It’s been a whopping 806 days since the last NACFB Commercial Finance Expo was held at the NEC. So, all eyes were on the return of the expo on 30th September and it didn’t disappoint.
From its new home in the larger hall 8, the Patrons and members of the NACFB took the mantle and provided a bigger and more extensive show than ever before.
We certainly did our part by taking our largest stand yet at the expo.
As the doors opened at 9.30am you could sense the excitement of being able to meet and greet new and old contacts from across the industry.
By 10.30am our stand was extremely busy with brokers telling us about their clients. Lunchtime came and went and we all finally managed to take a breather around 2pm. A quick sandwich, a check of emails and we were back to handing out our notebooks, pens and mobile phone holders and talking about the benefits of Revolving Credit Facilities with our visitors.
Laden down with goodie bags and gifts, the delegates started to drift away from the expo. Tired, feet hurting (a special mention to all the female exhibitors and delegates who wore high heels that day) and happy to have met and spoken to real people and not just a face on a screen.
At 4.30pm the doors closed, and another NACFB Commercial Finance expo was over with.
Fingers crossed we won’t have to wait another 806 days before the next one!
