Accountex USA discontinued
The accounting conference Accountex will no longer be held in the United States, according to an announcement from the organizers on Jan 3. The conference will continue in the U.K., this year in London and Manchester.
The organizers did not respond to a request for comment.
For 2018, Accountex switched from a conference model to a traditional trade show model and was free for the first time. The conference was held last year in Boston, but at the time, attendees didn’t know it would be the last one in the U.S.
The U.S. Accountex event was previously known as SleeterCon, run by The Sleeter Group, founded by Doug Sleeter, CPA. The Sleeter Group was also a membership organization for accountants. Sleeter sold his company to Diversified Communications in 2015, which then took over the conference for accountants and accounting technology vendors and renamed it Accountex.
