It’s time for our commercial finance brokers to pencil in the dates

We held our inaugural ‘Meet the Funders’ expo in June of last year and the two-day event was judged to be so successful – both by our own commercial finance brokers and also by 40 of our funding partners – that it was resolved to arrange a second event this year.  It hasn’t been forgotten.  There is absolutely no danger that will be allowed to happen, but since we now hold our annual conference in June we realised that we would have to rearrange the timing of our ‘Meet the Funders’ expo.  What we decided was to move the event to the beginning of December.  That way we can double up the benefits and the value of our get-together.  Firstly, our franchisees will enjoy a fruitful meeting with many of our funders; and secondly, it’s the perfect time of year for everyone – franchisees and funders – to socialise and celebrate our successful SME funding achievements throughout 2019.  Consequently, the second Synergy Commercial Finance ‘Meet the Funders’ expo is now scheduled to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday 3rd and 4th December 2019.

Once again, the event will be held at the centre of the country at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Birmingham.  This is judged to be the most convenient location for all our commercial finance brokers.  For this year’s event though the expo will be considerably bigger than in 2018 and we anticipate that across the two days our brokers will get the opportunity to meet one-to-one with no fewer than 50 of Britain’s top specialist funders.

Last year’s event proved just how valuable these face-to-face meeting can be and subsequently we received numerous reports of deals that had been done directly as a result of the meetings and the new relationships that had been struck between funding companies and our commercial finance brokers.

The other pleasing aspect of last year’s two-day get-together was that in addition to meeting up with some of the UK’s top commercial lending sources, our brokers were able to mix and mingle with each other in valuable networking sessions.  Everyone was quick to confirm that forging new relationships with fellow commercial finance brokers can be extremely beneficial for future business dealings.

The delegation of funders will vary with each day and we are ensuring that this mix of specialist lending sources will accurately match the interests of our brokers and also reflect the changing UK market conditions.

By December of course we are hopeful that the confusion surrounding the outcome of the Brexit negotiations will have been resolved and businesses across the country will be eager to secure the commercial finance funding they need to support their future plans.  Our ‘Meet the Funders’ expo will undoubtedly be of great assistance.
