UKPF Experiences Huge Success At National Exhibition
UK Property Finance had not previously been on the exhibitors list of a show this size before but certainly made the most of the 4 days exhibiting. The national homebuilding & renovating show is open to the trades and general public to source the latest building materials for their project. The latest innovations in building technology are show cased in front of large crowds. 5 Seminar halls are filled through-out the event with back-to-back lectures.
“The advice Gary and Ewan gave, has made me really motivated to roll my sleeves up on my refurbishment property”
An estimated 36000 visitors piled into the NEC in Birmingham over the course of the event. A team of 4 including UKPF’s managing director, Gary Latham, were on hand to offer advice and quotations relating to their current project.
Gary led the team in providing quality advice and handing out informative literature to passers-by. Enthusiastically UKPF spoke to hundreds of clients each day and found plenty of unique projects needing specialist finance solutions. Mr Singh from Edgbaston, Birmingham commented “It’s unusual not to see more finance advisors here. The advice Gary and Ewan gave, has made me really motivated to roll my sleeves up on my refurbishment property”
Every morning, a tannoy announcement was made and large crowds could be seen running into the exhibition halls with the mayhem of black Friday. The halls filled up within minutes and a queue formed around stand H139.
Mrs Betteridge from Diss, Suffolk approached one of the team as soon as the exhibition opened and said ‘Oh fantastic! I’ve found you! I need your advice on property finance’. This continued through-out the day. By 11:30 am, an orderly queue had formed down the main aisle of potential clients looking to see Gary and the team. 25 requested quotations where emailed to UKPF HQ within first morning of the exhibition.
‘How to finance your development project – An expert guide to different funding sources’
The event came to a pinnacle during the weekend when Ewan Duncan, Senior Consultant took to the stage to host a seminar in front of a large audience. The master class theatre was in the heart of the exhibition and drew large crowds with lectures on everything from underfloor heating to timber frame builds. Ewan presented a 20-minute seminar on ‘how to finance your development project – An expert guide to different funding sources’. The presentation described in detail the versatility and flexibility of bridging loans. Ewan was able to address the audience’s common misconceptions when it comes to development finance and provide a detailed approach to choosing finance for your project.
