You’d think that any events Quickbooks hosts would be heavily focused on accounting, right? Wrong. The Quickbooks Connect conference, running from November 5-7, 2018 in sunny San Jose, hopes to accomplish two things: helping entrepreneurs grow their business with new, innovative ideas, and connecting those entrepreneurs for meaningful networking interactions.
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we couldn’t be more excited to see what Quickbooks Connect 2018 has in store. Here’s just a smattering of what attendees can expect:
- Workshops and breakout sessions with tactics that attendees can take home and apply to their business ASAP. Of course, accounting will be on the docket, and other topics include marketing, product and service pricing, and productivity.
- Keynote presentations from inspiring speakers who share their war stories of entrepreneurship - both successes and failures. Past speakers include Tyra Banks, Oprah Winfrey, Malcolm Gladwell, and Michael Phelps.
- Opportunities to connect with peers, industry leaders, and even prospective clients throughout the conference.
- The latest in tech trends to support the needs of a wide variety of business needs (like invoicing!). Product demos will be available at many vendor booths.
If that wasn’t enough inspiration, have a look at last year’s recap video to see just how jazzed attendees were after attending past Quickbooks Connect conferences.
In addition, there’s a section of the conference just for accounting professionals. It includes one dedicated day focused on accounting-specific workshops, the opportunity to earn CPE credits, and an accounting-only keynote. So attendees get the best of both worlds - fuel for business growth AND accounting best practices.
