Following the success of the recent Toronto event, the final Accounts Payable Leadership Conference of 2023 took place in Philadelphia last week. 

The IFOL team brought together a community of accounts payable, P2P and finance professionals and experts from across North America for their first ever face-to-face event in the US. 

It was a forum for delegates, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors to connect, share their experiences and learn how to create a more efficient, optimized and risk-aware accounts payable and P2P function

As customary for all IFOL events, the conference kicked off with a panel discussion on exclusive accounts payable trends and insights from our own independent research. 

The two-day agenda then focused on critical themes for finance teams, providing knowledge, expertise and proven tactics to empower delegates to drive change, achieve digital transformation and prepare for the next generation of accounts payable.

Agenda highlights include:

Panel discussions 

  • Keeping Up with Technology Shaping the Future of Finance 
  • Risk Reduction with The Fraud Advisory Panel 
  • KPIs – Which to track in 2023?

Keynote speakers

  • Debra R Richardson – Building an Elite, Analytical Accounts Payable Team
  • Monica Brooks – Mastering Change Management


It was wonderful for our community to meet face to face, and expand their network with peers and solution providers who can help overcome challenges.

What the delegates have said…

“I really like that they focus on AP and the issues we have; also, the diverse information that we are able to get which will improve the performance of our teams.”

“Every session was beneficial.”

“I had a wonderful time. I came away with greater knowledge from each session I attended.”

“The conference exceeded my expectations.”
