The 8th Digital Accountancy Forum and Awards 2019

We’re delighted to announce the return of the Digital Accountancy Forum and Awards. We’ll be bringing together leading accounting firms, regulators and industry bodies, consultancies and advisors, law firms and tech vendors to debate key issues impacting the sector and opportunities for growth.

Returning to London, this prestigious event will celebrate the best and most innovative developments in modern accounting. The daytime summit explores market trends and new solutions, such as Utilizing Artificial Intelligence for Contract Analysis and Integration and Automation: How to deliver exiting new world solutions effectively. This event seeks to uncover tomorrow’s leaders and we’ll be featuring case studies from leading companies on how they’re preparing for a fully digitalised future.

Our evening awards show will recognise excellence in accounting and we’ll commemorate the achievements of the past year from both accounting firms and solution providers.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 2019 edition.
