Mortgage Business Expo London a Total Success

The Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) held at the Barbican London on 7th October has been hailed a total success by exhibitors and visitors alike.

 

The Expo attracted a large number of high quality brokers, landlords and IFAs from the south of England giving exhibitors excellent footfall and opportunities to engage with high numbers of new potential business partners to help grow their businesses.

 

The full schedule of seminars, which are Cll CPD accredited, were hugely successful, with large groups of delegates queueing to get a seat for many of the topical and relevant presentations. The seminars included the Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD) which was covered by Skipton Intermediaries, Barclays and Shakespeare Martineau LLP. Proposed changes in the buy to let market was also well attended with a talk by Aldermore and Masthaven Finance presented on bridging finance while Lendinvest covered the rise in alternative lending.

 

Mike Mikunda, from MBE commented: “We are extremely pleased with the magnificent support from our sponsors and exhibitors. The Expo was a total triumph with delegates who found the mix of exhibitors useful to help grow their business and huge numbers attended the informative seminars on issues that are important to their finance sectors.

 

“We are truly delighted with the turn out and now look forward to more great events in 2016 including Leeds on 20th April and Bristol on 6th July.”

 

Exhibitors reported plenty of opportunities to network and engage with new intermediaries and gave some feedback on the Expo:

 

James Boyles of Sort Refer: “Good day as always with over a hundred registrants on the stand. A very successful day.”

 

Andrew Richardson of IFA Conveyancing: “Fantastic event with a high number of brokers in attendance.”

Sonny Gosai of master broker Clever Lending: ”The MBE this year has been an amazing success for Clever Lending and the industry as a whole. We never imagined there’d be so many people attending today but it’s fruitful and very worthwhile for our business.”

 

Libbi Martin of Shepherds Friendly: “It was an extremely productive Expo and we met plenty of advisers who were keen to find out more about Shepherds Friendly and the plans we offer, especially the pending launch of our updated Income Protection plan.”
