Accountex 2016 on verge of selling out
Accountex – The National Accountancy Exhibition & Conference, taking place at ExCeL London next month, on 11-12 May, is set to sell out to exhibitors within the next few days for the fifth year in a row.
If a trade show is an indication of the health of an industry, then the Accountancy profession is in great shape. The event attracted over 5,000 accountants and finance professionals in 2015, and sold out weeks before the doors opened. Subsequent demand for 2016 led the organisers to expand the floorplan by a further 20%. This too is now on the verge of selling out, with five weeks still to go.
Microsoft UK, SAGE UK, Exact, Thomson Reuters, Taxcalc, Intuit QuickBooks, Xero, Tolley, Aviva, Reckon UK, DocuSoft, ACCA, Wolters Kluwer, FreeAgent, Expensify, Catax Solutions, Abbey Tax and Consultancy Services, and CIMA are among the 200 exhibitors keen to showcase their hottest new products and services to the profession at the 2016 event; which will host over 185 CPD accredited seminars, panel sessions, interactive workshops, and unrivalled networking opportunities.
Accountex event director Tom King, said: "The accounting profession is one of the fastest changing industries in the UK and, having worked within this market for nearly five years, I can say that there has never been so much opportunity to work with accountants and their clients.
“Cloud technology has brought with it a new way for Accountants to work; more demanding clients, who expect more for less and in less time than ever before. Accountex has been working with thought leaders to support and assist the profession during these changes. Accountants have always advised businesses, but recently the advisory role is almost taking over from the accounting itself and, as such, more and more service providers are looking to showcase their products or services to accountants, so they can then tell their clients about it.
“If you have a product or service aimed at accountants, or you offer a business service, you need to join us at Accountex – the UK’s leading event for accountants and finance professionals,” he says.
With visitor pre-registrations tracking ahead, Accountex is set to attract an even bigger audience for 2016. Tickets to the event are free and can be booked at www.accountex.co.uk.
