Submissions for papers, presentations and speakers wanted for our new exhibition.


To be held in the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 2-3 Dec 2020, AccountingWEB Live is our new  exhibition, where we’ll be combining our best-in-class blend of inspiring and practical content with cutting edge technology showcases. The exhibition will also feature a fully CPD-accredited educational programme.

Today, we are formally announcing a call for papers and speakers for our content programme. We are working with industry experts, associations, industry veterans and the rising stars of the community to ensure our content programme is both relevant and innovative. Practical content, inspiring speakers, expert insight and live debate will be prioritised.

A live content thread is available now in Any Answers where community members can submit ideas, arrange to meet up or just discuss what they would (and wouldn’t) like to see.
