This year’s conference will take place at the world-famous and legendary Beverly Hilton – home of the Golden Globes award ceremony – in Beverly Hills, from September 9-11. It will feature a keynote speech from Chrome River CEO and co-founder, Alan Rich, and new this year will also have a distinguished guest keynote speaker.
The theme for CASCADE 2019 is “Future-Ready with Chrome River.” The event will enable attendees to learn about Chrome River’s upcoming product features, gain insight into best practices around expense and invoice automation, and network with peers and partners in the expense and invoice management industry to enable future-readiness. The agenda will be packed with general sessions to help you maximize your investment in the Chrome River suite of solutions, as well as participate in industry-specific breakout sessions. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one interaction with Chrome River’s product experts to get an even deeper understanding of the solution and the value it can bring to their organization.
We like to have fun too. CASCADE 2019 will feature an awards ceremony and entertainment to highlight the outstanding achievements of our customer community and to provide a social environment to support networking. The connections made at CASCADE 2019 will last well beyond the conference.
New for 2019, we are asking customers to submit proposals to present to other attendees. These can either be functional, technical or executive in nature, and can take the form of 15-minute TED Talk-style presentations, 30-minute panel discussions, or full 50-minute presentations. Not only will these presentations allow customers to showcase their organization’s use of Chrome River’s solutions, but all attendees who have their proposal accepted will receive free entry to the conference.
Registration is now open, and attendees will have until May 31 to qualify for the early-bird rate. Generous discounts of up to 20% are available for groups of more than three attendees from each organization. Group-rate bookings at the Beverly Hilton will be available until August 26. These special discount rates will be available for stays from September 8 to September 12, so why not take the opportunity to add some downtime to your trip, and experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Beverly Hills and Hollywood!
If you’re still on the fence about attending, the CASCADE website gives you a number of compelling reasons why you need to need to be there.
We will share further details about the agenda and presenters in the coming months, and we look forward to seeing you in Beverly Hills!

Our choice of Chrome River EXPENSE was made in part due to the very user-friendly interface, easy configurability, and the clear commitment to impactful customer service – all aspects in which Chrome River was the clear winner. While Chrome River is not as large as some of the other vendors we considered, we found that to be a benefit and our due diligence showed that it could support us as well as any large players in the space, along with a personalized level of customer care.
We are excited to be able to enforce much more stringent compliance to our expense guidelines and significantly enhance our expense reporting and analytics. By automating these processes, we will be able to free up AP time formerly spent on manual administrative tasks, and enhance the role by being much more strategic.
