What’s New

Vertex continually innovates our products—and our annual conference. Each year, we introduce new and different approaches to deliver even more value to attendees.

This year, we are expanding the number of sessions about Vertex Cloud, including sessions that explore implementation considerations and deployment options. We’ve added new sessions for IT professionals. We’re also introducing a Communication Services Special Interest Group designed to provide a forum to discuss key trends in tax legislation affecting communication service providers, current tax issues, and how Vertex Indirect Tax O Series can help. In addition, there will be sessions to address the latest trends in technology, including blockchain and robotics, and how these leading edge ideas may change the role of the tax professional.

New Sessions Added for IT Professionals

Corporate tax is in constant motion. Changing compliance requirements. Disruptive business models. And growing demand for strategic support. You can’t stop change, but you can help lead through it.

We’ve added new sessions for IT professionals where users and developers can share ideas about how to improve current processes, evolve tax automation and better manage and leverage tax data. From automated deployments to regression testing, these new sessions are an opportunity to share challenges and explore compelling strategies and solutions:
