Register for Pre-show events
We’ve partnered with our app partners this year to organise Pre-show events that will enhance your Xero Roadshow experience. Pre-show events are fringe events that have been put together by Xero app partners before roadshow, and provides a workshop-style, intimate experience for you to learn more about Xero apps and how they can help your practice and clients. Pre-show events take place one day before Xero Roadshow in each city:
|Malaysia Pre-shows: Tue, 5 Nov
||Singapore Pre-shows: Tue, 12 Nov
||Hong Kong Pre-shows: Wed, 20 Nov
Lookout for exhibitor demos at the App Pitch Stage
This year’s Xero Roadshow features an App Pitch Stage on the expo floor where you can watch your favourite Xero partner apps in action. App pitches and demonstrations take place at the App Pitch Stage during break times. No registration is required. Keep a lookout for the following pitch sessions:
|Malaysia app pitches
||Singapore app pitches
||Hong Kong app pitches

Set up your social media accounts
The best thing about Xero Roadshow is the community – and by attending you get to meet 2,000 other like-minded accountants and bookkeepers who are with you on the cloud journey. Set up your social media accounts ahead of the roadshow so you can instantly connect with the people you meet. It’s the easiest way to stay in touch! We also encourage you to share your learnings with the #xeroroadshow hashtag. Now get your selfie game on!
Bring everyone from your team
Whether you run your own practice, serve clients, or do the day-to-day accounting (or all of the above!) – Xero Roadshow has something for you. Many of our accounting and bookkeeping partners bring their entire team to every Xero Roadshow because it’s a great way to learn, and one of the best ways to get everyone aligned on the cloud journey. Spots are filling fast, so be sure to send this on to your team!
Know your account manager and meet the Xero team
Do you know your account manager? For many of our partners around Asia, Xero Roadshow is the opportunity for you to finally meet face-to-face with their account manager and the rest of the Xero team. While we love technology, it can never beat an in-person interaction! Roadshows can get very busy, so be sure to connect with your account manager in advance and arrange a time and place to meet.
