Over 1,000 accountants, bookkeepers and finance professionals will come together in Toronto for two days of networking, education, and interaction with over 75 companies showcasing the latest in tech and software, propelling professionals into 2023.

“Accountex has become a who’s who of the accounting profession and its surrounding industries. It is said that two days of Accountex is the equivalent of 6 months of networking any other way, and my experience bears that out,” Martin Bissett – Keynote Speaker, Accountex Canada.

Accountex Canada will offer 34 sessions and an opportunity for attendees to earn up to 8 CPE/CPD credits. The conference’s broad spectrum of topics and speakers will provide attendees with the knowledge and tools to excel in their careers and businesses. Day one will feature keynote speaker Martin Bissett —President of Bissett Group and keynote speaker to over 40 nations worldwide— will share his insights in two sessions, Pricing Strategies and Building Your Pipeline. On day two, keynote speaker Amber Mac —Innovation Speaker | Co-Host, The Feed on SiriusXM | President, AmberMac Media, Inc. — will guide participants through her 2023 (Mostly Business) Survival Guide session. 

Other industry leaders giving attendees practice-based education will feature Ryan Lazanis (Future Firm), Rachel Fisch (Fisch Books), Steven Van Alstine (National Payroll Institute), Greg Powell (ACCA) and Julie Ruben Rodney (MaxPeople), to mention a few. 

“It’s been overwhelming the interest we’ve received in the show. There is a real need and desire for an independent in-person conference and trade show in Canada that serves the entire community at large”, says Steve Dempsey, General Manager of Diversified Communications Canada, Accountex organizers.

Delegates will meet the teams face-to-face behind Founding Partners Xero, Intuit-Quickbooks, Sage/Auto Entry, and ACCA, as well as other prominent leaders such as Karbon, ApprovalMax, Dext, Doc-it/IRIS, INAA group, a2x, Dataswitcher, Freshbooks, Pure Booking, Successful Bookkeeper, XU Magazine, Financly, and beeye. In addition, with national strategic partners like the National Payroll Institute and the Certified Professional Bookkeepers of Canada, payroll professionals bookkeepers and CPAs can earn up to 8 CPD credits. 

“I am looking forward to this fresh, new event happening in Toronto! Relevant topics, actionable tips, and interesting speakers at a great venue,” Kellie Parks, CPB, Cloud Process Creator, Calm Waters and speaker at Accountex Canada.

Accountex Canada will also feature Career and Flash Meeting Zones, hosting live demonstrations on both days tailored for the Canadian audience. This event is for all levels within the accounting and finance industry. In addition, a Networking Reception on day one will allow everyone to relax, digest and catch up with their peers to celebrate this coming together. 

“I find it a hugely valuable time to network with suppliers and peers. There is nothing like grabbing a coffee with your account manager or another accountant whom you usually network with online. For me, I am also always looking for new apps, software solutions or just a better way of doing things, so roaming the halls to see who is exhibiting is fabulous. Sometimes you can come across a solution that you looked at before but was not right then – but is now! It is a great time to speak to someone in real person rather than relying on online chat,” shared Emma Fox, Founder of Fresh Financials, in an interview with XU Magazine at Accountex London. 

Accountex Canada will take place on November 30 and December 1, 2022, in Toronto, Ontario, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building.
