CNH INDUSTRIAL, DISCOVERY, ENERGY TRANSFER, FRANKLIN TEMPLETON, HERSHEY’S, MOLSON COORS AND ZENDESK AMONG 40+ CUSTOMERS SPEAKING AT INTHEBLACK 2018

'Big 4’, Genpact and SAP also on tap to discuss compliance, data and process integrity and accounting and finance automation at BlackLine annual user conference

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 29, 2018BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL), a leading provider of financial control and automation solutions that enable Continuous Accounting, is hosting its annual global user conference next month in Las Vegas. With an overarching theme of ‘Trust is in the Balance’, InTheBlack 2018: The Accounting & Finance Innovation Summit (ITB 2018) will focus on best practices for accelerating the financial close while ensuring the highest levels of trust and accuracy in ‘the numbers’ as companies increasingly seek to transform their accounting and finance organizations.

The 4-day conference will feature speakers from more than 40 BlackLine customer companies including CNH Industrial, Discovery, Energy Transfer, Franklin Templeton Investments, The Hershey Company, Molson Coors and Zendesk, with Finance & Accounting (F&A) professionals from each sharing best practices learned by automating critical F&A processes using BlackLine’s cloud platform.

With intensifying global competitive pressures, a rapidly changing regulatory landscape, the growing complexity of financial processes, and heightened demand for clear visibility into balance sheet data, Finance and Accounting must reconcile ever-increasing data volumes. In a world of uncertainty, it is vital that the right automated checks and controls are in place to verify data and process integrity and address potential issues prior to public reporting. A key theme at this year’s conference will be how automating and streamlining manual, spreadsheet-based processes can help improve data accuracy, visibility and control, instilling greater internal trust, confidence and accountability levels, reducing risk and ultimately impacting key decision-making.

Additional presentations will be given by thought leaders from Deloitte, EY, Genpact, KPMG and SAP, along with BlackLine CEO Therese Tucker and other BlackLine experts. In addition, best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell will deliver a keynote speech, as will former Enron CFO Andrew Fastow who, having broken the trust of his colleagues and investors, will discuss the profound mistakes he made and how similar bad decisions can cause great harm to stakeholders. Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow will provide entertainment performing live on-stage during the event.

In conjunction with ITB 2018, BlackLine also is hosting a Giving Back Day in which customers, partners and employees will come together, partnering with local food bank Three Square. The group will help put together boxed lunches for local schools and also pack and bag produce for families in need in the area.

ITB 2018 is expected to draw a global community of 1,500 attendees with more than 200 speakers spanning 150 sessions. ITB 2018 will be held Monday to Thursday, Nov. 12th to 15th, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, with Giving Back Day on Thursday, the 15th. For more information, go here.
