Inspiring exhibitors

Xerocon isn’t just about Xero, it’s also about our wider community. Our app partners play a key role in enabling our accounting and bookkeeping partners to provide the most effective solutions for their clients. On the exhibition floor, attendees can meet a wide range of app partners – an amazing opportunity to learn in person about apps and how they can benefit their clients. We’ve partnered with Practice Ignition for this event, and we’ve also got Fathom, Syft, a2x, relay, TOA Global and XU on board, with many more still to come.
