“The fall 2016 AP & P2P Conference & Expo agenda offers more advanced content than ever before,” said Brian Cuthbert, Executive Director of IOFM. “If you’re looking for a place to focus on leadership strategy, or you’re highly automated, or you’re a controller, you’ll find what you need here at this conference.”
The main conference program will begin on October 24 at 4:15pm with keynote Libby Gill, best-selling author, who will discuss leadership and engagement. Immediately following the keynote, attendees will divide into peer-to-peer roundtable groups to engage in focused discussion with their fellow attendees about topics ranging from ERP system to common issues by department size. The first day will conclude with an opening reception in the exhibit hall from 6:30pm – 7:30pm.
Conference day two is filled with breakout sessions categorized into eight different tracks:

Attendees are encouraged to customize their personal schedules between the eight tracks to find a curriculum that meets their needs. Peer-to-peer roundtables will meet again toward the end of day two, immediately followed by a networking reception in the exhibit hall.
The last conference day will feature more breakout sessions in the morning. During the final luncheon, IOFM will present the 2016 Spotlight Awards, recognizing outstanding achievement in Accounts Payable in four different categories: AP Manager, AP Department, P2P Manager, and P2P Department. The winner from each category will be recognized onstage and awarded a trophy. Directly after the awards luncheon, the conference will conclude with three concurrent featured sessions.
