New Xerocon New Orleans: August 24-25, 2022

Why has Xero moved Xerocon from May to August 24–25?

Because of continued uncertainty with regard to Covid-19, we feel postponing is the right thing to do to help keep our community safe.

I’ve already purchased Xerocon tickets? Will they be valid for the new dates?

Yes, your tickets are now valid for August 24–25 and no further action is required.

What if I can’t attend on the new dates? Can I get a refund?

Yes, if you have purchased a ticket prior to February 3, 2022, and cannot attend in August, you can submit your request for a refund by emailing xerocon.americas@xero.com. We’ll waive the $50 refund fee for any tickets purchased before February 3, 2022.

I’ve booked my travel. Will you reimburse me for the cost to change my flights?

No, Xero will not reimburse Xerocon attendees for hotels, flights or other travel-related expenses. Speak with your airline and hotel about their change and cancellation policies.

Events and tickets

What’s included in the Xerocon ticket price?

A Xerocon ticket includes the two-day conference on August 24–25, 2022, and the Xerocon wrap party on the evening of Thursday, August 25.

Can we split tickets between more than one person over the two days?

We don’t offer split tickets since Xerocon is designed as a two-day experience.

Can we pay in installments?

Unfortunately not. All tickets must be paid by credit card in full at time of purchase.

Can we pay by invoice?

We’ll process 10 or more tickets by invoice. Payment terms are 7 days from the date of invoice unless otherwise specified. Please email xerocon.americas@xero.com if you wish to pay by invoice.

What social functions are there?

The Xerocon wrap party is on Thursday, August 25. Access to the wrap party is included in your ticket price.

Can I bring a guest to the wrap party?

Not this year unfortunately. Due to Covid-19 safety measures, only people who purchase tickets for the full event can attend the wrap party.

If I can’t attend in person, can I still tune into Xerocon New Orleans online?

Xerocon is an event you really have to be at to experience, but given the current circumstances with Covid-19, we understand that not everyone may be ready for travel and events. Though we aren’t having a virtual option for Xerocon New Orleans, we will be hosting roadshows and considering additional ways we can connect with you and our wider Xero community throughout 2022.

Will attendees need to be vaccinated?

The City of New Orleans currently requires proof of vaccination upon entry to indoor venues or a negative Covid-19 PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before entry. We’ll continue to monitor and follow state and local guidance.

Will I have to wear a mask?

Covid-19 guidance is continually evolving. Our top priority is the health and wellbeing of staff and attendees, so we will continue to follow guidelines from state and local government, and the CDC, with regard to masks.

What are the event terms and conditions?
