After exhibiting at Xerocon London in July and then Xerocon New Orleans in August - our next stop was Sydney! Chaser has integrated with the Xero cloud accounting platform since we launched in 2014 - so the Xero community is close to our hearts.

Over 3,000 attendees were registered for this year's Sydney event- one of the largest to date. The two-day event provided keynote speakers across multiple stages, updates on the latest industry trends, and talks from Xero's CEO Steve Vamos. See highlights from the two-day event below.
