3 Reasons to Attend QuickBooks Connect Toronto 2017

We’re living in an age where every industry, including accounting and bookkeeping, has become digitized, automated and integrated. Real-time visibility into your entire business is now possible. Communicating with business associates and clients is as easy as the click of a button. And, conducting business from any location at any time is the norm. These advances save you time, money and effort, while increasing customer satisfaction and profitability. But, navigating this ever-changing and cloud-based technological journey can be overwhelming on your own.

Thankfully, you don’t have to go at it alone! Intuit’s® QuickBooks® Connect (QBC) Toronto 2017 – coming Dec. 4-6, 2017, in Toronto, Ontario – is the place where you can gather with like-minded people and receive real-world advice on how to grow your business and keep up with the ever-changing industry.

If this sounds like something you and your business would benefit from, then register for QBC Toronto right away – the conference is filling up fast!

Thinking about attending, but not ready to commit? Here are three reasons we think will help you make your decision.

Reason #1: Training Sessions

No matter how many conferences you go to, there are certain aspects that determine the quality of the event, and the provided trainings should be at the top of the list. QBC Toronto fills each day with expert-led breakout sessions covering topics and issues you deal with daily in your own accounting and bookkeeping practice.

When you register for QBC Toronto, you’ll have the option to choose a three-day pass for the full conference (recommended for accounting professionals, bookkeepers and tax preparers), or a one-day pass (recommended for business owners, the self-employed and developers). The pass you select will determine the breakout sessions you’re able to attend. For example, the first day of the conference has Core and Advanced QuickBooks Online (QBO) trainings, as well as Essential and Comprehensive ProFile trainings, which are not available to the one-day pass holders.

As you deliberate over which pass to choose, here’s a taste of the breakout topics throughout the event:

  • Advanced Transactions in QBO
  • Stop chasing clients! Collaboration in ProFile (Hub and Link)
  • How to Grow Your Tax and Bookkeeping Business Together
  • Rapid Integrated ProtoTyping
  • Cash Flow Management as a service for your clients
  • Creating Engaging Training Videos for Your Clients

This list barely touches the amazing breakouts available during the conference. For detailed information, including times and speakers, check out the QBC Toronto agenda.

Reason #2: Networking

The word “networking” can incite both excitement and dread. Regardless of how you feel about it, networking plays an important role in the business world.

At QBC Toronto 2017, there’s plenty of time for you to meet and get to know your industry peers, especially during the densely populated – and popular – EXPO. These moments allow you to learn from people doing the exact same thing you do, people who have the same passion and desire to succeed. Building both professional and personal relationships at the conference generates business opportunities you may not have had otherwise. And, finding out what others in your same position do that work – and finding out those things that don’t – is invaluable for moving your business forward.

While the success of your business does not rest solely on how well you network, it can be positively impacted by your efforts.

Reason #3: Direct Access to the Intuit Team
