Have you looked at the QuckBooks Connect list of sponsors lately? I just looked and there are close to 90 companies listed on the site as of today (October 19)! There were plenty of familiar names and a couple of dozen I had not seen nor heard of before visiting the site. You can check out the complete list yourself by clicking HERE.
Avalara is a Main Street Sponsor this year at QuickBooks Connect. In keeping with their tagline
of “less taxing, more relaxing,” look for their one-of-a-kind tiki booth right on the main drag where they will be demoing their automated sales tax compliance solutions which integrate with both QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online. The compnay will also be giving away a limited supply of SALT-in-a-Box kits, which provide accountants and bookkeepers with a unique suite of tools that enable them to engage in meaningful conversations with their clients on the subject of state and local tax (SALT). If that was not enough, they will also have the highly-sought-after “Sales and Use Tax Compliance For Dummies” books on hand, along with plenty of the latest hip orange AvaSwag. Attendees are encouraged to stop by to get more information on becoming an Avalara partner, and to hear the latest opportunities and rewards for current partners.
Perhaps the MOST EXCITING news is that Avalara, TSheets, Expensify, Insperity and Receipt Bank are hosting an "after-party" on Tuesday night (November 3). Party Hearty is a free evening event with a raffle benefiting the American Heart Association. There will be an OPEN BAR, DJ and BIG RAFFLE PRIZES. The party starts at 9:30pm at M Asian Fusion Restaurant and Lounge, which is walking distance from the convention center and hotels. Visit any of these booths to purchase raffle tickets and activate your pass to the party: Avalara, TSheets, Expensify, Insperity or Receipt Bank. Raffle prizes will be drawn throughout the night, so don't miss it!
