The Ashton Gate complex, part of Bristol City football ground is to host a new Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) for the first time in July next year, organiser Clarion Events has announced.
The new event in Bristol is an addition to the finance calendar, held on 6 July 2016 and will attract mortgage brokers, finance introducers and IFAs in the South West, as it is well connected to places such as Bath, Reading, Cheltenham, Exeter, Bournemouth and Southampton.
Mike Mikunda, from MBE said: “After the success of our expos in recent years, we really wanted to give more finance professionals the opportunity to engage directly with lenders, service providers and the organisations that set policy and regulation across their industries.
“Bristol is a real hub of financial activity and very well connected for brokers and IFAs in the south west. We’re expecting this to be well supported by exhibitors and delegates alike and be of real value as they make new contacts and plan for future growth.
“With so many changes in key finance sectors, the informative seminars at MBE Bristol will be beneficial for brokers and IFAs and they can earn valuable CPD points on the day.”
MBE has been running events in London for over 15 years, and in April this year launched another expo in Leeds at the Royal Armouries.
The Bristol edition will feature a schedule of seminars by leading industry figures providing market analysis and trends. Delegates can also speak to key product and service providers covering finance for buy to let, secured loans, commercial funding, equity release and bridging finance.
The next edition of MBE takes place at the Barbican, London on 7 October.
