Xero is ending its practice of having annual editions of its Xerocon conference in its major markets. Starting next year, the New Zealand-based company will move to what it calls global conferences.
In its prepared statement, the company gave its reason as “providing more opportunities for its growing communities to connect.”
Xerocon will be held in Australia from August 23 through 24 in 2023 and then will be held in the United Kingdom and United States in 2024. The revamped conference will debut in Canada in 2025.
The accounting software company held conferences in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia in 2022.
