FP Show 2017 hails record visitor numbers
The fifth Finance Professional Show (FP Show), which took place on the 8th November has reported that visitor numbers were up 13% on the 2016 event with over 2000 attendees, despite a rail strike on major lines into London on the day.
The FP Show, with floor space dedicated to exhibitors increased by 10% due to demand, brought together the very best in product providers and was opened by Sir Christopher Meyer,former UK Ambassador to the US, who gave the keynote speech.
The seminar sessions in the Conference Theatre and The Hub also reported record attendance.
Rachel Fellows of R&R Events, the organiser of the FP Show, said, “Given the adverse circumstances surrounding the train strike, nothing seems to have dampened visitor enthusiasm to attend. We are delighted with how the 2017 FP Show turned out. Attendee numbers were up, and initial feedback from our exhibitors and sponsors indicates a surge in quality, too, with many excited to increase their presence next year. The conference programme was an ambitious undertaking but one which definitely paid off. We would like to extend our appreciation to all exhibitors, sponsors, visitors, speakers and suppliers for their support and look forward to doing it all again in 2018!”
Christopher Adamou, Managing Director of short term property finance lender, Lendhub, commented, “We were delighted with the response we had from brokers at this year’s FP Show. The venue was consistently busy and I was particularly impressed that most brokers we spoke to had come to engage with exhibitors like Lendhub and demonstrated a willingness to hear how we could help them and their clients. The FP Show has been our most effective means of reaching large numbers of intermediaries in one place this year and we will definitely be looking to book again for 2018.”
