11th & 12th September 2024 in Düsseldorf

The Future of Accounting

The world of accounting is undergoing rapid change. Advancing digitalization and automation, driven by technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA), are revolutionizing our ways of working. But that's not all. The increasing importance of cybersecurity, European standards for sustainability reporting (ESRS), and ESG present us with new challenges. However, they also offer significant opportunities. Real-time reporting enables informed decision-making, and the integration of sustainability criteria helps us create long-term value and minimize risks. To meet these important changes, we must continuously adapt and evolve our practices and standards.

The Accounting Summit is the premier trade fair and conference to discuss these critical issues with top-notch speakers, experts, and innovators, to stay informed about current trends, exchange best practices, and actively shape the future of the accounting industry.

Taking place on September 11th and 12th in Düsseldorf.

Yokoy attended the Accounting Summit 2022 and was thoroughly impressed by the speakers' quality, the event's organization, and the overall atmosphere. The topics covered were highly relevant and the speakers were knowledgeable and engaging. Especially the networking opportunities were excellent, we were able to connect with many professionals in the accounting field from a variety of industries. We left the conference with a number of valuable connections and potential business opportunities. The event was a fantastic experience, and we would highly recommend it to anyone working in the accounting field.

The Accounting Summit was held for the second time and has quickly established itself as a leading event in the accounting environment. A gap has been filled here. The concrete conversations, industry networking and relevant sessions make this a must-attend event for anyone who wants to keep their finger on the pulse of the accounting environment. We appreciate the fresh, dynamic and straightforward approach. We will definitely be there again.

The Accounting Summit 2022 has shown that accounting and FP&A are not dry as dust and boring - but exciting, never boring and constantly changing with the times.

I have been missing a Summit for Accounting! Finally, real networking with the topic Accounting. Super organized and especially great presentations - what I find good this year it takes place over 2 days. Of course we will be there again! We all found the event exciting: networking, exchange with professional audience, partners and peers. I'm really looking forward to it!

Fresh, dynamic and innovative! In addition to the great presentations and masterclasses, we were able to have many in-depth conversations with partners and visitors about digital finance tools. Our participation at the first Accounting Summit exceeded our expectations and we are looking forward to the next and even bigger Accounting Summit 2022.

The Accounting Summit 2023 was a great event! Informative booths, presentations and discussions and lots of opportunities for networking and fun activities. The Accounting Summit team provided me with excellent support as a speaker on all organizational topics. The event location was the icing on the cake. I can highly recommend the event.


Stefan Köhler, CFO at flaconi


The Accounting Summit is a format that is now three years young and, in my opinion, has "polished up" accounting and created the right mix and acceptance with experts, well-known companies and innovative start-ups. It brings together decision-makers who all have a digital agenda and can benefit from each other. And all of this with high-quality networking, an open exchange and a relaxed atmosphere.


Susanne Ollmann
Head of Global Business Services Accounting and Payroll, Villeroy & Boch


A very successful and fresh format. For us, the Accounting Summit 2023 was very rewarding and inspiring. Anyone looking for a platform for innovative accounting & controlling solutions should not miss it.


Sebastian Waßermann
CFO, interzero


The trade fair offered a wealth of information and insights into current trends in the finance sector. It was extremely helpful to recognize potential need for action for the future at an early stage and at the same time to find solutions for current everyday problems. The opportunity to exchange ideas with other participants who have similar challenges to ours was particularly positive. The exchange of experiences and best practices was extremely valuable and helped to reveal new perspectives. From start-ups to corporates, all sizes were represented, which provided different perspectives and guidance. I am already looking forward to future editions of the fair.


Henrik Fröhlich
Finance Director - Head of Accounting, Sovereign Speed


Two days of conference, expo and exchange of experiences around trends and innovative technology solutions for the digitalization of billing and accounting processes - it was inspiring and absolutely exciting. The Accounting Summit 2023 in Berlin was an outstanding event. We were impressed by the excellent mix of speakers, interesting topics and innovations as well as the high-caliber audience. For us, the use of AI methods in accounting was one of the top topics, where we were able to contribute our experience as part of the "Billing meets AI" masterclass.


Eduard Postrak
Management Board, Cronon GmbH


The Accounting Summit was an impressive event! It was not only an opportunity for us to make valuable contacts, but also a platform to share ideas on the topic of digitalization in accounting & finance. I was particularly pleased to have the opportunity to present my experiences as part of a masterclass. A great experience that I'm already looking forward to again next year!

The Accounting Summit is now an established meeting place for intensive and good discussions as well as exciting presentations on all aspects of accounting. Last but not least, it is the many new contacts that make this event so interesting.

In my opinion, the Accounting Summit is the ideal platform for getting to know new finance and accounting tools, making great contacts and exchanging valuable experiences. There are many exciting presentations from which you can always take something away for yourself and your company. I also had a great experience as a speaker at the Accounting Summit, thanks to the outstanding organization and a great team in front of and behind the stage.


Fatih Esir

Last year, we were the first major consulting firm to be represented at the Accounting Summit with a stand and a masterclass. An event that is second to none: Fresh format, very good talks, interesting presentations and panel discussions as well as uncomplicated and highly professional event management. An event that very clearly addresses topics in the CFO agenda, with a strong focus on digitalization. We at Mazars are very pleased that we will be there again this year with colleagues from various service lines (Consulting, Accounting Outsourcing Services, Tax) and, of course, especially for the joint MasterClass with Nexperia, in which we describe the path to the first sustainability report from practice.


Wolfgang Voell

The Accounting Summit is an outstanding event that is unparalleled in the world of accounting and controlling. It is an essential meeting for our team, where we not only see familiar faces again, but also make new contacts and gain fresh impetus. The Summit's dynamic atmosphere captures the latest moods, opinions and trends in our industry and brings them directly and vividly to us. The masterclasses are a particular gem - they are gold mines of practical wisdom that provide participants with valuable, immediately applicable knowledge. The Accounting Summit is more than just a conference; it is a source of inspiration and a platform for innovation that enriches and motivates our team year after year.
