Six reasons to sign up for the Accounts Payable Association event 2021

It may seem like a lifetime ago since you last step foot in a trade exhibition.

But here at AccessPay we’re swapping plastic lanyards and long coffee queues for a digital exhibition (oooh very 2021) – and you’re all invited!

The Accounts Payable Association (APA) appreciation week runs from May 17 to May 21.

This is your chance to hear from finance leaders on the latest innovations, experience virtual stands, network with others in similar roles and make the most of some exceptional giveaways.

AccessPay is headline sponsor of the partner exhibition day (Wednesday May 19) and will have a virtual stand throughout the week filled with interactive content, fantastic giveaways and some very friendly faces.

Caroline Meredith, sales and marketing director at AccessPay said: “We are really proud to be headline sponsoring this great event.

“It’s been a challenging year, but it’s fantastic to see so many people from the industry coming together to share their experiences and discuss the future of the AP profession.

“The AccessPay team will be available on our virtual stand to discuss how our payment automation platform has enabled customers to futureproof their finance operations.

“We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy the event.”

Still not sure…? Here’s 6 reasons why you should sign up:

You will hear it here first

Not only is the event being attended by 1,500+ delegates, there’s a stellar line-up of speakers.

The APA is running a series of expert panel discussions ranging from how technology is shaping the future of finance and the year in review to how to raise the AP team profile in your organisation.

AccessPay CEO Anish Kapoor will take the stage (so to speak) on May 19 to discuss his journey from chartered accountant to tech entrepreneur and how our solution bridges a vital gap between corporate back-office systems and banks/ payment schemes.

The giveaways are great

We’d like to chat to as many of you as possible – so we’re offering a fantastic prize draw to encourage you to stop by.

Forget lollipops on the stand, we’ve wrestled our own finance team to secure a set of AirPod Pro headphones to giveaway.

This must-have Apple accessory, worth £250, will be won by one lucky visitor to our virtual booth during the week.

It’s time to talk

After being cooped up with families, pets and Netflix for over 12 months, it’s time to get back out there.

Ok, maybe not be in person this time, but we all know it’s great to meet like-minded professionals.

At the APA event you can make new connections, join in live discussions, put questions to expert panelists and, of course, find out more about the latest finance automation tools like AccessPay.

Top tips for progression

It’s not just your company who benefit from you coming along – your career prospects do too.

Be inspired by real-life peer stories and get advice on how to progress in a transactional finance role.

Dip in to a live training course on May 18 or discover a new industry-wide mentoring scheme.

It is free to attend

It seems like a steal but all of this can be accessed and enjoyed for absolutely nothing.

Yes, it’s a free event open to all financial professionals around the globe – and there won’t be a single expenses claim in sight afterwards (sorry couldn’t resist).

Share the love 

Finally, as the title suggests, this event is all about learning new skills, meeting new people and showing your colleagues some appreciation.

The APA has designed a ‘Wall of Appreciation’ for delegates to share personalised thanks to work pals, managers or organisations.

For a bit of feelgood factor look out for the special hashtags on social media during the week.
