The DJ adjusts the sound at the Xerocon wrap-up party.

The inspirational speakers won’t be the only thing to move you on day one. The famous Xerocon party features infectious live music and entertainment that will have you cutting shapes on the dancefloor well into the evening. There’s a reason they call it ‘Glastonbury for accountants’. The party will be held at Old Billingsgate, 1 Old Billingsgate Walk, London, EC3R 6DX. It’s a 25-minute walk from Tobacco Dock or a 10-minute journey by car so make sure you plan your visit to London with this in mind.
