Thomson Reuters SYNERGY Conference 2017

We invite you to join us in Nashville for ONESOURCE SYNERGY 2017 — a fantastic opportunity to learn, network, socialize and experience Southern hospitality at its finest. You’ll be able to attend workshops and learn from the best and brightest in the tax industry — plus you’ll spend four days earning CPE credit, getting hands-on training, learning about technology updates and being inspired by tax and technology experts.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"What I’ve liked about SYNERGY the most is the chance to talk to other users, and interact with it. [Thomson Reuters] actually pulls different users that are about the same level together to talk, offline, and that’s been very helpful and I’ve really enjoyed that."

— Ford Motor Company

"The sessions are great and well organized. Offering hands-on sessions enhances the attendee’s knowledge and allows for a true testing environment. Also, the conference allows for participants to network."

— Fiduciary Trust Company International

"The course content was valuable. The opportunity at the Innovation Labs and interactive sessions to see prototypes of the future software and give feedback was a great opportunity."

— BP

"I always walk away from SYNERGY with new ideas or better ways of doing things to implement at work which has been extremely valuable over the years."

— Verizon

"Great networking; wonderful insight to the suite of tax applications; opportunity to provide user insight to innovative ideas; impressive conference chain."
