Next Thursday, May 6 will see the biggest one-day show for financial intermediaries return to London's Olympia.
With 50 CPD-accredited conference sessions and over 100 exhibitors, Money Marketing Live will once again give financial intermediaries the opportunity to discuss some of the key challenges they face with senior industry figures.
In addition to four product-specific arenas, new features for this year include access to the leading intermediary technology show Advisertech and two new arenas – with one dedicated to highlighting services delivered by the mortgage networks and the other to international financial products.
Designed to arm you with the knowledge you need to understand the threats and opportunities of the coming radical regulatory reform, Money Marketing Live will contain 10 streams of conference content covering the latest developments in the fund, investment, pension, technology, offshore, mortgage and protection markets, creating the biggest-ever interactive event for financial service professionals.
The show has brought together the industry's leading minds to speak on and debate the issues that really affect financial services.
David Kenmir, director of the FSA, will present the keynote session in the main arena and will be followed by industry experts, including Paul Smee, director general of Aifa, Keith Popplewell, managing director of Professional Briefing and Gary Withers, chief executive of Norwich Union Life.
The FSA will be holding a surgery at the event for delegates to ask regulatory questions or discuss any issues they may have and the Financial Ombudsman Service will be in attendance to discuss its jurisdiction and the complaints' procedure.
The exhibition will feature over 100 leading product and service companies and visitors will be able to discuss business with product providers in the relaxed hospitality areas.
Not to be missed are the looped interviews that will be shown in the Money Marketing Zone. Hear Andrew Smith, MP, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, and Professor David Miles, author of the Miles report into longer-term mortgage lending speak exclusively to Money Marketing Live.
Along with full hospitality, available throughout the day, you will also be able to visit the 1st Software Cyber Cafe where you can check your email and keep in touch with your office.
You could also have the chance to win an MG TF160 sports car. A prize draw will take place at 1.30pm and the keys will be handed to one lucky delegate.
Money Marketing Live will take place on Thursday, May 6 in the National Hall at London's Olympia from 8.45am-4.45pm.
