Quickbooks cancels QB Connect

QB Connect London, the Intuit QuickBooks flagship UK conference was cancelled this week over fears over coronavirus.

The conference, which attracts around 1,500 accountants, was due to start today, but in an email to delegates QuickBooks said: “Given the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 and the size and scale of the QuickBooks Connect London event, we are cancelling out of an abundance of caution.”

It went on: “This was a difficult decision, but health and safety of our employees, customers, partners and communities are out top priorities.”
