We take a look at which events this year are the best for bookkeepers.

Festival of Accounting and Bookkeeping

13 – 14 March NEC, Birmingham

The year kicks off with a new event from the team behind AccountingWEB. Billed as “Two days of thought, tech and transformation” this event will have a dedicated area for bookkeepers (featuring ICB!) along with workshops, talks and plenty of networking. Event organisers are promising something different "It’s a get together, a festival. Not an ‘event’”.

The bookkeeping focus isn’t just lip service either, with many of the Bookkeeping glitterati already signed up to speak including ICB CEO Ami Copeland, the 6 Figure Bookkeeping Team, Rebecca Williams MICB and Penelope Allard FICB ACM PM.Dip.

Digital Accountancy Show

16 – 17 April 2024, London

DAS is back and bigger than ever. This year it's upgraded to a two-day event and moved to Evolution London, in Battersea. With eight stages – including the tech academy, the evolution theatre and a how-to hub - it’s an event with plenty to offer progressive bookkeepers. “We're set on bringing accounting pros together; not only those who have 'been there and done that' but are 'going there and doing that'. Future-minded individuals with not only a story to tell, but a plan to share as the industry continues to be shaped and reshaped by revolutions within AI, automation, sustainability, and recruitment.”

The ICB team will be there and look forward to connecting with bookkeepers.

15 – 16 May London

The original event for the accountancy profession has always attracted bookkeepers too, and remains the largest event on the circuit. It’s a great place to meet up with colleagues, suppliers and like-minded bookkeepers. ICB will be hosting the bookkeepers' theatre and will be sharing bookkeeper stories, industry insight and relevant legislative updates. It’s also the place to form new relationships and business opportunities. As always, we are looking forward to making the case on why good bookkeeping is essential for any accountancy practice.

Accountex Summit North

17 September 2024

The first event back after summer has a very different feel from its southern counterpart. There is the same great mix of speakers, suppliers and stands – but it’s on a smaller scale and contained in just one day, so it feels more manageable. It’s always a favourite for bookkeepers, and the ICB team will be on hand to meet and greet members and industry colleagues.
