About the Conference
The Ultimate Accounting vCon is designed for accounting professionals who want to update their accounting, technology, and marketing skills so they can improve their businesses or perform their job better.
V Is for Virtual
Unlike a “brick-and-mortar” conference where you have to get on an airplane or in a car to get to the venue, the Ultimate Accounting vCon is virtual, digital, in the cloud! So all you need is your computer and an Internet connection.
We’ll use a combination of web, social media, and webinar technology to bring the conference to your coziest chair in your very own living room. You’ll get to ask the speakers questions, watch demonstrations and PowerPoint presentations, interact with your peers through our community forum, and win cool stuff, just like you would at a traditional conference.
Our theme is “Accelerate Your Success,” and we’re getting back to basics. We’ll cover things that matter to your business like:
- How to price both old and new services
- How to find new revenue stream ideas
- How to get clients
- How to learn how to introduce clients to new technologies
- How to transition clients to new technologies without losing your revenue
- And much more
We are extremely grateful to our Platinum, Gold, and Silver vCon sponsors. They not only help us defray your registration costs; they have powerful accounting solutions that help us help our clients and do our jobs even better. Please visit the Exhibit Hall often.
If you currently have your own business and want fresh ideas or plan to start one soon and want to start building your skill sets, then the Ultimate Accounting vCon is perfect for you.
About the Conference Technology
All webinar sessions will be held using GoToWebinar. We will provide a short training session (which will be repeated) on GoToWebinar prior to the conference so that you can feel comfortable with the software prior to the first day.
The system requirements for GoToWebinar are:
Required: Windows(R) 7, Vista, XP or 2003 Server
Required: Mac OS(R) X 10.5 or newer
Sound – telephone or PC speakers
You do NOT need a telephone to use GoToWebinar, but it is preferred if you plan to dialog with any of the speakers. It avoids an echo and makes for a cleaner recording. Read our Audio Checklist for tips on using your computer’s microphone and speakers with GoToWebinar. http://support.citrixonline.com/en_US/gotowebinar/all_files/GTW040001
If you missed a session, you can download the video recording. These recordings will be available for one month after the event. Once you’ve downloaded the sessions to your computer, you can listen to them anytime. Please note CPE is only available for those who listen live.
The vCon will offer an Exhibit Hall, where you can connect with all of your favorite accounting vendors. We’ll be providing training as well as a tour soon.
The vCon will furnish a community forum where you can interact with other participants, ask questions, form groups, and much more. We’ll supply training as well as the details shortly.
