Inspired by the enormous and very positive feedback from all parties, I decided to drive this idea further and go the next step: The 2nd European EXPP Summit will be held in the heart of Berlin, Germany on September 25-27, Although Germany itself represents a potentially huge market for E-Invoicing, we have taken the European path in inviting experts from Norway to Portugal and from Ireland to Russia.

At the European EXPP Summit you will hear many success stories from prominent companies of all sizes telling how the Procure-to-Pay process and the Financial-Supply-Chain have been significantly optimised. These call attention to the different possibilities for implementing E-Invoicing and harmonising legislation in Europe. Cross-border activities are a major topic lively discussed at the European EXPP Summit. Meet and network with CFOs, managers of A/R and A/P, controlling and invoice management, market-insiders, experts, pioneers and 'newbies'. Key solution and service providers will demonstrate their competences in the large exhibition area and will give you an excellent overview of how large, medium-size and small companies of all industries can take advantage of E-Invoicing and E-Documents.
