The World of Open Account is in the first place a digital community. But we believe that all of us are looking forward to being able to meet off-line, physically and for real. To network together to discuss business opportunities. To share our insights and opinions. To be updated on trends and innovation from Industry colleagues and thought leaders.

We start with an icebreaker reception on Monday 19th of September. Tuesday 20th is a full day of conference. The convention ends on Tuesday evening with a networking dinner.

The WOA convention is different from any other conference:

  • Short enough to fit into your busy schedule
  • Long enough to give you the opportunity  to meet everyone
  • Short presentations that will really inspire
  • Lots of interaction, Q&As, discussions (after all, in the first place WOA is and remains a community)
  • No heavy tourism (because you are here for business), but sufficient time for socializing and networking in a friendly atmosphere
  • Less than half the price of most one-day conferences
  • But lots of content that matters and a personalized approach for an unforgettable event 

Main Conference Hosting Partners:

We are extremely grateful for the support and facilitation of our founder German Members A.B.S. Global Factoring, Bette Westenberger Brink and efcom who are acting as joint principal sponsors and co-organizers of the event.
