Expo Manchester to focus on commercial finance

Mortgage Business Expo Manchester will focus on commercial finance, organisers reveal today.

The Expo, to be held May 14 and 15 at Manchester Central, will focus on brokers and advisers looking to explore commercial business opportunities now available.

These opportunities will be discussed in the commercial property finance seminar theatre, in the Commercial Finance Zone, during four sessions each day.

Presentations will include How to make the most of bridging finance, An introduction to commercial finance and The correct use of specialist commercial lending, along with How to be a successful commercial finance broker.

Adam Tyler, chief executive at the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers, says: “We were very impressed by the success of the Commercial Property Zone at the Earls Court Expo in London last November, and we are delighted to be involved in setting up a similar project at the Manchester exhibition.

“Current market conditions mean more and more brokers are looking to new sources of business and, specifically, writing commercial finance as part of the service they offer their clients.”

He adds: “Both the zone and the seminar programme offer the perfect introduction to anyone thinking of adding commercial finance as a new string to their bow.”

Mortgage Business Expo Manchester will also include two full seminar programmes organised by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries and the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

The International Property Investment Pavilion will also feature.
