounting conference is here again – Xerocon Brisbane takes place on 5 and 6 September 2018 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Brisbane will play host to more than 3,000 accountants and bookkeepers all around Asia Pacific to participate in two full days of learning from world-class speakers, an exhibition floor of more than 75 Xero integrated apps and strategic partners, and endless networking opportunities all around the Xero community. Xerocon is a long flight away for many, and a commitment in time and money. Yet our Asia Xero partners will tell you it is worth every mile! Just what is the Xerocon magic? We find out:
Navigate your way through the Xero ecosystem
“The accounting profession is at the cusp of transformation. Accountants must innovate in order to remain relevant and competitive. We rely on Xero and its ecosystem of cloud partners to help us offer value-added services to our clients, such as advisory which is made possible with access to real-time financial information. Xerocon will be a valuable platform to learn from successful Xero partners on how they service their clients using Xero, and also to explore the entire cloud ecosystem.”
– Mahathir Mahzan of Mahzan Sulaiman PLT (Malaysia)
Learn and foster opportunities with the best of breed
“Xerocon will provide a fantastic opportunity for us to learn about the latest technologies and updates in the Xero ecosystem – we are especially looking forward to meeting some of the app providers that integrate with Xero, as well as other Xero advisors around the world to foster collaboration, and hear their success stories in the cloud.”
– Tai Ming Ming of Cheng & Co (Malaysia)
Think global, not local
“The wealth of knowledge and education we derive from Xerocon is the true reason for investing in the trip. We can’t wait to connect and learn from other Xero partners who have more far experience in Xero than we do. This helps us stay competitive not only in the Philippines but also on a global level. We also get to connect with accountants and bookkeepers from other countries that may need support in the Philippines.
– Mark Virgil Lofranco of MTL Cebu Business Outsourcing Solution (Philippines)
Hear from the Xero partners who never miss a Xerocon:
Year after year, some partners make the trip to Xerocon without fail. Here’s what they have to say:
“This will be my second Xerocon and I’m bringing two of my staff members with me. Anyone should attend just to feel the atmosphere, fun, passion and energy in the Xero community! Xerocon to us is great food and drinks, song and laughter, and finally inspiration for new business ideas.”
– Gooi Chi Yih of CFO Accounts & Services (Singapore)
“I attended Xerocon Melbourne 2017 and it’s really opened up my mind and given me new perspectives. I would love to experience this amazing event again.”
– Darren Yeo of D Next Stop (Singapore)
“Xerocon invites a myriad of speakers and experts in various industries, and topics range from artificial intelligence to success stories of other cloud accountants. They really help open up your mind and bring you up to speed on the latest technologies, industry and even how to grow my practice.”
– Elaine Lim of Agere Accounting & Advisory (Singapore)
“The (accounting) industry is evolving very quickly and we can’t always predict what developments lie ahead. Xerocon is an opportunity to be open-minded, and speak to other Xero advisors and partners to equip ourselves for whatever the future holds.”
– Matthew Li of Nova (Hong Kong)
“Xerocon Brisbane will be my third Xerocon! I love being part of the Xero community and I always look forward to meeting up with friends that I have made at previous Xerocon gatherings. I’ve learnt to expect the unexpected at Xerocon – I’ve been able to gain a great deal of knowledge, experience, and connections that have resulted in may successful partnerships and new clients for my Bali-based practice, Bukubuku.”
