Here at Pleo, we love Xero – and Xerocon.
Their software changed the game for accounting systems, taking them away from the world of dry, dull spreadsheets.
Not only that, but Xero puts a huge focus on working with software like Pleo – an integration that so many of our customers have loved from the first day we unveiled it.
That’s why we loved Xerocon 2019 so much.
#Xerocon2019: Team Pleo is here in full effect!

And yes, the Glastonbury thing is a big claim, but it does probably come close to summing up how cool of an event it is each year.
This year it was even cooler – because Pleo was there in full effect. Which is only fair, considering we’ve been nominated for a Xero Award (details on that below).
Meet Pleo’s co-founder Jeppe Rindom
Not only did our team at Xerocon 2019 meet lots of you to chat all things Pleo (more details on that below), but this year we had an additional reason to feel excited.

Our co-founder and CEO Jeppe Rindom gave a really well-attended Silver Stage presentation.
How do you attract the brightest millennial workers… and keep them?
It’s something we’re all passionate about at Pleo, not least Jeppe – so we hope people took a lot away from what he had to say.
Trust. Technology. Learning. Leadership. @jepperindom takes the stage at #xerocon to discuss how these things help to engage and retain millennial talent. Very proud #pleo over here! 💖 pic.twitter.com/9BiZTNccS3

‘If you can enable your workforce to trust your ambition and objectives as a business and in turn trust their impact and suggestions you will grow and allow meaning, purpose and loyalty to thrive – trust doesn’t mean losing control’ @pleo #Xerocon pic.twitter.com/mDKh9EvQW2

And the winner is…
The Xero Awards are a huge part of the whole Xerocon experience, rewarding the hard work of accountants and app partners over the past year.
This year we’re honoured to make the shortlist (there are only three nominees!) for Financial Services App of the Year.
Congrats to iwoca and GoCardless for also earning a nomination. See you at the ceremony in March!
What we’ve got planned for Xerocon
We’ll also be at Stand S2 (really close to Silver Stage #1) throughout the event and can’t wait to meet you there.
Come chat to our team about Pleo can do for you, your business and your customers.
Other Xerocon highlights
We won’t just be at our own stand though, expect to see Pleo t-shirts in all sorts of places at Xerocon.
Here are some of the key schedule highlights for us – see you there?
Major Tim Peake went to space. Do we need to say any more?
Gary Turner, Managing Director Xero UK and Ireland isn’t just a top mind within Xero, he has some fascinating thoughts on start-ups and the tools that help them grow fast.
Rachael Powell, Chief Customer and People Officer, Xero will be talking about mastering a customer-centric approach in your practice, something we love talking about with Pleo partners.
How Pleo works with Xero
We’ve written more about how Pleo and Xero work together, with details on how easy it is to match up your Pleo account to Xero.
When we first came to the UK, we knew how important this integration would be for customers.
So we’re delighted to see how many people love using both systems together – and can’t wait to talk to you about it at Xerocon.
See you there?
So get in touch if you’re planning on being at Xerocon.
We’d love to hear about what you’re hoping to get from the event, who you’re excited to meet and what Pleo can do for you.
