2020 ACT Virtual Conference



May 18-20, 2020

The 2020 Annual ACT Conference is going VIRTUAL!

After careful review of current situations regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and ongoing conversations with ACT’s Board of Directors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel ACT’s  on-site 2020 Annual Tax Technology Conference originally scheduled for May 18-20, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego, CA. 

The health and safety of our members, speakers, attendees and employees is always our top priority and the primary factor in our decision. We understand and support the desire by many to limit travel and large group gatherings. Learning and professional development are regularly reported as the leading benefits of ACT membership and the ACT Annual Conference is a very popular event. To ensure that all members continue to have access to the quality learning opportunities they value, we will soon announce details for ACT 2020 Online, a three-day virtual conference to be held on the same dates of May 18-20th. In addition to e-learning sessions, the conference will also still include opportunities to network with and learn about solutions offered by our sponsors.This event will be at reduced rates to all ACT members allowing them to earn continuing professional education credits and will include the same content from the planned ACT 2020 Annual Conference agenda. Individuals who have already registered for this year’s live event will be contacted about refund opportunities.


We greatly appreciate the support, input, and understanding of our members, sponsors, business partners and friends. Times of challenge are opportunities for growth and understanding. We are excited for the chance to continue to serve you in your Tax and Tax Technology education needs as the only dedicated Tax Technology Association and hope to connect with many of you online at our approaching ACT 2020 virtual conference. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Hotel Information


To ensure that our members are able to keep up to speed on issues facing tax departments while still earning CPE, we are moving our in-person 2020 ACT Annual Conference to a virutal platform.


  • Join us from your home or office.
  • Actively participate in sessions with Q&A.
  • Join in on Vendor Expo sessions.


Vendor Expo Information
In general, conference attendees come to the conferences to learn how to better automate corporate tax functions and get ideas from their peers and industry experts. Our meetings are kept informal to create an open, friendly, educational environment.  For information on the Vendor Expo and other networking opportunities at the ACT Conferences, contact us Requests for booths at ACT conferences are available only to ACT Sponsors at this time.
Speaker Details and Forms
Attendees at our conferences suggest future topics and speakers. Attendee feedback is presented to the entire membership to get feedback on the key topics and issues that should be addressed at the next conference. Based on this feedback, the conference committee meets to discuss the feedback results and determine known speakers for the highest ranking topics. In general, speaker slots go to Regular members first, Sponsor members, and then to Associate members. Any remaining speaker slots are then offered to non-members. In some cases, a specific presenter will be desired (such as an author or professor). In this case, the program committee can go directly to the speaker. As a policy, ACT does not pay speakers, waive conference fees or reimburse for travel expenses. Speakers are invited as experts in their area to share information with peers on a professional level. All speakers are informed that the sessions (other than Vendor expo), must be educational in nature and not be a sales presentation.

Presentations are generally required to be submitted by the end of March each year to allow time for review, revisions from the Program Committee, and posting. If a speaker is unable to fulfill their obligations, a replacement speaker will be selected.
