Finance Professional Show 2015 registration opens with 70% sold out
The UK’s foremost financial services exhibition is officially open for registration, with already 70 per cent of stands sold out. On November 4th, London’s Olympia Central will host over 1,500 finance professionals for the third annual Finance Professional Show.

NACFB CEO Adam Tyler commented on the launch of the 2015 event: “Once again it is great to see the impending gathering of such a huge number of lenders, all together under one roof in central London at Olympia. The variety and type of exhibitor just keep growing and now has even wider appeal right across lending spectrum.”

Karen Bennett, Sales and Marketing Director, Commercial Mortgages, Shawbrook Bank, commented: “We are delighted to be a lead sponsor at such a standout event in the industry calendar. The FP show encompasses a huge variety of lenders and product providers and the available content will be a great asset for intermediaries.”
Dragonfly has supported the FP Show for three years running and Head of Sales and Marketing, Mark Posniak, had this to say: "The Finance Professional Show is one of the must-attend events for anyone within the property finance sector. Anyone who's anyone is there. It's a great place to catch up with old contacts, make new ones, and get a sense of where the sector is at and also bounce ideas around— all in a relaxed and professional environment. As in previous years, Dragonfly wouldn't miss it and are proud to be a sponsor."
Specialist business finance provider Just Cashflow’s John Davies is looking forward to creating new relationships based on the funding gap presented by mainstream banks: “It is well documented that traditional banks aren't able to fully meet the finance demands of SMEs following the fallout from the financial crisis. Unfortunately, too many businesses give up looking for finance if their bank turns them down because they simply don't know local commercial brokers exist and the services they can provide. "We have had great success working with brokers who recognise that businesses are crying out for their expertise and the Finance Professional Show provides us with a great opportunity to showcase how we can work with brokers to unlock this opportunity.”
This year’s exhibition will showcase up to 100 finance providers and feature a brand new business workshop space.
