Xerocon Austin is fast approaching, and with three days packed with exclusive content, networking events and a long lineup of inspiring speakers, it pays to have a plan for what you want to get out of your Xerocon experience.

1. Meet the exhibitors

Allow yourself plenty of time to check out the Xerocon exhibitor space. With a bunch of great exhibitors showcasing their products and services, you don’t want to miss out on one that might be able to help you and your firm grow.

Take a look at our exhibitor list and shortlist the ones you’re keen to find out more about. You’ll have plenty of time over the course of the conference to get to know them, starting with our Welcome Reception sponsored by Google Cloud on Tuesday night from 5.30pm. This is a great chance to get to know our ecosystem partners one-on-one and have all your burning questions answered, all over a drink, some live music and a bite to eat.

Plus you’ll have morning, lunchtime and afternoon breaks to check them all out!

2. Get to PreCon

Want to become a certified advisor? Or learn more about sales, apps or automation? Then take advantage of the valuable insights that Pre-Con has to offer. Each session will run from 9am to 5pm on December 5th at the Austin Convention Center. There are 5 sessions to choose from, so take your pick!

With a range of experts leading each session it is not to be missed, and there are still tickets available!

3. Download the Xerocon app

The Xerocon app, which is available now on your app store of choice, is your single source of information on all things Xerocon. It puts the full conference agenda at your fingertips, including speaker and exhibitor lists – as well as easy access to conference maps. You’ll also have exclusive access to tools that make it easy to: build your schedule, access a personalized timeline of engagement at the event, quickly locate others at Xerocon, give feedback and more.

4. Book a time with an account manager

Xerocon is a great time for you to meet your account manager face to face, say hi, have a coffee and a good chat about how Xero can help your business grow.

Just flick your account manager an email and they’ll get back to you with their availability across the two days of Xerocon. And if you don’t know their name or email address, just send a note to sales@xero.com and we’ll point you in the right direction.

5. Stay well-fed and hydrated

This year we are offering cold-pressed juices to keep you hydrated, along with a few tasty surprises.

There’ll also be plenty of snacks, a hearty lunch each day and a tasty dinner to put you in good stead for a night of dancing at the Xero party.

6. Get social

Take the opportunity to reach out to colleagues you’ve never had the chance to meet and arrange a catchup over coffee or even check out a local Austin haunt. Join us at the end of day one for a bash on Austin’s historic Rainey Street. The quirky hotspot is lined with renovated houses turned into bungalow bars, so you know the party will be held in true Xero style. The wrap party is also not to be missed, it’s the perfect opportunity to let your hair down after a busy three days. Celebrate new friends, new learnings and a new love of Austin.

Xerocon gives you the perfect chance to network in person, but it’s also a good chance to get social online too. Don’t forget to share your photos, insights, learnings and fun times using the #Xerocon hashtag.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
