Expo assembles array of industry experts for seminar sessions


The Manchester Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) 2012 has announced the full content of its seminar programme which has been put together by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI).

The expo has also just received Continuous Professional Development (CPD) event accreditation from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), which means that delegates are now able to include their attendance at the event as part of their CII CPD requirement should they consider it relevant to their professional development needs.

James Prosser, MBE Manchester 2012 Show Director, said: “We have assembled an array of industry experts to tackle a variety of subjects including the current state of the housing market and the economy, how equity release fits into this landscape, an update from a variety of lender representatives, a look at the protection sector and a seminar detailing the progress that is being made in tackling mortgage fraud. Along with over 40 exhibitors already signed up, MBE Manchester promises to be one of the must-attend events for advisers and intermediaries in the North West.”
