SleeterCon Becomes Accountex Through DivCom Acquisition
November 24, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsNovember 24, 2015 - Diversified Communications, parent company of The Sleeter Group, announced at SleeterCon last week the rebranding to Accountex USA. DivCom acquired the UK's only national exhibition for accountants and finance directors earlier this year to continue the global efforts of expansion.
The Sleeter Group has hosted an annual accounting technology conference and tradeshow for twelve years under the brand SleeterCon. That brand will change for the 2016 event and will become Accountex, the leading independent expo and conference focusing on accounting technology. The 2016 US event will be held November 15 – 17th at The Mirage Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Accountex USA focuses on the technology that moves accounting forward as well as the business processes and organizational success needed in the marketplace. It is an independent conference meaning that it offers more than one viewpoint of solutions. Accountex features all of the solutions and latest trends available, as well as the traditional technologies that still dominate, without any focus on a singular suite of products.
The direction of Accountex is led by some of the industry's leading thought leaders driving the future and helping to determine what businesses need to know about. Sessions are taught by experts, resulting in a high-caliber learning experience with real-world lessons and practical takeaways that can be implemented seamlessly.
Accountex UK attracts over 5,000 attendees internationally and features over 175 leading industry vendors. It is a vital business forum for sharing ideas and innovations within the accounting profession. That depth will translate over to the US marketplace and assist Sleeter members and sponsors with resources previously unavailable.
Misty Megia, Executive Director of The Sleeter Group explained: "The rebranding of our conference to Accountex is a positive step toward the continued growth and expansion of The Sleeter Group." She continued, "Attendance will increase exponentially giving exhibitors a broader audience while the global reach will expand resources and connections for our members. We are very excited for the coming year and the 2016 conference will be bigger, bolder and better!"
