Expensify, a payments app that helps individuals and businesses worldwide simplify financial management for expenses, corporate credit cards and invoices, today announced the re-launch of ExpensiCon, May 18-22, 2023, in Puglia, Italy. An exclusive group of world-class accountants and fintech titans will be invited to the festival for five days of community building, opinion leadership, networking, and panel discussions.
Previous ExpensiCons in Bora Bora and Maui have featured attendees from PwC, Deloitte, BDO, CLA, Baker Tilly and EisnerAmper, and fireside chats with Travis Kalanick of Uber, Zach Nelson of NetSuite and Rod Drury of Xero.
“At ExpensiCon, we’re sharing our motto ‘Live Rich, Have Fun, and Save The World’ (‘Live Rich, Have Fun, and Save The World’) with our top industry partners and thought leaders to build a new kind of community-focused squarely on the future,” said David Barrett, founder and CEO of Expensify. “And what better place to do that than at a luxurious five-star resort, away from the distractions of daily life? It’s the ideal environment to build productive relationships with brilliant individuals and focus on solving the industry’s most pressing problems.”
The event will include a mix of keynotes, panel discussions, fireside chats, 1:1 networking opportunities and strategy sessions, and VIP events. In addition, attendees and their guests will also experience the beauty of Puglia on select and partnership-building excursions through the region that includes pasta making, wine tasting and yacht tours.
Clayton Oates, founder and chief solutions officer of QA Business and a past ExpensiCon attendee, says, “What I liked most about ExpensiCon is that Expensify threw out the usual concepts for events. Rather than hosting a large-scale, content-heavy event focused on short-term impact in a boring convention centre, they focused on building a foundation for collaboration within and beyond the accounting industry. Expensify’s long-term view, balanced plan, and ability to create magical experiences in the world’s most impressive venues ensure that attendees get the most out of the event. ExpensiCon is an event not to be missed.”
