MBE Leeds stands sell out

The expo, which will supported by 40 exhibitors including the Financial Conduct Authority, is being held at Leeds Armouries on 22 April.

Other exhibitors will be seven building societies, 12 specialist lenders, retirement planning companies and industry bodies such as the Equity Release Council.

Mike Mikunda, from MBE, said: “We are very pleased that the Leeds Expo has been fully supported by the lending and finance industry.

“All the stands have now been sold which is a terrific achievement for our first show at this venue.

“It also demonstrates there is a keen and well informed market in Yorkshire and lenders and retirement planners are keen to speak to the regions brokers and IFAs.”

The event will feature a seminar programme where brokers, advisers and IFAs can earn Cll CPD points.

Keynote speakers at the event include Leeds Building Society chief executive Peter Hill and FCA mortgage sector manager Lynda Blackwell.

Other notable speakers will be Nationwide for Intermediaries head of corporate accounts Gary Salter, Kensington’s head of marketing communications Alex Hammond and Masthaven Finance sales director Richard Deacon.
