Expensify’s second conference to take place in Bora Bora
Expense reporting software company Expensify’s second industry conference will take place next year on a private island in the South Pacific.
Expensicon II, like Expensicon Maui in 2016, is invitation-only, and promises to bring together 100 leaders in accounting and technology. It will take place April 21-25, 2018, in Bora Bora, a small group of islands in the Pacific Ocean northwest of Tahiti.
“Only an experience way outside the norm can create the quality of discussion and depth of relationships we’re aiming for,” Expensify founder and CEO David Barrett said in a statement. He added that his only regret from last year’s conference in Maui was that he wasn’t thinking big enough.
Greg LaFollette, strategic advisor at CPA.com, described Expensify’s first conference as close-knit. “[The conference] was incredibly conducive to establishing new relationships with other forward-thinkers, and we are already seeing those relationships develop into important partnerships across the industry,” he added in a statement.
