"We have big plans for the globalisation of our events, working with regions to expand on those successes and bring them to the world."

At the end of July 2021, AICPA & CIMA's annual ENGAGE conference returns to Las Vegas. This global gathering of accounting and finance professionals is viewed by many as the profession's premier event of the year. To tell us more, we're joined by Todd Helton, the Association's Senior Director of Meetings and Conferences.

Talking Points. These are some of the topics we discuss in this episode.

  • What to expect from ENGAGE 2021 and how to be part of it, either in person in Las Vegas or online via the virtual ticket.
  • Other global conferences, including the recent debut of ENGAGE EUROPE.
  • The Association's wide-ranging and future-focused programme of conferences and events for the global profession.
  • How organisers changed and redefined events in the face of the challenges brought on by the global coronavirus pandemic
  • Ways that AICPA & CIMA continued to offer value and deliver success to professional attendees in new ways.
  • Developments and innovations that helped redefine and reimagine future events.
