Xerocon we’re coming for you! We’re back and going Beyond Expenses

It’s our third Xerocon and it’s already lining up to be our best yet. A lot has happened since last year, with huge growth in businesses and accountants using Expend and our team has grown quite a lot too. This year we are going beyond expenses by providing all the tools Xero users need to manage all their spending and expense management in one place. So while we could reminisce over years gone by, we decided instead to ask some of the newer members of our team why they’re excited to go to Xerocon for the first time. 


Kayley Hunter, Head of Partnerships

Since I started in September, I’ve spoken to so many people at Xero as well as their app partners and current Expend accounting partners to gain feedback on what they need from a spending and expense management platform to support their clients. I’m very excited to meet them face to face and also get feedback on our constantly improving accountant partner programme that’s now even more focused on giving value and solving the expenses problem across the UK.  Add Kayley on LinkedIn

Sanjay Malkani, Business Development Manager

When I started, I was told about an event called Xerocon, I can’t believe how quickly it has come around and the closer it has got, the more I’ve learnt about how big the Xero community is and how passionate their users are. Over the last few months I’ve proudly shown off our Xero Integration to hundreds of people and the feedback has always been very positive. I’m excited to speak to businesses and accountants about our latest features and learn more about the problems they are facing with their current tools. Add Sanjay on LinkedIn

James Watson, Business Development Manager

Just like Sanjay, I didn’t realise the size and importance of Xerocon until I started to speak with accountants.  While I’ve heard some amazing things about the party on Wednesday night, I’m actually more excited to soak it all in and start to put faces to names. I’ve spoken to a lot of Xero accountants over the last few months but you can’t beat meeting people in person and that’s while I love events like these. Add James on LinkedIn 

Henry George, Technical Lead

Having joined only two weeks ago, my plan is simple, I’m going to Xercon to take in as much as possible. I want to learn as much as I can over both days and understand first hand why accountants and businesses are so passionate about Xero and their app partners. I’m especially excited to be speaking to Xero users on the Expend stand, as I will be able to feedback ideas to our development team and help to shape our roadmap for the coming year.
