“The first time I came to this conference was in 2002 when Sarbanes-Oxley hit. My initial takeaway was, “wow, this is big, this is overwhelming, this is great, this is everybody on a national level.” I took a little hiatus and started coming back in 2013 and was a speaker both in 2016 and 2017. The reason I keep coming back is just exactly for that: It’s national. You’re talking to everybody across the industry and while we’re in different geographic regions dealing with different clients of all shapes and sizes, we’re all dealing with the same issues at the end of the day and we want to know how to stay competitive - how do we stop working against each other and work with each other to bring value to our clients in the industry – when we have that face-to-face time to interact and collaborate, that’s the best reason to come here.
Of course, the content is amazing and it’s cutting edge but to be face-to-face with our peers is the driving reason.”
Jim Lundy, CPA, Partner at Ernst & Young
"Here’s what’s so good about [the conference]: I tell people all the time that you can read the books and the financial statements that think this is what you are supposed to do. You can read the tax books that give instructions and predict what will happen but at the end of the day it’s extremely hard to forecast and understand your most vital action points. Then you get to this conference and talk to the people that are really doing it and you find out, this is how it’s done. That’s why the attendees continue to come back …there’s always something new and there’s always the chance of getting new ideas.
Additionally, this isn’t just a conference for those coming year after year. There’s new faces every year. It’s much younger and there’s many more female accountants. It now looks about half [males] and half [females] which is great.""
"I think this is "the" conference to get the latest industry data, analytics, and implementation detail from the experts and guidance makers."
– Mark Hagander
"Great annual wrap up on developments in real Estate, tax and accounting issues, as well as industry updates and forecast."
– Bruce Macewen
"What I liked the most was the experiential information from presenters. As a smaller firm it is great to hear what larger firms are doing related to new issues."
– Christopher York
