The year’s largest conference for treasury and finance professionals is almost upon us. AFP 2017 runs from October 15-18 at the San Diego Convention Center, and will feature more than 125 educational sessions, 20 hours of networking events and an estimated 6,500 people.
With so many sessions and activities to choose from, how are treasury professionals supposed to optimize their time at the show?
Fortunately, Kyriba not only has an office in America’s Finest City, we’ve had a major presence at the AFP show for years. Here are our expert recommendations for those looking to fill their time with valuable content, fun activities and really good brew.
