Accountex London is returning in the Spring, on 15-16 May 2024. London’s ExCeL is expected to welcome over ten thousand accounting and finance professionals through its doors. 

The education programme offers up to 16 free CPD hours, and will be held across 13 theatres and 250+ sessions. It will be made up of innovators and thought-leaders from the field and beyond.  

Commenting on this, Accountex portfolio director, Caroline Hobden, said: “This is our best programme to date! It covers a wide variety of topics for those in practice or industry, for bookkeepers and those just starting out in their careers – there is something for everybody.”

Former UK chancellor (2016-2019) and RCK senior advisor, Philip Hammond, will be hosting the seminar ‘Forward look – what the future looks like for the UK economy and public finances’. Hammond will explore future threats and opportunities for the economy, as well as the part the tax system can play in delivering the solutions.
