With only a little more than a week left until AFP 2019 in Boston, it’s time to start planning for what sessions and events you want to fill your calendar with.
Four days isn’t a lot of time to see and experience everything that the year’s largest conference for treasury and finance professionals has to offer — that’s why we’ve put together a list of the top five things you need to see, attend and do in Boston from October 20-23!
Here are some of our top picks for what to do at AFP 2019:
1. Have a Laugh
Don’t forget to make time to relax, laugh and CELEBRATE! This year Kyriba is hosting party that is sure to knock your socks off. Join us at Laugh Boston comedy club on Monday, October 21 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET for drinks, networking and of course a few laughs.

Puppies? You heard right! This year, AFP will have a Puppy Park at the conference. Miss the furry friend you left at home? Need to relieve some stress? Just want to take a break and pet some pups? AFP has you covered. And if you happen to fall in love while you’re there, these pups will be up for adoption.

5. Learn All About the Industry-leading Initiative to Activate Liquidity
Can’t get enough during the regular sessions? Kyriba is hosting live, in-booth presentations on the following topics: “What is Active Liquidity,” “Become a Best Practice Treasury Team,” “Protect Yourself from Currency Volatility” and “Stamping Out Payments Fraud.”
