In just a few months, we’re heading back to Sydney’s iconic Darling Harbour for Xerocon 2023! On 23 and 24 August, we’re bringing our partner community together from across the globe for two inspiring days.

So what can you expect? As the world’s most beautiful and innovative conference for cloud accounting leaders, this is your opportunity to see world-class speakers and entertainers, hear thought-provoking updates from Xero’s leadership team, and take home practical learnings from the Xero showcases on day one and day two to boost the success of your practice. What’s more, you’ll have the chance to dance the night away at the famous Xerocon wrap party. Read on for a closer look at this year’s agenda – take it from us; you won’t want to miss out.

A reimagined main stage

After six months in the seat as Xero’s CEO, Sukhinder Singh Cassidy will hit the main stage for her first-ever Xerocon appearance. From purpose to partnerships, Sukhinder will share why you – the advisory community – are critical to the future of small business success.

Joining Sukhinder will be Diya Jolly – Xero’s new Chief Product Officer – to share insights on the products and connections that drive better collaboration, save you time and generate greater value across our platform. 

For our returning partners, this showcase will be unlike any you’ve seen at Xerocon before. So get ready to experience everything Xero has to offer in a reimagined format. Plus, the afternoon breakout sessions will help you go deeper into the topics that matter most, from how to get paid faster to improving your workflow with integrated apps, and so much more. 

Stellar speakers and one iconic host 

From global executives to innovators and changemakers, this year’s lineup of guest speakers is designed to impress. To set the scene, we’re thrilled to announce our host – Julia Zemiro, an iconic Australian TV personality and actress whose glittering career has seen her interview big names from Bill Bryson to Stephen Fry. 

Day one will see former Nike Vice President and acclaimed business leader Lisa MacCallum take the stage, followed by Sam Elsom. As a passionate environmentalist and entrepreneur, Sam will share a deep dive into how small businesses can drive sustainability, drawing on his expertise in ethical design and manufacturing. 

On day two, you’ll hear from Mark Pesce – a leading futurist and entrepreneur. With over 35 years of experience in the digital revolution space, Mark will deliver an enlightening session exploring the impact of AI on the accounting industry.

A wrap party to remember 

The Xerocon wrap parties of years gone by are legendary (if you know, you know) – and this year’s celebration will be no different. For one night only, we’re turning Sydney’s iconic ivy bar into an island resort for our ‘Paradiso’ theme. Get ready to party at the poolside with live music, lots of surprises, and a special performance from the legendary dance music group Sneaky Sound System. Inflatable flamingos and neon ensembles will be encouraged! 

We’re so excited to reconnect with our community at Xerocon Sydney this year. If you haven’t already secured your spot, be sure to take advantage of our second release offer to save over $200. But get in quick as this deal is only available until 11:59pm (AEST) on 7 July or until sold out. Looking forward to seeing you there!
