UK's top Expo heads North: Register now for MBE 2012


The Mortgage Business Expo has announced that visitor registration is now open for the Manchester Expo taking place on Wednesday 23rd May at the Lancashire County Cricket Club, Manchester.

During the MBE Manchester 2012, visitors will be able to talk to lenders, access over 40 key suppliers and source unique funding solutions to assess for their clients. This year’s event is set to offer unrivalled access to residential and buy-to-let lenders actively lending and supporting mortgage intermediaries in the North of England and beyond. 

James Prosser, Show Director for MBE Manchester, commented: “We look forward once again to welcoming the industry to Manchester MBE in what is gearing up to be an even busier event than last year.” 

Steve McColl, Director of Soho Corporate, said: “I’m excited about the prospect of attending this year’s MBE. It is a great networking opportunity, not only for meeting other brokers but also key funding partners. The MBE is always very relaxed and not too formal – it is a good old-fashioned networking event.

“I’m also going to be looking forward to having a few beers the night before. We had a pretty big night out last year!”

MBE Manchester will once again host a series of free seminars hosted by the industry’s trade association, Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI), and will include sessions on the latest trends and forecasts.

Terry Pritchard, of PWF Commercial Finance, commented: “Love it or hate it the Manchester Expo is getting closer (May 23rd) and James Prosser and his team have done what appears to be another great job getting a diverse mix of businesses together. It is still the best networking event in the North and although the bias has changed to more specialist lending it is still the premier event to attend as a broker. I hope that we can get as many people as possible through the door this year so that those still looking for opportunity realise that there is plenty to be offered working with the right partners.”

Arron Bardoe, of Temple Capital Finance, said, “There’s always one thing worth attending for and even if the event helps you place just one case it’s worthwhile. 

“A lot of brokers are unaware of the opportunities surrounding bridging finance but with criteria changing with a lot of lenders, the MBE gives them the exposure and provides greater access for brokers.

“In some cases you can only place a deal by hunting out a lender; some don’t tend to market themselves as much as others, so the Expo provides a good opportunity.” 

Registration is free and visitors can register in advance via the MBE website
