We’re numbers people here at Xero. And we know you – our partner community – are too. So to celebrate the return of Xerocon Sydney this September, we’ve gone and rounded up some stats to give you a taste of what to expect. Because if our calculations are correct, there are 1,161 reasons (and counting) to get excited about this unmissable event for cloud accounting leaders.

12 keynote sessions

Across two days and 12 keynote sessions, you’ll hear and learn from all kinds of inspiring and engaging presenters. This includes Xero’s executive leaders – from Steve Vamos (CEO) and Rachael Powell (Chief Customer Officer) to Anna Curzon (Chief Product Officer) and Mark Rees (Chief Technology Officer) – on topics like our vision for the future.

We’ve also wrangled some impressive star power in this year’s guest keynotes. So far, we have Adam Goodes – a legendary footballer, social justice advocate, and former Australian of the Year (2019) – and Kemi Nekvapile – an acclaimed executive coach, author and speaker. Kemi and Adam’s words of wisdom will undoubtedly move and inspire you, as they have audiences around the world.

Keep an eye on our website as we have more exciting keynote announcements to come.

70+ app exhibitors

More than ever, we know that digital tools play an essential role in the world of advisory. This is why we love bringing our app ecosystem and partner community together. At Xerocon Sydney, you’ll be spoilt for choice with more than 70 app partners to chat with and learn from. They’re there to showcase their offerings and help you find the right tech for your practice.

One indoor soccer pitch

Xerocon is famous for its wild and wonderful activities. In previous years, we’ve had karaoke rooms, bumper cars, ball pits, and virtual reality games (when we say this isn’t your average conference, we mean it). And this year, to celebrate our partnership with FIFA Women’s Football, we’re bringing a Xero-fied indoor soccer pitch to Sydney’s ICC. You’ll even have the chance to play ball with one of FIFA’s star players. Game on!

1,000+ hours of content

Alongside our keynotes, we have a bunch of breakout sessions planned, all of which are packed with practical takeaways and food for thought. Through panels and presentations, you’ll have the chance to hear from your peers and industry experts on all kinds of topics, from how to make your practice more sustainable to winning the war on talent. Keep your eyes peeled as we’ll be sharing a full agenda within the next few weeks.

One massive wrap party (with 23 Luna Park attractions)

As any Xerocon veteran will tell you, our wrap parties are legendary – and 2022 will be no exception. After the turbulence of recent years, we can all agree that almost every advisor has earned the right to let their hair down and have some fun. So, we’ve gone and hired out one of the best places to let loose – Sydney’s iconic Luna Park!

With a breathtaking view of the Harbour and exclusive access to countless rides (not to mention no lines), this year’s Xerocon party will be one for the ages. Make sure you nab your ticket before the event sells out – this will be one not to miss!

Less than 50 days to go

Xerocon is just around the corner. So what are you waiting for? As the world’s most innovative and beautiful conference for cloud accounting leaders, it’s the place to be come September. Not only will you learn about practical tools and tricks to keep your practice ahead of the curve, you’ll also form new bonds (and strengthen existing ones) to make connections for life.

Purchase your Xerocon Sydney ticket today to save up to 20 percent in our second release. But get in quick – this offer ends at 11:59pm on 31 July 2022 or until they’re sold out.
