Accountex 2019 is already shaping up to be the show’s biggest edition yet. The UK’s flagship event for the accounting and finance profession will return to London ExCeL on 1-2 May.
Following a record-breaking attendance of almost 8,000 visitors at last year’s show, Accountex will be taking it up a level for 2019 with 10% more floor space, giving exhibiting companies even more room to showcase their latest accounting innovations. Even with the extra floor space the show is selling fast to exhibitors, with 85% of stands already sold – the equivalent of the entire floor space at the previous show.
Now in its eighth year, Accountex is firmly established as the place to be for those looking to discover the cutting-edge of the finance world and get up-to-date with the latest trends. Over two days visitors to the show will have the opportunity to gain insights from over 250 top exhibitors and immerse themselves in accounting expertise with a programme of over 250 keynotes and seminars delivered by leading industry experts.
All the latest technology, services and solutions will be on show – covering everything from accounting software, making tax digital, technology, training, cloud, pensions, and payroll, to recruitment, business funding and government updates and more.
New exhibitors for 2019 include Travelex, Confirmation, Reed Recruitment, Alternative Business Funding, Flywire, SmartVault, Melu, Jordans, AEGIS and Clockwork IT. They join returning names like Intuit QuickBooks, TaxCalc, Wolters Kluwer, ACCA, Fujitsu, Growth Street, Taxfiler, Avalara, Senta and Global Infosys, along with IRIS, FreeAgent, ICB, ICAEW, BrightPay, FUTRLI, Compleat Software, SILVERFIN and Clearbooks who will double their presence at the show.
Zoe Lacey-Cooper, event director, says: “We’re really excited to be bringing Accountex back for what’s already shaping up to be its biggest and best year yet.
“We were thrilled by the growth we saw at last year’s show, including a 10% increase in visitors, and more exhibitors and high-profile speakers than ever before. We’re already well on track to replicate that success, with plenty of new suppliers and returning big names already lined up to exhibit for 2019.
“Accountex is a fixture in the accounting industry calendar – and for good reason. The show will bring together over 8,000 accounting and finance professionals from all over Europe, to discover the latest tools and technology on offer from all those at the forefront of this fast-moving industry – ranging from the big names to the newest emerging suppliers.
“Accounting professionals shouldn’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear from industry-leading speakers, discover 100’s of new products and services and network with their peers.”
