The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) has announced that its conference ‘AICPA and CIMA Engage’ will return this year as a hybrid event.
The event, which is designed for accounting and finance professionals, takes place both online and onsite at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on July 26-29, 2021.
Events include an all-virtual June 8 keynote presentation, “Exploring New Frontiers: An Evening of Innovative Ideas,” with Virgin Group founder Richard Branson and Adam Steltzner, chief engineer for NASA’s Mars Perseverance rover.
In addition, shared sessions with the national practice management conference hosted by the CPA Firm Management Association (CPAFMA) will also be available.
To ensure safety, the conference will follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations throughout the conference space, with socially distanced facilities, mask requirements and routine cleaning of the site.
Todd Helton, senior director of meetings and conferences at AICPA, said: “Engage 2021 will feature more than 200 speakers, an impressive exhibit space and ample networking opportunities, available to all attendees, either in person or virtually.”
“No other event comes close to the breadth or depth of specialized programming we offer to CPAs, management accountants and finance professionals.”
