Mortgage Business Expo outlines improvements

Mortgage Business Expo has outlined its priority action points to be completed ahead of its London exhibition, following the first meeting of its advisory panel.

The panel, made up of exhibitors, delegates and key industry figures met in London on July 26, providing feedback and recommendations to the Expo team.

The list of key action points to be undertaken ahead of London will include an appointment making system so delegates can plan a timetable of meetings at Expo, upgrading the MBE website to be more user-friendly and allow them to vote on the seminars they would like to see at the Expo, with an emphasis on social networking.

The Expo will upgrade its pavilion seminar theatres to provide much more soundproofing and aims to control the number of non-exhibiting supplier companies who attend the show to ensure visitors and exhibitors get more value from the event.

While delegate pre-registration to increase attendance will be the focus, all walk-up visitors to London, who have not pre-registered will have to pay an admission price – all of which will be donated to homelessness charity, Shelter.

MBE Manchester show director Daniel Nwaokolo says: “The first advisory panel meeting was particularly useful in providing a wide range of feedback and recommendations regarding the structure and the content of our shows.

“From this we have produced a range of action points that we intend to deliver for the London show. We have also taken on board a range of recommendations from panel members that are currently under consideration.”

MBE London takes place on November 14 and 15 at Earls Court 2. For information please visit
