The Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) held at London Barbican on 13th October has been hailed a huge success by exhibitors and visitors alike. Figures show that attendance was up 11% on the 2015 Expo.
The Expo attracted a large number of high quality brokers and IFAs from the south and the show stands were kept busy all day. Exhibitors reported that they had excellent footfall and made high numbers of new contacts. With a plenty of opportunities to network and engage with potential customers, the Expo was seen as a genuine benefit to their businesses.
The seminars and panel debates also proved to be a big hit, with the MBE seminars theatre full and the Aldermore Theatre had many delegates standing in the aisles listening to presentations on cordless headphones. With expert industry figures participating in several panel debates there was standing room only as brokers and IFAs fired questions on the current state of the specialist finance markets at the panel members.
"Feedback from speakers and delegates has been extremely positive with exhibitors saying the Expo added real value to their businesses "
Mike Mikunda, from MBE commented: “We were extremely pleased at the increase in visitors this year which I believe reinforces the view that after 16 years the event is still seen as the most important networking event in the calendar. Feedback from speakers and delegates has also been extremely positive with exhibitors saying the Expo added real value to their businesses as well being particularly impressed with the quality of the enquiries they received.
“The CPD seminars and panel Q&A sessions were also more popular than ever, with a full theatre for the sessions. We are truly delighted with the result and now look forward to another great event at the Leeds Armouries on 26th April 2017.”
The Expo was supported by over 50 industry exhibitors including building societies, specialist lenders, as well as equity release companies and industry bodies such as the FCA and the Equity Release Council.
