The 9th Digital Accountancy Forum and Awards 2020

We’re delighted to announce the return of the Digital Accountancy Forum and Awards 2020. We’ll be bringing together leading accounting firms, regulators and industry bodies, consultancies and advisors, law firms and tech vendors to debate key issues impacting the sector and opportunities for growth. Returning to London, this prestigious event will celebrate the best and most innovative developments in modern accounting. The daytime summit explores market trends and new solutions, such as the implementation of AI and RPA in streamlining operations and the practical utilisation of blockchain in day to day management. This event seeks to uncover tomorrow’s leaders and we’ll be featuring case studies from leading companies on how they’re preparing for a fully digitalised future. Our evening awards show will recognise excellence in accounting and we’ll commemorate the achievements of the past year from both accounting firms and solution providers. We look forward to welcoming you to our 2020 edition.

What to expect from the 2020 event

The 2020 Digital Accountancy Forum will host a high calibre speaker faculty to deliver presentations on the most pressing accountancy themes. The Forum will prioritise key topics impacting the industry and dissect the challenges, opportunities and practical considerations for achieving the various objectives. Underlying these core themes will be insight into the barriers to evolution in accountancy such as regulatory reporting, data management, legacy systems and the digital skills gap.

The core themes explored in last year’s summit included examining how to nurture digital literacy, how to accelerate technology implementation, how to adapt to new business models the practical benefits of blockchain.  

We’ll be delving into these issues again in 2020 and will also further consider how to develop the next generation of accounting leaders, how the sector can overcome recent controversies and the potential for government intervention in the market.  

The above topics support accounting firms in remaining competitive, becoming future-proof and capitalising on digital innovation to boost efficiency.    

Delegates attending the day time Forum will benefit from case study based presentations, interactive discussions and debates about these key themes from the most senior and experienced Institutions in the sector.  

Once the Forum is complete the evening will look to celebrate the most impressive and successful initiatives from the sector over the past 12 months. Awards will be given for wide-ranging achievements and will look to highlight leaders in the industry and efforts to progress accounting
