Our Xerocon New Orleans Wrap: The Event With Soul

After a long-awaited three years, in the city known for its festive spirit, live music, unique heritage, and traditions - New Orleans, Xero had its much anticipated second series of Xerocon 2022. The event kicked off with a bang with soulful music and a vibrant atmosphere and although footfall was low this year, it did not stop it from being a spectacular show. 

This being my first Xerocon ever, the two days were undoubtedly inspiring for me, especially the fireside chat between two influential women who have proved to the world that there is no limit to what we as women can accomplish, the former Chair and CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi and Xero Canada Country Manager, Faye Pang. 

As anyone who’s been to Xerocon will agree, it’s not just about the main stage announcements. Xerocon is a colorful event and a great opportunity to meet our partners and make new connections, but to also have lots of fun along the way. 

For those of you that weren't able to join us, check out our quick recap to discover some of the highlights:
