CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/13 -- PayStream Advisors, Inc., a leading independent research and advisory firm headquartered in South End, is hosting their annual conference INNOVATE '13: The Purchase to Pay Summit for Accounts Payable, Procurement and Finance professionals at the Hilton Charlotte City Center on September 16 - 18.
"Two years ago we hosted our annual conference in Kansas City and we were comparing everything to past events we had done in Charlotte. Kansas City had charm, but it's just not the Queen City," said Brad Josephson, Conference Producer at PayStream Advisors. "When we evaluated locations for this year's event, I had a strong desire to bring PayStream's conference back home and help support the local hotels and restaurants here. You can't beat Charlotte's southern hospitality."
PayStream's premiere Purchase to Pay conference brings together leaders in Accounts Payable, Procurement, Finance and Supply Chain to speak to the automation, collaboration and operational challenges that professionals face on a daily basis. This tightly focused Procure to Pay event offers case studies, panel discussions, keynote sessions and the industry's first Procure to Pay certification program.
PayStream INNOVATE '13: The Purchase to Pay Summit is attended by leading companies from around the world. PayStream Advisors is expecting over 250 people to attend this year's event. As part of the Summit, PayStream has scheduled a Dine Around Charlotte dinner event where sponsors take delegates out to dinner at one of five area restaurants. This year the restaurants include 5Church, Bentley's on 27, Blue Restaurant & Bar, Mimosa Grill, and Rooster's Restaurant.
"The Summit's Dine Around Charlotte is always a big hit. It gets sponsors and Summit delegates out of the hotel and on the town," said Managing Director of PayStream Advisors, Henry Ijams. "When we host the Summit in Charlotte, the feedback from conference attendees is phenomenal. They love the atmosphere and how easy it is to get around, especially commuting to and from the airport to Uptown. The new restaurants and the development of an entertainment district have made Charlotte very attractive as a meeting destination."
Companies with financial operations in the Charlotte metro have attended past conferences, including Ally Bank, American Red Cross, Bank of America, Carolinas HealthCare System, Ingersoll Rand and Snyder's Lance. In an effort to encourage companies from North Carolina to attend, PayStream is offering a special discount of $500 off the regular registration cost and special discounted day passes.
