Front Events to launch Cardiff Expo

Front Events will launch a brand new event in Cardiff in June next year.

Financial Services Expo Cardiff will be held in City Hall.

Front Events already holds similar events in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

Front Events chairman John Malone says: “It has always been our intention to broaden the reach of FSE and since our launch we have been able to do that in both Manchester and Glasgow. Now the time has come to look west and support the growing and thriving advisory sector in both Wales and the South West of England. FSE Cardiff allows us to do just that and we have already been delighted with the response we have seen. Cardiff is a wonderful city and we are sure that advisers will be very willing to support a local event held at a wonderful venue, City Hall. 

“This is about recognising quality advice across that region and providing advisers with an event which delivers real value that they can take away and help develop their own propositions. We are sure there will be a great welcome in the hillside and vales for FSE Cardiff and are looking forward to developing the event in 2016.” 

FSE London takes place on 16 and 17 September at Old Billingsgate.
