We were thrilled to return to this year’s NACFB Commercial Finance Expo, held in the NEC, Birmingham.
The expo is the UK’s largest trade show for commercial finance intermediaries. A great networking opportunity for our commercial team to meet with new and well-established lenders within the industry to further improve our knowledge and maintain our level of competence in this market, ultimately benefitting our clients.
Our commercial team enjoyed a great day of networking, building key relationships and catching up with familiar faces in the industry. The members’ lounge provided a good base for more in-depth “coffee catch-ups” with key partners. By the end of the day, we had secured a number of funding offers for a range of clients.
Haydn Thomas, Chief Commercial Officer at Cornerstone Finance Group, Said:
“It was great to see over 2500 attendees, an even bigger turnout than last year. We’ve enjoyed catching up with those we haven’t seen in person for a long time and, hopefully, we’ll see everyone again at the NACFB Awards later in the year. Overall, it was another hugely valuable experience, and I look forward to next year. “
The team also attended some interesting debates and gained fantastic insights from the wide range of speakers. This year’s event focused on three themes that initiated some meaningful discussions: the current global and domestic economy and its impact on the lending community; the obstacles holding back the UK’s ethnic minority-led SMEs; and the government’s proposed EPC rules.
