Inspire is back—live in Sarasota!

Inspire is back! Live and in person. And where better than sunny Florida?

Inspire brings us together—connecting us and elevating our thinking. We’re changing the game to bring you powerful sessions from an expanded lineup of thought leaders and influencers. Get valuable insights on industry trends, best practices, technology updates and more to help you run a better accounting firm in 2023.

It all begins at Inspire.

What is Inspire?

The Inspire conference is the ultimate event of the year for tax and accounting professionals nationwide. Join your peers and Rootworks staff to be at the forefront when it comes to industry trends, best practices, technology updates and so much more.

Enjoy a change of work venue and immerse yourself and your team in a collaborative and inspiring environment. Take advantage of the educational opportunity with separate tracks for partners/firm owners and staff—through a variety of breakout sessions, powerful keynote presentations, networking opportunities and more—all while earning valuable CPE!

Who should attend?

Small to mid-sized tax and accounting firms (including owners, partners and staff!) looking for inspiration toward building a better firm—the modern way.

Inspire is the event for you if you…

  • Crave hearing from the industry’s top thought leaders.

  • Need direction with automation and Smart Client Management.

  • Want to learn how to harness the power of data to better your firm’s future.

  • Care about your firm’s culture.

  • Are over burnout during grueling tax seasons.

  • Like earning CPE while having fun with the Rootworks team and your peers.

Where and when does Inspire take place?

Inspire will be held at The Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, FL, from November 29 through December 1, 2022. On top of early-bird savings, here’s another reason to register early: The Ritz-Carlton is welcoming Rootworks Inspire attendees back with a special room rate of only $279 a night when you reserve early.

With its Gulf Coast white sand beaches, dynamic dining experiences, spacious suites and guest rooms, and ample amenities, The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota is the perfect place for inspiration toward firm improvement. During event downtime, enjoy exclusive access to The Beach Club on Lido Key, an onsite spa, championship golf or tennis, or even a stroll around St. Armand’s Circle.

Leave Inspire feeling relaxed, refreshed and inspired to build a better business.
