Xero Roadshow USA is returning this May to a city near you, giving you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and keep up with all things Xero. If you’re not familiar with Roadshows, last year, we held events in 26 cities across the US and Canada for accountants and bookkeepers to evaluate challenges and opportunities defining the industry. We had such a great time connecting with hundreds of local advisors at each event, we’ve decided to pack our bags for another round of shows this spring.
If you’re considering joining us, I wanted to share some insights as to why you should attend.
Learn about the full power of the Xero platform
At Xero Roadshows, the sessions focus on product updates and demos so you can learn about the latest developments in Xero’s practice platform, and how it has been built to help improve the way a firm operates. During our end-to-end demo, we will showcase how features like Workpapers simplifies client workflows, while Report Templates provides you with the business insights needed to efficiently run your firm. Whether you’re still considering if Xero is the right fit for your business, or if you’ve been using Xero for years, there is always something new to learn.
The events aren’t strictly about Xero — we invite a number of our eco-system partners, like Hubdoc, who are available to demo their products and show our guests how their tools seamlessly integrate with Xero.
Get the complete Xero experience
When I describe Xero Roadshows to others, I like to compare it to a “mini Xerocon.” Why? These half-day sessions feature education, product demos, and end with networking and a happy hour. Roadshows are a way you can become part of the Xero journey as you network with peers and meet others in the community. So, take advantage of all the opportunities to mingle, make connections, and have fun along the way!
At our Roadshows, you’ll also have a chance to hear from our leadership team. It’s a unique way to get face time with our team and hear about our strategy for the US market.
One of our partners summed up the environment of our fall roadshows nicely:
“In the three hours I was at the fall 2018 Roadshow I met four fellow partners, that I have since developed ongoing collaborative relationships with. By talking to other Xero partners, I worked through a few sticky integration problems that had been plaguing our team. It’s a super energizing and productive experience to be with other people who speak the love-language of cloud accounting! Where Xerocon provides the opportunity to catch the big trends and changes at Xero and network with the larger cloud accounting community, Roadshows are all about what’s happening with folks in your neck of the woods. — Sarah Hopen, CPB; Principal, STAR Company
Engage with your local community team
I see Roadshows as the perfect opportunity to get to know the local accountants and bookkeepers. By connecting with local communities across the country, our Xero team has learned about the ingredients for running a successful practice. So if something is or isn’t working at your firm, we can put you in touch with Xeros in your community to discuss shared learnings or similar challenges faced so everyone comes out ahead.
Above all, Xero Roadshows are formed around a supportive community — whether you’re just starting out on Xero or are a long time user. You’ll make real connections at Xero Roadshows so you can learn tips and tricks from others about their digital transformation, how they’ve improved their workflow, and so much more.
