The next month is a big month for the QuickBooks market. With the QuickBooks Connect conference happening next week in sunny San Jose, CA, to be followed less than a month later by the Solutions14 conference by the Sleeter Group, the next month should provide amble opportunity to learn and discover the benefits of QuickBooks and its add-on market.
In preparation for these next 30 days, we thought we’d take a little space to discuss the two conferences coming up, what we’re excited about, and how this impacts you.
QuickBooks Connect 2014
With pre-conference seminars beginning this upcoming Monday, the QuickBooks Connect conference is just around the corner. The beauty of the Connect conference is that it is designed not only for accountants, but for all small business owners and entrepreneurs. Intuit prides itself on delivering a wide range of tools to the SMB market that go beyond debits and credits. From classes on developing innovation to how to use social media in your marketing, QuickBooks Connect has seminars for everyone. Combine that with the impressive keynote speakers on deck like Martha Stewart, Giuliana Rancic, and Magic Johnson, as well as musical headliner, Train, it’s clear QuickBooks Connect is one conference you don’t want to miss.
Solutions14 by The Sleeter Group
We’re less than a month away from Solutions14 in Las Vegas, NV. Like last year, the conference will be held at Caesar’s Palace on the strip. Over the last few years, Sleeter has expanded its conference by making it not so QuickBooks centric (though QB is still the “Diamond” exhibitor) by inviting other host accounting software like Sage and Xero to share some of the spotlight. This wider market, along with the many add-on software also in the exhibit hall (like us at Wellspring Software!), give attendees a great opportunity to gain a clear understanding of what is happening in the accounting industry. You can always count on the Sleeter Group to highlight top trends and technology in the market with keynote addresses and tech focused seminars like “Is Bitcoin your future?”
Both of these conferences provide accountants and small businesses a clearer understanding of what is currently available in the market, what’s coming down the pipeline, and best practices to improve efficiency and increase profits. We look forward to seeing you at either conference!
