Last week I spoke with Byron Reese, the host of Gigaom’s “Voices in AI” podcast.

ExpensiCon has always been a unique conference experience, but attendees were in for a treat as they descended on the islands of Bora Bora. In addition to the lifelong memories being made, our curated list of guest speakers and roundtable discussions provided everyone with new outlooks and learnings — and that was before attendees had the chance to exchange their own tips and tricks! Though ExpensiCon ended last week, take a walk down memory lane with us as we fondly look back on the top 8 trends and takeaways from this once-in-a-lifetime partner retreat.

“ExpensiCon Maui was a fantastic experience that I thought would be hard to top, but can’t wait for Bora Bora! Two years ago in Maui, we learned about the history of Expensify and what made Expensify soar to the top of the industry. Those sessions were so helpful in shaping how we understand the industry, and I can’t wait expand on that through meeting and collaborating with with some of the best accounting and technology experts in the field again this year. I also can’t wait to learn about the new features and see the product roadmap so I can bring those back to our teams at GrowthForce!” Continue Reading…
