Mortgage Business Expo’s Northern Event, MBE North, whose next event takes place on March 22nd at its new home at Manchester Central, has announced that demand for exhibitor stands has been particularly positive.
Over 40 firms have so far confirmed their attendance with another 20 due to make final decisions to attend over the next few weeks.
Exhibitors who have signed up so far already represent a broad cross section of the lending industry, especially in specialist finance and protection. They include Barclays, UTB, Legal & General, Pepper, Yorkshire BS, Aldermore, Interbay Commercial, Keystone, Landbay and Berkeley Alexander, among others.
In addition, MBE will be hosting the FIBA Annual Conference, which also means a number of their specialist finance lenders and service providers will also be in attendance.
MBE Director, Mike Mikunda commented, “We are delighted with the response so far from exhibitors. Besides the excellent start to the year in the lending market and the desire to engage with intermediaries, our move back to Manchester is being seen as providing a much more accessible venue for brokers and therefore a better opportunity for exhibitors to meet more intermediaries.”
Mike added, “There is still time for more businesses to talk to us about exhibiting and seeing what an investment at MBE in Q1 could mean for their business prospects in the rest of 2022.”
