The Spotlight highlight on Accountex London 2024

Returning in 2024, Accountex London, a premier accountancy and finance expo, was held on 15-16 May. It's one of the few events where over 10,000 accountants, financial professionals, and hundreds of technology providers gather under one roof.

Spotlight Reporting was delighted to be back for another year exhibiting at Accountex London for the two-day event. Our team travelled from all over the UK to be there at ExCel London, where they had the chance to demonstrate our innovative product suite.

The Spotlight Reporting team demonstrated the capabilities of our reporting and forecasting tools and it was a pleasure to engage with many professionals eager to harness our software to transform their businesses and enhance client services.

DAY 1: Strong coffee and a Spotlight team buzz 

Day one started with lots of coffee, before many insightful conversations with accountants and business owners ready to discover the power of Spotlight Reporting. The team was in full force booking demonstrations and sharing real-life examples of how our solutions help deliver great results to businesses. The stand was filling up, and we had some great giveaways to hand out including our exclusive Transform! book written by our CEO and Co-founder, Richard Francis, as well as our eye-opening Global Advisory Trends Report 2023/2024.

Engaging sessions and expert panels

The team had a jam-packed schedule on day one. Matt Kekena, our Product Experience Lead took to the tables, joining The Accounting Influencers Roundtable sessions with discussions around ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), reporting tools and more. 

As the day continued to see heavy footfall at our stand, the afternoon's excitement carried on when Mel Rollason, our Customer Success Specialist, took to the stage with App Advisory Plus. They led a panel discussion, ‘Advisory in the New Era: Bridging the Gap Between the Accounting Firm and the Client’ and were joined by our valued customers, Synergee and Youtopia. Will Farnell, Co-founder of App Advisory Plus and Farnell Clarke, hosted the session, offering riveting discussion points and fielding excellent audience questions.
