Tangerine out and about at the Commercial Finance Expo
Yesterday we headed south to Birmingham with our client BusinessComparison.com to attend the NACFB 6th annual Commercial Finance Expo – the only show in the UK dedicated to the business finance community. Over 100 exhibitors from across the business finance arena set up stall in the Pavilion arena with some pretty impressive stands vying for attention.
More than 1,200 attendees had the opportunity to listen to an impressive programme of speakers discuss the key issues facing the asset finance industry. These included, Kate McAleenan from the British Business Bank, Stephen Johnson, Deputy CEO of Shawbrook Bank, and MD of Asset Finance at Aldermore, Carl D’Ammassa.
With access to finance, especially for SMEs, such a big topic at the moment, it was refreshing to see and hear so many positive stories reflecting the wealth of options out there for businesses looking for alternative finance outside of traditional lenders.
After meeting so many great people, eating our fair share of sweets, and using up all our business cards trying to win magnums of champagne, we’re already looking forward to next year!
