Xerocon 2017. An accounting event to remember.

Xerocon London was an accounting event to remember. It came and it went with a blast... And boy did we have fun

From meeting amazing connections and new friends to being amongst innovative companies and accounting industry experts, to a wild party and meeting Xero founder, Rod Drury, we think it’s safe to say that we definitely want to attend Xerocon 2018!

Instead of telling you how unique it was, we thought we could show you with a wee collection of tweets we captured at Xerocon, starting with a little vid we made.

We started off the Xerocon journey by putting our love of Xero's accounting software into words.

And exploring the ways in which our integration with Xero was stellar.

Day 1: Jumping right into it. After our recent Xero partnership, we couldn’t wait to hit the exhibition floor to chat to everyone about the amazing benefits of our real-time integration with Xero.

We brought some prickly friends along...

...And they made friends.

Some people loved them…

...And some even replanted them.

We got really into the theme of prickly expenses, and gained valuable insight from accountants’ and business’ feedback of our product and the problem we’re solving.

We also made new friends...

...Who we hung out with a lot...

...They even loved the cactuses too.

The food was incredible and kept us well fuelled throughout the two days.

The merch was spot on (our bags were a huge hit!)

And the talks were inspiring...

...But we’d have to say a big highlight was when we met Xero Founder Rod Drury. It was one thing to attend a conference hosted by Xero, but another to meet the man behind the software.

We’d heard the Xerocon parties were amazing and didn’t fully know what to expect. Needless to say, it blew any accounting party out of the water. They put on an absolute show and it was such a treat.

Things even got a little crazy. To note: photobooths are always a good idea.

The team got some well deserved grub.. did we mention, the food was amazing!?

At the end of the first day, the team was still looking bright eyed and fresh.

Day 2: Refreshed. The team, but most importantly, our stock of cactus.

Colin was super pumped to be back for another day of festivities.

Xerocon 2017 was an absolute success - we came away with a whole lot of contacts, validation for the work we have done, new ideas for our future features and an overall great experience. Huge to our team for all of their hard work to make this a success and many thanks to Xero for hosting a great exhibition. Until next year!
