Meet the Experts 2016 – regulatory developments in depth
18 November 2016
Held every year in November, Meet the Experts, Europe’s longest running and largest conference dedicated to financial reporting, is kicking off on Monday.
Now in its 18th year, Meet the Experts is the premier European conference for IFRS and regulatory developments, with almost 7,500 delegates having attended from over 60 countries. This year’s agenda is as packed as ever – so packed we’ve had to move the conference from its traditional one day format to two days of knowledge sharing!
Day one will cover updates from standard setters and regulators. Key economists, analysts and investors will also be sharing their views so we can build a picture of the wider economic and political outlook. Then day two will focus on the implementation of a number of technical accounting challenges. The main focus will be on preparers’ progress on implementing the new Revenue Standard (IFRS 15), the new Standard on Financial Instruments (IFRS 9) and the new Leases Standard (IFRS 16).
The conference is co-sponsored by the IFRS Foundation and PwC, and we have a number of high-profile speakers from the IASB, FRRP, EFRAG and PwC who will be sharing their views. Discussions covered are sure to be of interest, especially for those implementing the above standards for the first time.
If the above content sounds like it’d be of interest to you, we’ll be live tweeting insights covered over the two days which you can follow by searching #meettheexperts on Twitter. We’ll also be releasing a number of more in-depth articles concerning what was covered this year at a later date, so keep your eyes peeled!
