convention for members in Monaco from September 26 to 28.

Bankhall, which claims to have a 25 per cent share of the IFA market,

expects that more than 800 IFAs and their partners will attend the

three-day event which costs them £50 each plus flights.

Delegates will listen to presentations, including a motivational talk from

former 400metre hurdler Kriss Akabusi, MBE, attend workshops on industry

issues and talk to product providers.

The convention concludes with a black tie gala dinner in Monaco&#39s Sporting

Club where awards will be presented to IFAs and product providers,

including provider of the year.

Delegates have the opportunity to contribute to Destination Florida to

Bankhall staff going along as helpers. Its target is to beat the

£72,000 that was raised at last year&#39s conference in Birmingham.
