Xerocon Austin Debriefing
We’re back from a fantastic Xerocon in Austin I wanted to capture a few of the highlights now that we’ve thawed out. Who’d have expected snow in Austin, not the locals apparently! Xerocon is always a great opportunity to meet up with our partners and friends in the industry and Xerocon USA is the epicenter for us with Amazon being such a massive part of ecommerce in the US, and specialist ecommerce accounting being a fast growing and important market for accountants. It’s always a pleasure to catch up and talk about future product roadmap plans and marketing initiatives with current and future partners. We’re lucky to have such high calibre, progressive partners to work with. We were thrilled that Rod Drury gave A2X a shoutout on stage during his Xerocon keynote, a huge vote of confidence for this industry and our solution.
Shout out to @a2xaccounting from @roddrury on the stage. Reminder to pay attention to #amazon and its sellers as business goes more and more global. #Xerocon

Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, visited out booth and was kind enough to take a few selfies with visitors.

After the conference, Jeff even stopped off in Denver for a visit with the Xero team there.

After the end of Day 2 of the conference (but before the big party of course) we hosted an informal Amazon Accounting Meetup bringing the top Amazon accountants in the US, accountants new to ecommerce and interested in ecommerce and even a few Amazon sellers. Scott Scharf was brave enough to field some tough questions from the crowd, giving everyone some insight into inventory and integration best practices.
‘Ahhhh, that’s a tough question!’ Someone stumping @ScottScharf2 @Xero #xerocon pic.twitter.com/oHZUNJ4ZRu
