The Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM), a business unit within Diversified Communications, has announced the dates and location for the Fall 2014 Accounts Payable Conference & Expo: Oct. 26-29 at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. IOFM’s event will feature representatives from high-profile national and global organizations delivering presentations and workshops essential to accounts payable practitioners’ professional development. Attendees will have the opportunity to become AP Certified at AP Expo, whose exhibit floor will be host to many AP-focused vendors. Anyone who registers for AP Expo Fall 2014 by June 30th will save $400.
“For several years the AP Expo has expanded significantly,” said RD Whitney, executive director, IOFM. “The pace of growth, in fact, compelled us to add a spring event last year. Having just concluded this year’s spring event, in Washington, D.C., we again see testimonial after testimonial underscoring an inescapable fact: AP Expo’s content resonates. We look forward to returning to Las Vegas, in the fall, for what is sure to be the most successful AP Expo yet.”
