So much has happened in 10 years that we could be forgiven for thinking we are operating in a new industry.
There have been huge peaks and troughs and I am reminded of the phrase whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger when I look back over the past few years.
But there is much to be positive about. This year’s Expo is on November 16 and 17 at London’s Olympia and we are once again supported by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries, which is offering a free seminar programme to attendees.
Brokers will be able to hear industry experts’ vision in key areas such as the future of the economy, what to look for in a network, lead generation and accessing business streams such as equity release and buy-to-let.
The exhibition has grown substantially in recent years. A considerable number of lenders are exhibiting including major players such as Barclays, Northern Rock and Nationwide for Intermediaries.
There are also some 100 other exhibitors that are active in the residential and commercial sectors, plus bridging lenders, technology firms and networks.
Our 10th year is an opportune time to look back at what has happened to the industry, but also to understand the opportunities available to grow this recovering market.
I urge all brokers to register for their free place at www.mortgagebusinessexpo.com.
