Specialist property finance trade body FIBA has confirmed that it will hold a virtual ‘Annual Conference 2021’ on January 20.
The event, which will mark FIBA’s third anniversary, will showcase its strategy for the future, as well as launch a further range of benefits for its members and partners.
The conference will have an array of virtual event technology available, enabling a variety of sessions including plenary presentations and debates. There will also be exhibition rooms where delegates can meet with lenders and other partners.
Interbay Commercial, Market Financial Solutions, Roma Finance and CG & Co have already agreed to sponsor the event and executive chairman Adam Tyler is confident of a strong response from across the sector.
He comments: “Having run a successful series of webinars with over 1,000 brokers engaging with just one series during lockdown, we are confident that our conference will attract plenty of interest from delegates who either are or want to be involved in the specialist property finance space.”
“With our membership having increased by another 50% in 2020 as well, we are clearly gaining the approval of significant numbers of advisers across the industry.”
FIBA aims to provide the specialist property finance community ‘a home within which everyone can benefit’, offering exclusive lender arrangements, a dedicated FIBA PI blog policy, FIBA TV and its collaboration with Knowledge Bank.
Tyler concludes: “Whilst the virtual environment cannot replace the value of human-to-human interaction, it will be great to discuss our industry, see who is going to feature in 2021, meet up with old friends and listen to some different speakers, combining all of this with what is going to be our very positive outlook at the start of a brand-new year.”
