Expensify, a payments provider, announced that George Clooney will be the headline speaker at ExpensiCon, which the company calls an invite-only, all-expenses-paid conference that brings together innovators, thought leaders, disruptors and transformers of the accounting industry to discuss the future of the ever-changing landscape of finance and accounting. The event will be held in May in Puglia, Italy.

Clooney, an award-winning actor, businessman and philanthropist, will join 100 accounting thought leaders at ExpensiCon to share his perspective on building multiple businesses and engaging in projects that encourage social good, aligning with Expensify’s own work in corporate social responsibility with its nonprofit, Expensify.org.

ExpensiCon, according to the announcement, will facilitate thought leader roundtable discussions, networking opportunities, strategy workshops and VIP events for partner accounting firms, bringing together principals in the accounting and fintech space to share their knowledge.

Previous ExpensiCons in Bora Bora and Maui included attendees from PwC, Deloitte, BDO, CLA, Baker Tilly and EisnerAmper, as well as keynote speakers such as Travis Kalanick of Uber, René Lacerte of Bill.com, Zach Nelson of NetSuite and Rod Drury of Xero.
