An attendee at Planful's Perform.

Planful’s Perform24 is our annual premier finance industry event featuring in-depth perspectives, customer stories, and industry trends surrounding financial performance management.

Perform24 will be held in San Diego from May 14 to 16. We’re pushing to go beyond your expectations by sharing insightful sessions and inspiring stories from industry experts, thought leaders, and dozens of Planful customers.

Register now to save your spot and prepare to learn, network, and grow.

Last year’s event attracted over 1,500 in-person and virtual attendees. It featured sessions and stories from Planful customers like Builders Mutual Insurance, Merchants Fleet, Rocket Software, AllCampus, Abbott Nutrition, and many more.

Not sure if Perform24 is right for you? We’ve got five reasons that prove why attending this year’s event is a surefire way to go beyond your expectations of what financial performance management can do for your organization.

Reason #1: Get more from collaborative financial performance management

Today’s progressive finance leaders and business decision-makers know financial performance management is a team sport.

Where Finance and Accounting bring the numbers, other functions like Marketing, HR, Operations, and Sales bring crucial business insights. Like any good team, everyone must work together to win.

At Perform24, you’ll learn how to break through the limitations of legacy finance software, legacy thinking, and legacy processes — everything holding back how you budget, forecast, model, and plan for success.

You’ll also walk away with tactics shared by industry pioneers and experts.

Even better, you’ll have ample opportunities to network with and learn from these leaders, peers, colleagues, and innovators.

Reason #2: Learn new tactics to solve your planning challenge

At this year’s event, you’ll learn how Planful customers are breaking new ground in planning and hear tips and tricks for getting the most from your Planful investment.

Planful customers can also register for hands-on training sessions led by our experts.

Because Perform24 is a worldwide finance industry event, you’ll meet today’s most innovative FP&A leaders from global enterprises, regional market leaders, and midsize powerhouses. Regardless of your industry, company size, role, or location, you’ll gain tips, tricks, and new techniques to return to your organization.

Our networking events are the perfect spaces to swap solutions to everyday challenges and provide insights on new and novel ways to use Planful. You can also expect to meet Planful customers, experts, and partners.

Reason #3: Explore the latest financial performance management tools

Perform24 will dive into the latest trends and breakthroughs in budgeting and planning, financial performance management, and related topics.

You’ll learn about AI and finance and understand how new AI/ML and generative AI technologies are already helping the Office of the CFO do more, do it faster, and do it more accurately.

Perform is also the perfect place to learn about the newest Planful features and product innovations before anyone else.

We’ve previously announced some of our most popular features, like extended AI capabilities within our Predict suite. You’ll be among the first to see how new features will advance your FP&A processes before competitors even know they exist.

Reason #4: Go hands-on during Planful product sessions

For many of us, the best way to learn is by doing. Perform24 will provide many opportunities to sharpen your skills with workshops and product training sessions (at an additional cost).

It’s not just your typical finance or accounting professional who benefits from a Planful product session. Anyone who deals with planning, budgeting, or forecasting should attend, including:

  • HR or People Ops professionals
  • Marketing professionals
  • Operations professionals

Planful’s product sessions are designed for multiple use cases. No matter what function you work within, a Planful product session allows you to work with a Planful expert to learn how to master the platform and transform your current planning approaches.

Reason #5: Earn continuing professional education (CPE) credits

In addition to our traditional conference offerings — including speaking engagements, networking events, and user groups — attendees can now earn continuing professional education (CPE) credits for select sessions.

Our sessions, hosted by trusted industry experts, are a cost-effective way to boost your skillset and earn credits simultaneously.

One session you can expect to see is “Leveraging Reporting Tools for More Robust Reports,” a live course designed for finance professionals.

In this session, attendees will learn to expand their Planful reporting capabilities. This session is intended for current Planful customers who are experienced Reporting users. Note that our CPE sessions are for in-person attendees only.

Check the Perform24 agenda for more information. We’ll be adding additional CPE-eligible sessions as the event draws closer.

Expect the best — and more — at Perform24

At Perform24, we’re offering new opportunities to better understand how financial performance management will help you reach peak financial performance.
