7 Reasons Why Elite Americas 2020 is a “Must Attend” Event
Procure-to-pay executives from some of the world’s largest companies are gathering in Carlsbad, California, March 1-3 for Elite Americas—an event with a stellar reputation that draws top talent, year after year. If you haven’t registered to attend, the time to act is now. And here are seven compelling reasons why:
1. Exposure to P2P innovators
Most Elite Americas sessions will be led by innovators from the world’s largest accounts payable and financial shared services teams, including Expedia, PepsiCo, Verizon, UPS—and more. You’ll hear first-hand about their success strategies and valuable lessons learned.
2. Relevant topics
Informative, interactive sessions will address many of the hottest trends in procure-to-pay. Examples include the rising role of robotics and automation, how to get more out of a supplier portal, new defenses against sophisticated payment fraud, and using artificial intelligence to optimize working capital.
3. A focus on outcomes
We know your time is valuable. That’s why each Elite conference is designed to deliver information you can immediately use to benefit your business. You’ll even walk away with global benchmarking results that can help you gauge how your processes and performance stack up against industry peers.
4. Networking opportunities
You’ll get lots of opportunities to network with other procure-to-pay experts. In fact, many attendees say they develop professional relationships during Elite that deliver long-lasting benefits. They have trusted colleagues they can contact for informed perspectives on important issues and opportunities.
Our keynote speaker Keni Thomas, a country music artist and former US Army Ranger, will share the real-life story behind the book and movie “Black Hawk Down.” While on a mission in Somalia, his battalion endured the worst urban combat seen by U.S. troops since World War II. Keni captivates audiences with his story of the extraordinary individuals who fought to bring each other home. And he uses those battlefield experiences to drive home the importance of outstanding leadership at every level of every successful organization.
6. A great (and convenient) location
Our headquarters for Elite Americas 2020 is the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, California. Located just 32 miles north of San Diego International Airport, the 200-acre property is home to a five-star luxury boutique hotel, a golf club and spa.
7. Time to Explore
We’ll arrange for you to play golf on a US Open championship course, take a tour of a safari park, visit the USS Midway museum or take a fitness walk along the Batiquitos Lagoon. At the end of our Elite event, you can even join us as we give back to a local charity, the San Diego USO.
