Accountex back for second year running

Although it's only six months since the inaugural Accountex conference and exhibition last year, the next one is just around the corner.

Accountex is a great event to get you up to speed on what’s new, what’s changing, what’s working and what isn’t. Aimed at accountants in practice and business, the organisers tell us that last year’s event was very successful but that they have responded to feedback and moved the timing to a more appropriate month. They have also started planning for 2014!

Accountex 2013 takes place at London's ExCel centre on 6-7 June and tickets booked in advance are free of charge, giving you access to more than 100 exhibitors and dozens of CPD training opportunities. Not least of these are the sessions being presented by our own John Stokdyk and Mark Lee.

Many other friends of AccountingWEB are also speaking at Accountex, including...

someone not exhibiting wants me to suss out the opposition and The Business Start Up show is on at the same time.  Think I spent 2 hours in Accountex last year and 4 in the Start Up bit next door, main benefit being it's got lots of normal people and most of the hype seems constructive.

Shame John S is talking in the S*** theatre, I won't have any garlic with me so will miss it.

Yes, I know, but it's what happens when you spend decades as an accountant, you just don't know how to enjoy yorself anymore.....with thousands of other accountants :-(

Date of the conference

Dear Sir/Madam,

Could you explain why you choose this date? ACCA students are completing their exams at this time around and maybe some of us would have like to attend the conference.

Did you not take this into account when you planned the seminar?

We were not told about ACCA holding their exams at the same venue on the same days until a few weeks ago. However we would not of been able to change the date as we hold the show at the same time as The Business Show.

You are welcome to come and visit Accountex before or after your exams. It is taking place directly next door in the next hall.

Kind regards

Scott Hider - Accountex Event Director.

Accountex was a great success this year. With an extra 1000 accountants through the door compared to last year!!! There were 3760 delegates attending over the two days which is fantastic.

OCRex was exhibiting there for the second year. Our team performed over 120 demonstrations of AutoRec and signed up lots of new customers. We have already booked our place for 2014.

Well done to the organisers Prysm Group. Looking forward to next year already.

Hi Paul,

Apologies my screen froze as I was entering a comment. The two comments then were published. I can't seem to delete one of the comments. I have emailed accounting web to see how I can delete one of my comments. Obviously looks terrible that I have said the same thing twice.
