Attendance up 11% at MBE London

The Mortgage Business Expo (MBE) held at London Barbican on 11th October has been hailed a huge success by exhibitors and visitors alike. Figures show that attendance was up 11% on the 2016 Expo.

The Expo attracted a large number of high quality brokers and IFAs from all over the UK and the show stands were kept busy all day. Exhibitors reported that they had excellent footfall and made high numbers of new contacts. With a plenty of opportunities to network and engage with potential customers, the Expo was seen as a genuine benefit to their businesses.

The seminars and panel debates also proved to be a big hit, both in the MBE theatre and the Aldermore Theatre had many delegates standing in the aisles listening to presentations on cordless headphones. With expert industry figures participating in several panel debates on the buy-to-let market and equity release, there was a tremendous level of debate as brokers and IFAs fired questions at the panel members. 

The Expo was supported by over 70 industry exhibitors including building societies, specialist lenders, as well as equity release companies and industry bodies such as the Society of Mortgage Professionals and the Equity Release Council.

The next MBE Expos for 2018 will be at Leeds Armouries on 25th April and at the Barbican on 10th October.

Mike Mikunda, from MBE commented: “We were extremely pleased at the increase in visitors this year which I believe reinforces the view that after 17 years the event is still seen as the most important networking event in the calendar. Feedback from speakers and delegates has also been extremely positive with exhibitors saying the Expo added real value to their businesses as well being particularly impressed with the quality of the enquiries they received.

“The CPD seminars and panel Q&A sessions were also more popular than ever and we are truly delighted with the result. We are committed to the continuing development of MBE so that it stays in tune with the needs of the industry and so look out for some exciting new innovations for 2018. We now look forward to another great event at the Leeds Armouries on 25th April.”

Charles McDowell, Commercial Director, Mortgages at Aldermore says: “I am delighted with the success of the Aldermore Theatre at this year’s Mortgage Business Expo. We wanted to help as many brokers as possible on the recent changes to the buy-to-let market though our seminar program with views from across the industry. We understand that these changes will take a while to embed. We are committed to supporting the intermediary market and will be making the presentations and Q and A session available online so brokers can reflect on what the changes mean for them and their landlord clients.”
