c2-financial says it will be spending the money it would have spent at this year’s Mortgage Business Expo on intermediaries instead.Justin Caffrey, managing director of c2, says: “The Mortgage Expo has become less relevant to us this year and we find it to be an unnecessary ex-pense. We will shortly be announcing a groundbreaking incentive to intermediaries whereby we will be looking at ways in which we can return that budget back to them.” Daniel Nwaokolo, show manager for the Mortgage Business Expo London, has thanked c2 for its support since the launch of the event. He says: “I hope the Expo has contributed in some way to c2’s record profits and success over its four years exhibiting with us.” This year’s Mortgage Business Expo is taking place on November 15 and 16 at Earls Court in London, with an expected 230 exhibitors – an increase of 19% on last year.
