Visitor registrations are now open for the Financial Services Expo 2013 (FSE).
It is to be held on 1-2 October at Old Billingsgate in central London.
The event is the brainchild of Front Events which is headed up by James Prosser who previously organised the Mortgage Business Expo for a number of years.
As well as a range of lending and industry exhibitors, the event will also play host to a seminar programme put together by the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries, the Intermediary Mortgage Lender’s Association and IFA Centre. The programme will consist of training, regulatory and lending updates enabling attendees to fulfil their CPD requirements.
In addition, Mortgage Advice Bureau will be hosting a series of protection-led sessions.
FSE will be split into seven zones: Mortgages; Commercial; Protection; Distribution; Legal; Technology and Alternative Lending.
NatWest Intermediary Solutions and Santander are two of the latest names to join a roster that already includes the likes of Barclays/Woolwich, BM Solutions, Halifax, Nationwide and Virgin Money.
Prosser said: “Since first unveiling FSE in June, the team have received plenty of encouraging feedback from key industry figures and visitor registrations now opening is another exciting phase of the gestation period.
“2013 has represented something of a crossroads for advisers what with RDR being implemented, the FCA assuming regulatory control of the market and MMR looming ever closer, so it feels like the perfect time to launch an event that caters for intermediaries across the financial services sphere.
“The wealth of exhibitors and sponsors wanting to become involved with FSE proves that the industry was primed for a new type of event and we are confident this reaction will be mirrored by strong registration numbers.
“Delegates can be assured that attending the event will not only afford them the unrivalled opportunity to meet the best of breed providers across a number of sectors, but also the chance to network with their peers to discuss the evolution of the adviser’s role in the evolving economic landscape.
“The seminar programme due to be unveiled next month also promises to be educational and informative, offering guidance in these changing times. With just under two months until doors open on the first ever FSE; don’t delay – register today.”
