Show up to the show of the year

Mortgage Business Expo 2003 takes place at Earls Court 2 this week. The Expo is the UK&#39s largest residential mortgage show and host to the biggest gathering of lenders, packagers, clubs and networks ever seen. Supported by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries, the Council of Mortgage Lenders and the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association the Expo will have more exhibitors, more seminars and more specialist areas dedicated to improving your business in this fast-paced environment.

And with regulation by the Financial Services Authority less than a year away Expo 2003 will provide you with the ideal opportunity to find out more about the choices facing you.

Will you choose to become directly regulated by the FSA or to become an appointed representative of a principal company? Only by visiting the show will you get the facts that will help you make the right choice for your business, first hand.

Over 250 lenders, packagers, networks and clubs will be exhibiting, offering an extensive choice of new products – and a huge range of business opportunities.

This year&#39s show has two dedicated seminar programmes which are free and must not be missed. The mortgage seminars, organised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders, will address topical issues affecting your business. Hear from the FSA, the CML and leading industry figures on important topics from regulation to buy-to-let.

Running alongside the seminar programmes is the exciting Technology Zone. This is your opportunity to learn about the latest technology and sourcing systems available. The Exchange, Quay Software, Mortgage Brain, 1st Software, Thoroughbred Solutions and Webline will all be on hand to answer any questions and demonstrate – with live presentations – how they can save you time and money.

And remember, you can also come and visit the Mortgage Strategy team on stand C69. We look forward to seeing you there.
